What exactly is sodium bicarbonate?

Sodium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, is an alkaline compound that dissolves in water. This white, powdery substance is known for its versatility in many different applications.

Sodium bicarbonate has a handful of other common names as well. These include bicarb, bicarbonate of soda, bicarb soda, and sodium bicarb. All of these refer to the same material.

Sodium bicarb (baking soda) is often confused with baking powder. What’s the difference? In simple terms, baking powder is a mixture of BOTH baking soda and an acid. This added acid is typically a weak one, such as potassium bitartrate (or cream of tartar).

What are some common uses for sodium bicarbonate?

Sodium bicarb can be used to get rid of pests!

Let’s start with ants. They’re some of the peskiest insects around, and are typically considered pests. Have you spotted an ant hill in your yard? If so, then buying sodium bicarbonate is a good idea. Pour bicarb soda on the hill, add a little vinegar, and voila! Say goodbye to that entire colony!

Do you have a garden? If so, then you understand that aphids can do some real damage to your plants. How does bicarbonate of soda come into play? Simply mix a teaspoon of bicarb soda with one-third of a cup of cooking oil. Add this to a spray bottle, and spray your garden! It’s a completely-safe mixture for your plants, but fatal to aphids.

Bicarb soda could save your life by extinguishing a grease fire!

Let’s face it, grease fires happen. You could be in the kitchen cooking-up one of your favourite dishes, and BAM! There’s a grease fire that has literally ruined your appetite!

When we think of fires, it’s common to think that a good solution is to throw water on it. But in the case of a grease fire, water will only make it worse! Bicarb soda WILL EXTINGUISH a grease fire, and it works by smothering the fire (depriving it of oxygen). It could save your life.

Bicarbonate of soda can be used in the application of many cleaning processes!

It is extremely versatile when it comes to cleaning. For example, it’s common to find bicarb as a teeth-cleaning agent. Buy sodium bicarb for dentures too.

Bicarb soda can also be used to unclog drains, shine shoes, wash dishes, and remove stains from carpets. You can also buy bicarb soda to soften your bath or exfoliate skin.
