We just found a great list of 30 innovative uses for baking soda and had to share!
Baking soda is pure sodium bicarbonate, a chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Also known as bicarb or sodium bicarb, it is a naturally occurring mineral that has been in use since ancient times and is found in many places all over the world.
Baking soda has an intriguingly wide variety of possible uses. As the name suggests, it can be used in baking – however it also has numerous therapeutic, DIY and cleaning uses.
Baking soda is a leavening agent which is most commonly used in baking: When you add baking soda to any acidic substance – like vinegar, yogurt, buttermilk etc, the baking soda will cause a reaction which releases carbon dioxide in the form of small bubbles. This reaction is what will cause the dough to rise, and cakes to be light and fluffy.
Baking soda should not be confused with baking powder. Baking soda consists of pure sodium bicarbonate. Baking powder, on the other hand, consists of not only sodium bicarbonate (or a similar ingredient such as calcium acid phosphate), but also a weak acid and a starch such as corn or potato starch. Because baking soda is pure sodium bicarbonate, a reaction will only take place when moist and when an acidifying agent is present. Baking powder, however, will react as soon as it is moistened because the acidifying agent is already present.
Aluminum-free baking soda
There is some confusion over aluminum-free baking soda. Sometimes, sodium aluminum sulphate is used in baking powder – however some have health concerns over the use of aluminum. Baking soda is (or should be) pure sodium bicarbonate – and so will not contain aluminum. If you are particular about the products you use, including your baking soda, always check the label to see if it is aluminum free. Arm & Hammer Baking Soda (Amazon link) is pure.
All in all, baking soda has an amazing number of uses – and it is also widely regarded as a “low cost solution” that effectively replaces numerous more expensive products.
