Club soda is an excellent way to clean without the use of harsh chemicals. You’ll love these easy tips for cleaning surfaces and items around your home with club soda. That’s right—the same seltzer you enjoy as a beverage is an excellent tool for cleaning things inside—and even outside—your home.
Club Soda For Fabric
If you’ve gone out to a restaurant to eat and spilled some food or drink on your clothing, simply ask the waiter to bring you a small amount of club soda. Using your napkin, dab a bit on the stain, rubbing softly to minimize its appearance. Toss the article of clothing into the washing machine when you get home. The seltzer helps prevent the stain from setting, so the area should come clean in the wash.
For Your Toilet and Bathroom Sink
Club soda is an excellent cleaner for your toilet bowl and porcelain sinks. Pour a couple of cups of it into the toilet bowl and allow it to remain there for a few minutes. Use your toilet brush to scrub away water stains that leave unsightly rings. Then dampen a soft cloth with the seltzer and clean your bathroom sink. It will wind up sparkling clean.
Cast Iron Skillet
As an alternative method of cleaning your rusty cast iron skillet, pour some club soda into the pan and allow it to remain there for a few minutes. The carbonation in the seltzer will bubble the rust away.
Kitchen and Bathroom Countertops
Pour club soda into a spray bottle and spray directly on your kitchen and bathroom countertops. Wipe dry with a soft cloth for a clean and shiny glow.
Your Vehicles’ Windshield
Yes, club soda is even an excellent cleaner for your windshield. Have you ever come out of the house and noticed a wealth of dead bug bodies on your windshield? If so, pour some this seltzer into a spray bottle and spray your windshield with a generous amount. Allow to set for a minute or two before you wipe away with a squeegee or paper towels.
Better yet, let your car or truck do some of the work for you. Turn on your windshield wipers and let them wipe the seltzer—and those pesky bugs—away.
Yes, club soda is more than a cool drink on a hot day. It’s an excellent agent for many of your everyday household cleaning needs.
