  • You don't want to use the arm and hammer scented stuff...but you can use regular baking soda. You can add your own scents to it, as well (essential oils, just a couple drops), but I might wait on that until baby is older. When I put the baking soda down, I keep the kids out of the room for a little bit...that way it doesn't get tracked lol!

  • Absolutely. My babies ahve a lot of allergies, and if they break out in hives I put them in the tub with warm water and baking soda. Helps calm their skin down, so using it to clean with is the safest thing to use!
