    Hehe yeah I learnt that one trying to clean the shower. It was a bit of a moment for me – “whaddaya mean it’s not cleaning…??…but it’s fizzing…!!!??”.

    Live and learn, baby, live and learn!

  2. Crunchy_mama

    That fizzing is soooo deceptive! Oooooh look at the bubbles! It must be loosening all that grime and carrying it away… I wish it worked that way cuz it’s so much fun to make baking soda volcanos. I’d probably clean my bathroom all the time if it did.

    that recipe on pinterest looks familiar, although I’ve seen it without the baking soda. I’ve heard vinegar works well as a softener and wrinkle releaser. I haven’t tried it, so I can’t say for certain.

    • Crunchy Betty

      I do think, if you’re looking for the “reaction” to help you out, combining the two things works. Like with unclogging a drain or cleaning the garbage disposal. And it’s fun!

      Or! If you use the vinegar to neutralize the baking soda – after the main cleaning has happened. (Like with your face, especially.)

      I use vinegar and eucalyptus oil as my fabric softener. Like I said – may be the placebo effect, but I think my clothes are SO much softer and “nothing” smelling afterwards. Not so sure about the wrinkle releasing, though.

      I could probably tell, if I didn’t leave my clothes in the dryer for 5 hours after they were done. Heh.

      • cathy

        How much euc. oil do you use?

      • Stacie

        Vinegar IS a softener (not placebo at all). It also softens hair and removes oils. Mix 1 part vinegar : 3-4 water and add essential oils to the bottle to dial down the smell. Has no smell once hair is dry.

  3. Hold the phone! Does that mean The Best Homemade Bathroom Cleaner Ever, isn’t? I have my Amazon cart full of things to make it…Help a sister out!

    • Crunchy Betty

      It still TOTALLY is, without the vinegar. Just skip that part (it’s optional anyway) and your bathroom will shine. Yay full Amazon cart with crunchy stuff!

      • Stacie

        Vinegar dies softens — hair too (while removing oils).. mix 1 vinegar : 4 water with essential oils to dial down the smell. No smell when hair’s dry.

  4. Jen

    I’m glad I’ve been specifically told. If I hadn’t, when coming across one of those recipes my common sense and experience would have flown out the window.

    Another fun childhood experience is Mentos in Coca-Cola. That itself doesn’t exactly pertain to cleaning, except for the Coke. I read a story about a lady who put Coke in her ‘toilet of horrors’. And then it was a toilet of shiney awesomeness.

    • kaseyleilani

      I can see why that would work given the science experiments with soda on teeth. Makes me even more scared to drink it, but less scared to clean my BF’s bathroom!

      • Jen

        I know, right? Some instructions a little more specific: just dump your Coke in there and let it sit, thirty minutes to overnight. (Yup. That’s me, super specific. Mainly just because I don’t exactly know.)

  5. Wha – What? WHAT?! DOUBLEYOU TEE EFF?!?!?!?!?!

    Well, damn. There go all of my beliefs and dreams. I mean, really, if baking soda and vinegar is the equivalent of salted water, WHAT does that say about the rest of the world? What about Bonnie and Clyde, Donnie and Marie, peanut butter and jelly, pickles and peanut butter, FRENCH FRIES AND CHOCOLATE FROSTIES?!?!?!?!?!

    T_T Oh, what a cruel world it is…

  6. I do sometimes pour vinegar over my baking soda when I’m all done scrubbing with it. Maybe it is just for dramatic flair. But, I do think it helps break the soda down to rinse off better.

    As far as the laundry… I’ll stand by my vinegar in the wash for a rinse. It DEFINITELY helps with static cling and “softness” in my loads. I’ve noticed a marked difference w/o it.

    • Julie

      I agree with using vinegar only as a fabric softener rinse. No need for anything else to be added to have soft laundry. As far as static, I do add static balls to the dryer for extra heavy sweatshirts and the like in winter, but for most loads, the vinegar rinse alone is enough to keep away the static cling.

