Uses & Applications

Cooking: Baking powder, composed of acidic chemicals, reacts with baking soda to release carbon dioxide, shaping bread texture and preventing metallic flavor, and can be mixed for lighter items.                                                

Disinfectant: Although baking soda doesn't have strong disinfecting qualities, it can work well as a fungicide against some types of organisms and is a dependable way to lessen the stench of used books.

In addition, it is a component of various personal hygiene products, baking mixes, and antacids. It is used in eye hygiene to treat blepharitis and as a buffering agent in nasal irrigation. Mouthwashes, nasal irrigation solutions, and effervescent pills also include sodium bicarbonate. It is crucial to remember that using it ought to be done under supervision and with caution.                  

Agricultural uses: Sodium bicarbonate inhibits the growth of fungus on leaves. Chlorosis and fruit browning can result from excessive dosages.                                                                  

Cleaning agent: Sodium bicarbonate is utilized in soda blasting to eliminate paint and rust from materials such as copper, aluminum, and wood. You can use a baking soda paste for mild scrubbing. To get rid of strong stains and smells, washing machines often employ baking soda.
