I just read this somewhere online a while ago, but it would be interesting to hear a expert in the matter. Maybe JBaymore could share his personal view with us.

Baking soda is water soluble and shouldn't clog anything. Unless you are trying to clean stains or get rid of odors, I don't think it is necessary to boil a teapot with it. In any case, I strongly doubt it will hurt anything. It is such a good cleaner for stains on ceramics. My wife makes a paste and coats our porcelain cups from time to time. Makes them look new again. Good to get stains out of all ceramics. Great stuff.