      • Stacie

        It does soften, the only thing though is that it seems to remove any of the nice smells from the detergent or additives you might use.

        • Julie

          That’s probably true if you choose to use those things. I have family members who are sensitive to fragrances so we quit using store bought detergents and make our own….fragrance and additive free.

  7. M

    I use the vinegar and baking soda as a mild cleaner for fake wood cabinets. It makes them look clean and the room smells better. I was pretty sure it wasn’t doing much of anything but they looked better to me.

    I also use baking soda and lemon for the tub – let the baking soda sit and then scrub it with a lemon half. That really seems to get rid of gunk and grime on the tub and is gentler than the no scrub abrasives (that probably killed ten million lung cells from inhaling the chemicals) I used to use. There’s lots of fizzy with this cleaner, but I think the chemical reaction may be different.

    Plus (and this is completely unscientifc) the fizzing makes me feel better. :)

    • Crunchy Betty

      Hee. “Fizzing makes me feel better.”

      One of my favorite ways to clean out the grody plastic coffee cup Skip insists on using (and literally turns black after a few months) is to pour some baking soda on top of a lemon and scrub the holy bejeezus out of it. Works like a charm.

      I think there are certain times where, if you put both of those things together (the acid and the baking soda), you end up with the goodness of both at once as well as the fizzy fun. BUT it has to be done immediately. If you try to mix ‘em ahead of time and just use the solution? Eh. Water.

  8. Amanda J.

    I actually did know cleaners with B.S. + vinegar = nonsense. 3 years of Chemistry in college, which I loathed but now find I use frequently. I have made your bathroom cleaner, which is fabulous. At least your recipe said it was ‘optional’; I’ve seen others that claim you cannot clean without it.

    Better to be silly and realize your silliness than, well, you know. We could all eat a little humble pie from time to time. We should correct common misinformation, lest we all end up like my drill sergeant father. 5’8″ with a 7’1″ ego. The rapture is more likely than him admitting he is mistaken during his lifetime.

    • Crunchy Betty

      Ahh … Napoleon. I used to be rather close to a guy JUST like that.

      Admitting our mistakes is the first step to perfection. (I just made that up. You can say it sometimes if you want.)

  9. Corie

    The only useful BS + Vinegar recipe I’ve ever heard of where these two worked together was to unclog a clogged drain. Pour baking soda into clogged drain then pour the vinegar. Let it foam until the foam dssolves and then rinse with super hot water. It’s worked for us when our drains have a mild clog. I doubt it will unclog anything that is completely stopped up though.

    I have a question about all this vinegar talk though.. When adding vinegar to laundry as a softener, does it make the clothes smell anything like vinegar? I mean even in the smallest amounts? I deplore the smell of vinegar so if so i will just go without softener.

    • KarinSDCA

      When you pour in the vinegar (which I put in the built-in fabric softener dispenser, but you can pour directly into the washer during the rinse cycle or use a “downy ball”), it smells like vinegar. Once your washer is finished, no smell.

      That said, I use vinegar less for the fabric softening effects and more for the laundry-freshening effects. I add a scoop of baking soda to my whites and linens for fresher laundry, but I use the vinegar for the darker loads. I use less than half the detergent this way and still have great-smelling clean laundry (smells like “nothing”) fresh out of the washer.

    • Crunchy Betty

      When I use it as a spray in the dryer, I don’t smell any vinegar afterwards, but the clothes have to be completely dry. One time I pulled them out a bit damp, and I could still smell it on one of the heavier sweaters.

      It absolutely does help cut WAY down on static cling (we live in such a dry area, and static cling is a way of life), and I think it makes the clothes softer, too. But probably 60% of my love for it is totally placebo – and loving to smell the eucalyptus oil when I spray the bottle.

