Baking soda gets rid of urinary tract infections. I'm not kidding! I took 1 teaspoon in 8 ounces of water. I did this 3 times a day for the first day, then, 2 times the second day, and finally, 1 time on the last day. I felt relief by the end of the first day. After 3 days, my UTI went away and did not come back.
