There are many benefits of this amazing powdery white. Who said you should only use it in your cooking recipes. According to professional move out cleaners from Sydney, thanks to whom I found the amazing benefits of baking soda in cleaning and in the garden, I am writing this post to encourge you to go green in your garden.

1. Make a Non-Toxic Fungicide. As you may know one of the best qualities of baking soda is that it absorbs extra moisture and odor. All types of fungi need humidity to reproduce. Use your mixture of baking soda and water on black spot fungus and grapes and vines.

2. Fight effectively powdery mildew. Powdery mildew is responsible for quite a lot of headaches and does harm to lillacs, cucumbers, squash and and many more! Spray directly!

Spray Recipe: 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 gallon of water, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid. Spray weekly!

3. Discourage weeds and gnats in soil.

For Weeds: Sip baking soda in patio cracks so you don't have weeds growing from there.

For Gnats: Mix in 1 gallon of water, 4 teaspoons baking soda, 1 teaspoon biodegradable soap. Mix well, spray infected foliage or soil as needed.