  10. Liz

    When I first read that post I started thinking that that was the recipe for drain cleaner. You pour the baking soda in your drain and follow with vinegar. Foams up and then follow with Hot water. I was wondering how this would work for general cleaning, oh well, probably put a bit of excitement in a few homes when they tried it!

  11. Manda

    I’ve never combined the two (except for my own amusement). I will use vinegar to dissolve any leftover BS though. I have a spray bottle that is the mix of water and vinegar that sanitizes (with a few drops of tea tree oil). I use it for everything pretty much. I use BS for stuck on things or grime.

    ((Sometimes, after I’ve used BS to clean my toilet, before I flush, I make a small scale volcano..for fun))

    • KarinSDCA

      You wild girl, you! Cleaning toilets isn’t supposed to be fun, ya know. ;) LOL

      I think Manda’s tip would even encourage the menfolk to clean once in awhile…just don’t give ‘em your entire stash of baking soda! LOL

      • Crunchy Betty

        Speaking of which … is it just me, or is the price of baking soda going up bunches lately? I had to stop buying Bob’s Red Mill because it was so expensive and I switched over to Frontier (a local natural foods store sells it in bulk, so you can just buy what you need). But it was still $4.10 a pound. That seemed like a LOT of money, once I weighed out a pound.

        • KarinSDCA

          I compromise by buying cheaper baking soda for cleaning and the good stuff for eating/baking. I get 10-pound bags at Smart&Final for $3.xx. DH buys the good stuff at the health food store in the bulk spice area (a little different than the bulk flours/sugars area). He gets a scoop that lasts and lasts. (We put it in a glass baby food jar that is permanently labeled.) My 10-pound bag goes into a reused screw-top jar over and over and lasts a couple months.

          • KarinSDCA

            And, since reading The Zero Waste Home and My Plastic-free Life blogs, we’ve been reusing the 10-pound bags several times. Working our way to less and less “trash” all around… one baby step at a time. ;)

        • I get ours at CostCo… 13.5 lbs. A&H for $5.99. I split it between the housecleaning and the laundry.

        • Jen

          I haven’t noticed any price change, but that’s because I’m not in charge of the shopping. :) If you’re having a hard time finding affordable baking soda, I know a company that sells quality kitchen supplies at reasonable prices, and super huge packages. I think they sell to the Utah/Colorado/Idaho area. (You live in Colorado, don’t you?) It’s called Alison’s Pantry. They probably have BS at a good price. If not, you can just buy a wicked tasty brownie mix to make yourself feel better.

          (Why is it I always seem to be advertising stuff I like here? Am I a slave to corporate America? Do I even know what that means?)

        • Stacie

          I just bought a four-pound box at Walmart for $3.75. Off-brand is less than the A&H product. I hardly think there’s a difference, as BS seems to be BS to me, huh?

      • Manda

        I’d never clean if I couldn’t make it fun LOL

    • Amanda Lord

      I’ve never pre-mixed. THat seemed dumb. But I’ve had good luck with doing a baking soda-water paste, working it into the surface, then adding vinegar. The heat and bubbles formed in the reaction seem to help lift grime. Mixing it together & then putting it on anything… I agree doesn’t make a damn bit of sense.

  12. KarinSDCA

    I have found that static and wrinkles can be avoided by turning the heat down on the dryer and/or reducing the amount of time you dry your laundry. Static can also be eliminated by ditching the non-natural fabrics (or at least removing them from each load before the dryer stage). Air-dry your fleece and microfiber items. They dry pretty quick and last longer that way. Bonus: It gets rid of the static problem in the other laundry.

    I toss laundry in the dryer for a few minutes to remove the “crunch” factor (LOL at the play on words there!) and then line-dry linens in the sunshine and air-dry clothing upstairs in the breeziest room. Sun-dried sheets smell amazing! The benefits are numerous: clothes last longer and look nicer with NO ironing; bedrooms smell nicer and occupants sleep better; towels shed less and last longer and hold their color longer. I use baking soda in white loads or vinegar in dark loads; not both…LOL

    • kylieonwheels

      Another benefit – UV is a great killer of all things germy.

