Another Indispensable: Baking Soda

Baking soda has many uses in the home, and some of these translate to uses for campers as well. For example:

As a deodorizer, place an open container of baking soda in your cooler or ice chest when it’s stored; keep the container in the refrigerator of your RV whether it’s on the road or in storage.

As a cleaner, use baking soda to wipe the picnic table at your campsite, or the plastic tablecloth that you spread over the table. Wipe the inside of your cooler or refrigerator with baking soda.

As a fire extinguisher, keep the box of baking soda handy to smother fires that get out of hand, either in your RV or at the campfire. Baking soda is especially effective on burning fat, where pouring water would only scatter the flames and make it worse.
