Club Soda is my OOPS! I can’t believe I spilled that spotter`
WHY DOES CLUB SODA WORK? The salts in it keep things from staining and the carbonation bubbles up dirt and spots so they are easier to remove.
Clean Porcelain & Stainless Steel
Club soda is the perfect cleaning agent for porcelain. Clean with a soft cloth wrung out in the club soda and wipe dry to prevent water stains and spots. A micro fiber cloth is especially good for drying and buffing, Apply club soda to stainless steel with a micro fiber cloth and then buff.
Combine in a spray bottle:
3 Tablespoons of lemon juice
2 Cups of club soda
1 teaspoon Cornstarch.
Shake well prior to each use to keep the cornstarch mixed well. The cornstarch puts the shine on the windows.
Spray and wipe.
Clean Your Car’s Windshield
Sometimes windshield wipers just aren’t enough. Always be prepared with a spray bottle of seltzer/club soda to keep your car’s windshield clean. You actually can buy the large bottle for about 49 cents and put a regular sprayer on top to use. Use inside and out. It will not damage or stain the dash area.
Clean Precious Gems. Keep your jewelry looking good by cleaning with seltzer/club soda. Let the jewelry soak in a glass of the club soda/seltzer overnight. For glued pieces, soak 5 minutes and then buff dry.
Remove Clothing Stains. Pour seltzer/club soda on clothing stains and blot. For tougher problems, soak the area in club soda for an hour or so
Use club soda to remove wine stains. To remove a red wine stain from fabric or carpet, generously douse the fresh stain with club soda and gently blot (don’t rub) the stain with a clean cloth or pad of paper towels until it disappears. Club soda is slightly acidic, so be sure to flush the fabric or carpet with water once the stain is gone.
Use club soda to water your houseplants. Club soda contains a slew of macronutrients essential to plant growth: carbon, oxygen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, and sodium. To perk up your houseplants, water them with club soda once a week, or spritz them with a club soda foliar spray.
Use club soda to clean up pet urine. If your pet had an accident on the carpet, blot up as much of the urine (or vomit) as possible with paper towels. Saturate the area with club soda, let it fizz until the bubbles subside, and blot again. Repeat until the stain is removed, and let the carpet air dry. If needed, clean the area with your favorite carpet spotter or enzyme product. Use an odor eliminator like ODORZOUT. Odorzout.com.
Use club soda to loosen rusted nuts and bolts. If you have some stubborn nuts and bolts that have rusted on and no WD-40 on hand, pour some club soda over them and soak for a few hours. For items you can’t soak, wrap a soda-dampened towel around the nuts and bolts and let it sit. The carbonation helps to bubble the rust away, loosening the bolts without requiring a lot of elbow grease on your part.