    • Crunchy Betty

      I think I’m going to grab some thick twine or rope tomorrow and start line drying some of my clothes. I’ve put it off, because my “backyard” is visible to 100% of the people walking down the main street in Manitou, and … weird. But maybe I can find a place to hide them.

      You just made it sound SO nice. I must try it!

      • Manda

        Manitou’s weird…they wont think twice about your undies ;)

      • KarinSDCA

        Start with your sheets. The results are simply sensual…all five senses, but especially your sense of smell, will be delighted! It’ll convince you to line-dry other things, too. :)

        FWIW, darks will fade in the sunshine, so I air-dry them inside. Find a breezy room for best results or create it with a ceiling fan and windows…like I do…LOL

        Enjoy! :)

      • Myword5

        In the “old days” women would hang their sheets on the outside of the rotary clothes line, and hang their “unmentionables” (underwear) on the inside lines. The sheets would hide the underwear from view. Me, I keep some nice underwear to hang on the line for show, and hang my real underwear on a rack inside where no one can see!

  13. Thanks for calling our attention to how these things really work (or don’t work). I’d heard of BS+Vin together as a drain cleaner (kind of a drain-o volcano), but I haven’t tried it myself yet. Probably ‘cuz I heard somewhere about their canceling each other out. I use them *separately* for cleaning and/or scrubbing various household surfaces and I almost don’t even need anything else. They’re simple, cheap, and they work.

    • Manda

      That’s another one I do. I love making sink volcanoes. I’m not sure it actually works but placebo effect + volcano makes me happy anyways LOL

      • Anne

        Here’s the thing. The myth is NOT busted it’s just being applied wrong. You have to put the baking soda in first (this softens the water – it makes a big difference if you already have hard water) THEN when the rinse cycle comes on you THEN put in the vinegar. The vinegar will react with the already saturated baking soda clothes and the “fizzing” as they are calling it is the actuall working cleaning agent, once that dissapates then it has lost most of its power. Also, strangly enough if you JUST use vinegar (the baking soda won’t weaken it if mixed) that works too. The vinegar breaks down the soap and makes it easier to rinse off the soap. It’s the soap or detergent that makes clothes age more quickly. Vinegar helps with that : )

    • Manda

      Oh and it does deodorize at least

  14. Its the best way to get soap scum out of the shower, for me anyway. i’m still using a regular, animal fat chemical ridden soap & shampoo for that matter.

  15. carrie

    I stopped using fabric softener before I cared about toxic chemicals, because I never noticed a difference (other than good ol’ Colorado static electricity), and because I learned from the clothing company I worked for at the time that fabric softener can damage fabrics. Plus why spend money on them? Now because of the narsty chemicals (a reality tv show where someone was addicted to eating them stated they contain nerve toxins and carcinogens), I am glad I don’t. Plus, for static all you need is a misting bottle full of water to dissipate the electricity.

  16. annterp

    So it must be the baking soda that cleaned my nasty oven before I poured the vinegar on it?  It sure did make it nice and sparkly.

  17. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! So glad you myth-busted this one.  I have read a number of blog posts by over-eager DIY cleaners who seem to think  there’s something magic in the bubbles when you mix vinegar and baking soda.  I guess they just weren’t paying attention in high school chem class when they clearly taught us that if you combine an acid and a base you wind up with an exothermic reaction (sometimes a dangerous one), water and and salt.

