Latinos LOVE Baking Soda. Baking soda is a Latino favorite because it serves so many purposes. Where else can you find under $5 a household cleaner that you can use as liquid laundry detergent that removes stains, and eliminates odors?! Some people use it for cooking too (I would never, yet I don't know how to cook). However, I do put an open box of it inside my refrigerator to keep it smelling fresh and it works like a charm!
