Not only can baking soda be used in cleaning and other ways at home, but there are also several baking soda garden uses, as well. Here are some ways to use baking soda effectively in your garden.
The 100% eco-friendly baking soda can be used at any time of the year, in any corner of the garden. It is biodegradable and non-toxic and can be used in place of pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals. Let’s take a look at some of the best uses of baking soda in the garden!
Baking Soda Uses in the Garden
1. Houseplant cleaner
It is important to regularly clean the foliage of your houseplants to remove dust and grease, in order to promote photosynthesis.
We recommend that you gently wipe the surface of the leaves (top and bottom) with a soft, lint-free cloth moistened with a solution of water and baking soda (a pinch of baking soda in a liter of water).
2. Clean garden furniture
Add 1/2 cup of baking soda and a tablespoon of dishwashing liquid to a gallon of warm water. Take a sponge and clean the garden furniture with it, then rinse it with clean water.
3. Give plants a boost
Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of clear ammonia, and 1 teaspoon of Epsom salt into a gallon of water. Mix well and give each plant about a quarter of the solution.
This solution will work as a fertilizer for dull-looking, slow-growing plants. They will wake up, rejuvenate their growth and become green and lush.
4. Eliminate the smell of compost
To keep the smell of the compost pile under control, use a small amount of baking soda to eliminate odors. This helps prevent acid build-up.
5. Clean the birdbath and pots