  18. Amie Humphrey Facendola

    I just came across this post and am curious to explore the fabric softener idea further…  (I have a need to “soften” some of my husband’s underwear.)  What I’m wondering is, does hard water result in clothes being “hard”/rough?  If so, the sodium acetate may in fact work as a fabric softener since it might soften the water.  Without  getting into TOO much chemistry, hard water is a measure of Calcium and Magnesium in the water.  Some salts can be used to help remove those minerals and thus “soften” the water.  I am just not sure if sodium acetate is one of those salts and also I am not sure if using softer water will actually make your clothes softer.  Additionally, I have no idea how just vinegar in the wash would help and I am very hesitant to add it my washing machine since it’s acidic and it’s my understanding that this can harm the pipes and hoses.  So, I am left wondering… Does anyone teach a “Chemistry of Cleaning Products” class?

  19. karen

    i use vinegar as a fabric softener, works really well, and no there is no smell…. BS works ok as a cleaner but most of the time i use a mix of essential oils like a thieves blend and i like that really…not too expensive as the eo’s last a really long time

  20. lacy

    Thank you so much for this reminder. I just recently tried a recipe for a carpet spot cleaner using vinegar and baking soda. Needless to say, it did not work as promised. I have linked up to this post here: Do you have any tips for cleaning carpets?

  21. Wendy

    Thank you! Every time I see one of these recipes, I feel sure that the baking soda and vinegar were neutralizing each other, but so many people swear by it that I didn’t feel like arguing.

  22. K8

    I argues!

    Whenever I clean the oven (which is ashamedly only twice a year) I always sprinkle baking powder over the bottom, to soak up greasy dribbles. When cleaning time comes I spray a water/vinegar solution onto the gicky bicarb and force it to bubble up into a big gicky mess. This mess is always very easily wipeable, probably because the bubbles help to lift and disperse all the muck. Oven cleaning takes about fifteen minutes because of that. Sweet. I think the word catalyst should be in there somewhere but I’m not sure where.

    Also! Doing the bicarb/vinegar trick to loosen blocked sinks is great! As long as you form a complete seal over one end of the pipe (i.e. the plughole) the momentum of the gas is usually enough to de-bung.

    Mind you, so would a Mentos and a bottle of coke :)

    • the oxygenation is cited in some things i’ve read as a way of breaking up grime… i get the science but like you my twice yearly oven cleaning is so much more tolerable with BUBBLES

  23. Can i just say when i first ventured into the diy thing 5 yrs ago i fell for all the myths: (maybe a post on myths ?) but now i just use hot water for most of my cleaning> According to what i’ve read it and elbow grease do most of the work anyway (liquid and abrasion) i also use the orange plastic netting my onions and oranges come is as scrubbers. Cheers x

  24. Tracy

    I think the exception is that any application of baking soda and vinegar that causes the chemical reaction to involve the mess you are trying to clean, then it does work better than plain water. I clean the top of my stove by sprinkling on baking soda and spraying it with vinegar. The fizzing loosens the cooked on mess, and the remaining baking soda easily scrubs off any that didn’t come up on its own.

  25. Jamie

    Hi Crunchy Betty, Actually, I tried using vinegar for cleaning not too long ago, and it was amazing! It cleaned better than bleach for counter stains, it wiped up extrememly easy, and even in the bathroom, it worked beautifully to make things white! (All without the chemical issue of bleach).Now, the way to use the baking soda wasn’t just to mix them together… the way to use it is to first sprinkle baking soda onto places that you need an abrasive cleanser, and scrub, then spray the vinegar to neutralize the baking soda, so you can wipe it up easily. Or, if you have a particularly grimy place, you can use the volcano effect (use baking soda sprinkled liberally, and then spray it right away with vinegar – leave it sitting until all done bubbling, then wipe up – and Voila! No scrub necessary! This worked best for the oven, sink drains, and the bathtub rings. Hope this helps… I became a true convert – it really was wayyyyy better than I expected it to be when I used it!

  26. Pheobe

    Most of the recipes I saw use both, but NOT simultaneously! The neutralization happened toward the end when we were about to touch the finish products with our bare hands.

