Clever uses for Club Soda:

1. Protect your hair – Rinse with club soda after a dip in the pool. The fizz helps combat the damage caused by chlorine.

2. Make fluffier pancakes – Nix the salt and substitute club soda for half the milk in your favorite recipe. The carbonation gives the batter extra lift.

3. Soothe a troubled tummy – Club soda contains sodium bicarbonate, which is an antacid used to treat heartburn, indigestion and upset stomach.

4. Clean cast-iron pans – Simplify scrubbing by pouring some soda in a still-warm skillet. The bubbles help keep food particles from sticking.

5. Water houseplants – Don’t pour out a bottle that’s gone flat – use it to give your flowers and plants a drink. The potassium and other minerals will enrich the soil.

Happiness and Good Health is my Christmas Wish for you and a Happy New Year!
