DRIVERS are realizing that they can remove dashboard scratches with a 4p B&M product they already have in their closets.
Expert Bob Vila reveals how to use baking soda to get rid of scratches.
First, clean the dashboard area around the scratch with a mixture of warm water and a few drops of dish soap.
Then, using equal parts water and baking soda, make a thick paste – and then apply this to the scratch with a dry cloth.
Wash off the baking soda with more water before checking if the scratch is gone.
If it’s still there, repeat the process for up to ten minutes until you’ve successfully removed it.
At B&M you can get a 200 g can of Dr. Oetker Baking Powder for just £1.39.
The teaspoon of baking soda you need for the trick is around 6g – which works out to around 4p per serving.
Another cleaning expert suggested you could also use baking soda to remove gross yellow stains on pillows.
The yellow stains are caused by sweat seeping through the pillowcase onto the pillow underneath.
Other possible causes of the stains include greasy or wet hair, makeup, and drool.
The expert said: “You can spot treat the stains first, either with a store-bought stain remover spray or cream, or with a paste made from a mixture of baking soda and water.”
This comes after a lingerie expert found out how many times you can wear your bra without washing it – and that’s less than you think.
