By Diane Forrest,

Well this has been a very busy month, with all the parties, baking, eating and family fun is it any surprise that the end of the month would be National Bicarbonate of Soda day?  Bicarbonate of Soda, or baking soda as it is commonly called, is useful for so many things especially during the month of December.  It is used for baking all those Christmas goodies and also for indigestion after eating all those goodies.  It is also useful for cleaning and removing stubborn stains and for keeping odors out of the refrigerator.  Some more uses include:
  • Removing odor in kitty litter
  • It is used in fire extinguishers for grease and oil fires
  • It is often used as a cleaning agent
  • It can be used as a meat tenderizer
  • Put it in water with beans to minimize flatulence from eating beans
  • Polish Silverware
  • Remove burned food from a pot or a pan

Since most of the baking for the season has been done...it will probably be useful now as an antacid.  Just mix a level teaspoon in a glass of water, mix and drink.  It has been a common staple in medicine cabinets for years, and the best part is the price.  It costs less than a dollar, and is so useful in all types of areas.  So, after you have baked, and used it for indigestion, dip your toothbrush in the soda and brush your teeth, it will whiten your smile too.
