Let’s talk about a favorite go to of mine. I want to share ways to use Club Soda. Keep reading, you will be surprised.
Club soda is essentially plain, unflavored carbonated water. There’s not much too it, and it doesn’t taste great by itself — unless you really like that kind of thing. But fortunately, it’s good for a host of other household stuff. Once you’ve read these 10 club soda hacks, you might just want to go out and grab a few bottles to have on hand!
Ways To Use Club Soda
1. Cleaning Jewelry
Ring starting to look a little dull? Soak it in a bit of club soda overnight, and it’ll be back to it’s shiny self by morning!
2. Rinsing Your Hair
Especially if you have color-treated hair, use some club soda for a rinse after you go swimming. It’ll help prevent your perfect color from becoming not-so-perfect. It’ll also help with frizz.
3. Soothing Nausea
If you or the kids have a tummy bug, try some club soda. It’ll help you feel better in a jiffy.
4. Cleaning Surfaces
Kitchen and bathroom counters, stovetops, and more can benefit from a club soda cleaning. Just spray and wipe, and watch how it adds shine.
5. Feeding Plants
I didn’t know this before, but club soda contains minerals that are great for your houseplants. Let it go flat first, then use it for watering. Do this about once a week. Your plants will appreciate the boost.
6. Adding Fluffiness to Foods
Anything you mix with water can be mixed with club soda if it could use extra fluffiness. Think about waffles and pancakes, batters, and omelets.
7. Pre-Treating Stains
This is one you’ve probably heard of, but it’s so great that it bears repeating. Dab a little club soda onto a spill as soon as you can, and before laundering. It’ll help remove the stain so your detergent can do its job better.
8. Ways To Use Club Soda-Cleaning Cookware
Got a burned mess in your favorite frying pan? Club soda can come to the rescue! Just soak it for a few hours or overnight, beginning while the pan is still a little warm (not hot…and beware of cracking any ceramic with the temperature change). It’ll make the mess much easier to clean up.
9. Oysters, Anyone?
If you love oysters but don’t love prying the little buggers open, try soaking them in club soda first. They won’t slip out without effort, but opening them will be much easier.
10. Tame Urine Smell
Club soda’s stain-removing properties make it great for that ketchup stain, but it also works well removing stains and odors associated with pet accidents. It’ll help remove the smell, and as you know, getting rid of the smell is important for preventing repeat occurrences! Now to get rid of those fleas…
