I buy baking soda by the bag at Costco. I have one in the laundry room but don't need it taking up space in the kitchen and each bathroom. After washing and drying the plastic containers from flavored coffee creamers, I slit the labels to remove and mark the bottles accordingly with a Sharpie. They're easy to fill with a funnel and the pour top allows me to sprinkle as needed. There's one under each sink and the big bag is convenient for refills on a shelf in the garage.

Great idea.Thanks for sharing.
I put the baking soda in clean Parmesan shake containers for the kitchen and baths and use like cleanser also.
Great idea! And I was just looking for an idea for my empty coffee creamer bottles the other day! Thanks!
I didn't know that Costco sold baking soda by the bag. This is why I will make a special trip to Costco! I use baking soda to clean my kitchen sink, to clean out plastic ware, in the laundry room, etc. Thumbs up.
Great idea! I usually use a Parmesan container but I find that the holes tend to clog. Can't wait to get a couple of empty creamers from my moms recycling bin.

When I was a child, my parents and family used BS to clean our teeth, along with old fashioned tooth powder. I used to use baking soda till the cost shot way up. I make use of cases of white, distilled vinegar and salt. Remind me please the various uses for baking soda.
