Club Soda is not something most people have on hand, but they really should. It’s inexpensive and can do so many things to make life easier around the house. Use in your beauty routine, for cooking and cleaning, outdoors, for your health and much more.
Club Soda – This WWII series is so much fun to do. I’m learning so much about the era, my family and some wonderful ways to save money. However, over the last couple of weeks it’s become harder to come up with topics, so if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.
This week my aunt suggested Club Soda. I don’t know about you but I have never used it. I’ve seen it on the shelves of the grocery store but never knew what to use it for. Of course, once I sent out the topic, my family schooled me in all of the different ways that it can be used.
Club Soda is mainly a carbonated water with added minerals. It’s the minerals in it that make it great for all of these household uses.
- Hair – to remove green color caused by chlorine, rinse your hair with club soda.
- Car – to clean the windshield, use club soda instead of glass cleaner.
- Carpets – to remove stains, pour club soda on the stain and scrub vigorously.
- Cast Iron – to clean, pour club soda in the pan while it’s still warm, once it’s cooled wipe clean.
- Jewelry – to make precious gems shine, soak gems in club soda overnight.
- Mirrors – to clean, use club soda instead of glass cleaner and a micro fiber cloth.
- Porcelain – to clean, spray with club soda and wipe with a soft cloth.

- Urine Stains – to remove the stain and odor, blot up as much urine as you can, then pour club soda over the stain and blot again.
- Gardens – to help plants grow, water your plants once a week with club soda, your plants will love all of the minerals.
- Fun with Club Soda – Fill a glass halfway with club soda and drop in a few raisins. Now watch as the raisins move up and down.
- Newspaper Clippings– to preserve and keep from yellowing or fading, mix one cap full of milk of magnesia into 4 cups of club soda. Let the mixture soak overnight then soak the clipping in the mixture for an hour. Blot dry.

I found that if you mix baking soda and vinegar into a paste then put it on cookie sheets, pots and pans, stove burner catch, ect and let it sit. After 5-10 minutes take a sponge with the scratcher and start to work on the spots. Depending on how bad the stains are or how much burnt on food is stuck, you might need to put some elbow grease into it. After you rinse the paste off wash the dish like normal.
I love these ideas and especially the raisins because I think my little ones will love that.
My kids get a kick out of it, I’m sure yours will too!
