Useful baking soda

Wow, I didn’t know that there are so many uses to baking soda.  Such a humble cooking ingredient can be so useful.

It’s an effective remedy to heartburn, digestive distress, stomach upset and fatigue.  It’s an effective toothpaste.  It can be a soothing bath if you are suffering from sun burn.  It can draw out toxins from your skin if you are suffering from insect bites.

    Just a note on the baking soda for digestive upsets. I had used it for years as had my family before me. It was only when my husband’s doctor was examining him for stomach problems and heard that he’d been using baking soda at my suggestion that I became alarmed. This internist told us that you can literally blow your stomach apart using it. He then went on to illustrate this by telling us of an emergency room incident with someone who had eaten Mexican food and then took some baking soda.

    Sorry. It’s great for everything else you’re stating, but the stomach solution could be a permanent cure.

    Hi Cathering,

    Thank you for that dose of reality. It is good to be reminded that household remedies do not work for all cases. Our intake of any food should not be excessive. What’s good for us can work against us if it exceeds what our body can accept.

    It also helps to know something about chemistry. 🙂
