Following this, Pagan tells us about his tricks with “baking soda”

For beauty:

  1. Deodorant: According to the expert and author of three books, baking soda is the best deodorant that could exist for humans. It is used dry on the armpits and then the excess is wiped off. It works to control strong odors and sweat.
  2. Toothpaste: For this area, baking soda works for cleaning, whitening teeth and removing bad odor. It is used with a toothbrush and a minimum amount of water, then brushing the teeth as usual.
  3. Acne: Just like the previous one, it is used with a little water and baking soda to create a paste. After this, it is placed on the pimple on the face at night. This helps the pimple to dry and not leave any kind of stain on the skin.
  4. Dry shampoo: It can also be used dry on the hair roots to remove temporary grease. The next day, you should wash your hair regularly.

For home:

  1. Cleaning in the kitchen: If after cooking in the oven or on the stove, it has become stained with grease, you can add a little baking soda to the area, then sprinkle a little white vinegar on top, and after an hour, you can remove the mixture with a damp cloth. Similarly, you can mix both things in a spray bottle and spray it on. This will help remove the grease crust and clean the area.
  2. Carpets: In this case, it is also sprayed dry and then left to rest for about one to two hours. After this, it is collected with a vacuum cleaner and this way it will have a nice smell.
  3. Toilet cleaning: Baking soda can also work to remove scale from the toilet bowl. This can be sprinkled on the affected area and then scrubbed with a brush.
  4. Shoe odor: This is an excellent remedy for combating the bad smell of closed shoes. It can be used after these shoes are worn and this will minimize the bad smell.

For welfare

  1. Alkalize/balance the body’s pH: If you combine half a tablespoon of baking soda, a glass of room temperature water and the juice of a lemon, you will see an improvement. This mixture should be taken on an empty stomach to have the correct effect.
  2. Heartburn/Reflux: If you suffer from heartburn, you can drink four ounces of water at a time with half a teaspoon of baking soda. NOTE: this remedy cannot be used regularly, as it can have negative effects on the body in the long term. This can be taken at any time, not necessarily on an empty stomach.
  3. Vocal ulcers: It is used to gradually dry out ulcers. You should apply it every day until the ulcer disappears. Don’t be alarmed if it burns, it is part of the process.

Likewise, Pagan emphasizes that before using any other remedy, whether for health or beauty, it should be verified and consulted beforehand to avoid further problems.
