Baking Soda for Kitchen Counters
Baking soda can be an effective way to clean the kitchen counters. It is a mild cleanser that is both non-abrasive and alkaline.
First, clear any dirty items off the countertop so you can see it when you start cleaning. Then, sprinkle some baking soda on the counter and wait for about 1 hour for it to dissolve.
After that, just go over the affected area with a damp cloth or sponge to clean up any stains or food spills left behind. You can also do this process again if the first time wasn’t enough to get rid of all the stains and dirt.
