I started keeping baking soda in a jar from minced onion. It has the shaker holes or the larger hole to shake more out. Recycle the spice or herb jars for cornstarch for gravies etc. They work great!
I keep baking soda in a cheese shaker I got at the Dollar store at my kitchen sink. I use the soda to wash fruits or veggies, or my hands if the soap needs a boost. I even sprinkle some in my dishpan to make the water softer if I am doing dishes by hand. I like the idea of quickly removing tea stains from cups!
