Discover the six surprising items and surfaces you should never clean with baking soda. Learn why baking soda may do more harm than good and explore alternative cleaning methods for a spotless home. Find eco-friendly cleaning solutions at SOVI & TYDI!

Baking soda is hailed as a miracle cleaner, capable of tackling tough stains and grime with ease. However, despite its versatility, there are certain items and surfaces that should never come into contact with baking soda. At SOVI & TYDI, we understand the importance of using safe and effective cleaning methods to maintain a pristine home environment. In this guide, we'll explore six common baking soda blunders to avoid, along with eco-friendly alternatives for a sparkling clean home.


  1. Mirrors and Glass Surfaces:

    While baking soda is great for scrubbing away stains on hard surfaces, it should never be used on mirrors or glass. The abrasive nature of baking soda can leave micro-scratches, dulling the appearance of glass surfaces. Instead, opt for a gentle glass cleaner or white vinegar solution for streak-free shine. Explore SOVI & TYDI's eco-friendly glass cleaner liquid for a crystal-clear finish.

  2. Ceramic Glass Cooktops:

    Cleaning a ceramic glass cooktop requires caution, as abrasive cleaners like baking soda can scratch the surface. Instead, use a cream cleanser or specialized cooktop cleaner to remove stubborn residue without causing damage. SOVI & TYDI offers a range of chemical-free floor cleaner liquid options for safe and effective cooktop maintenance.

  3. Gold Plated Items:

    Preserve the luster of gold-plated dishes and cutlery by avoiding baking soda as a cleaner. Baking soda's abrasive properties can scratch delicate gold plating, leading to irreversible damage. Stick to gentle cleansers like dish soap and microfiber cloths for gold-plated items. Explore SOVI & TYDI's range of eco-friendly dishwashing liquid for gentle yet effective cleaning.

  4. Aluminum Cookware:

    While baking soda is great for cleaning stainless steel, it should be avoided on aluminum cookware. Prolonged exposure to baking soda can cause aluminum to oxidize, resulting in discoloration. Instead, use dish soap and water or a lemon and white vinegar solution for stubborn stains. SOVI & TYDI's dishwasher liquid offers a chemical-free solution for aluminum cookware cleaning.

  5. Marble and Quartz Surfaces:

    Baking soda's abrasive nature makes it unsuitable for cleaning marble and quartz countertops. Avoid scratching and damage by using a cream or liquid cleanser specifically designed for these surfaces. Explore SOVI & TYDI's range of eco-friendly floor cleaner liquid options for safe and effective marble and quartz cleaning.

  6. Wood Floors and Furniture:

    Preserve the beauty of wood floors and furniture by avoiding baking soda as a cleaner. Baking soda can cause micro-scratches and erode the sealant, leaving wood vulnerable to damage. Instead, use a gentle wood cleaner or soapy water for routine maintenance. SOVI & TYDI's organic toilet cleaner is ideal for keeping wooden surfaces clean and protected.


While baking soda is a versatile cleaner, it's essential to use it wisely and avoid certain surfaces to prevent damage. By steering clear of these baking soda blunders and opting for eco-friendly cleaning solutions, you can maintain a pristine home environment without compromising on safety or effectiveness.