  27. embalyst

    (from Wikipedia)


    Sodium acetate is used in the textile industry to neutralize sulfuric acid waste streams, and as a photoresist while using aniline dyes. It is also a pickling agent in chrome tanning, and it helps to retard vulcanization of chloroprene in synthetic rubber production. In processing cotton for disposable cotton pads, sodium acetate is used to eliminate the buildup of static electricity.

  28. Jeanette Parks

    I knew they neutralized each other, and thus the only time I like baking soda / vinegar combo is for two things: I first scrub my stainless steel sinks with baking soda & water until they’re clean and then rinse with splashes of vinegar– because I find that the fizzing action gets into the brushed texture of the steel and helps shine it, and then I rinse with hot water afterwards. OR for declogging a slow drain– I pour in a large amount of baking soda into the drain, glug some vinegar on top, watch it fizz, and then pour very hot (almost boiling) water afterwards to help degrease… But otherwise, it’s just a complete waste of time to mix baking soda and vinegar. Vinegar on its own is great, esp. mixed with lemon juice and dish-soap to clean soap scum, and baking soda paste with water is also great. But ne’er the twain shall meet.

  29. tara henderson

    I’ve just discovered your blog (after searching ‘natural baking soda’) and read three posts already. I clean with baking soda and vinegar almost exclusively, but always separately. The only thing I’ve ever combined them for is cleaning the stains in sauce pans. I’ll put in baking soda, then pour in vinegar to cover the stain, and let soak a few hours. Maybe water would bring about the same loosening of stains, but I like the bubbles. ;-)

    I’ve been thinking about making homemade deodorant soon, and one of your recipes is now in the running for my first attempt.

    Thanks for sharing on these topics! The world needs people like you to inform others!!

  30. Stacie

    First, you’re quite witty – and I assure you, I’m not one easily impressed, so kudos to you – I will read on.

    Second, thank you thank you! I came online to search out this exact question and you’ve answered in exactly the appropriate way (= NOT SO MUCH)!

    I’ve been doing DIY soap and laundry detergents for years and years (with zero vinegar in the recipes). I find the very idea of marketing revolting, so I love sticking it to the Man by making my own and savings tons of money and sacrificing very little in the way of time or convenience. What a pleasure doing things in a homemade, old fashioned kind of way that allows me to be totally in control and a slave to no name brand!

    Anyway, I’ve recently been using more and more vinegar, for other things, other recipes and been kind of impressed by it. Overall, though, I have not missed the vinegar in my life, I can tell you, because I find the smell almost intolerable. Nonetheless, I’m woofing it down twice a day because it helps with congestion, so I’ve been curious.

    I came across a dishwashing detergent recipe that I wanted to try, using baking soda and them a little lemon juice (acidic) in a lot of water and melted soap. It’s suds up some but I haven’t found it so absolutely fabulous in the cleaning dept. as was promised. That made me question the reaction I saw in the pot as I was mixing them all and what was really going on with these baking soda + vinegar recipes….

    I have long used baking soda and vinegar as a drain cleaner, and I understand fully how that reaction works to fizz away gunk. But once the reaction happens, it’s pretty inert and useless after. So, I surmised that’s what happened with this dishwashing recipe, too. Now, I’ve got five big bottles of it and I have to use about 1/2 cup every sinkful to get it to work. Waste of time, ingredients, and I won’t be using that recipe again.

    Though, I wonder if baking soda alone would work better in the water, maybe with the melted soap. Perhaps it would make a gel liquid? Dunno. Though, I’m still on the lookout for a good dishwashing recipe, as I could use Washing Soda and/or Borax, but they tend to irritate my hands if left in the water after a while…..


  31. Tobiyah

    Ok, so this actually makes sense, but I thought the reason baking soda and vinegar worked so well together was because the acidic vinegar cuts through gunk and the baking soda acted as a little grit to help scrub; kind of like soft scrub. Does the reaction completely break down the little bits of baking soda? And is there any way to add ingredients so they’re less likely to react. Like perhaps adding ammonia & essential oils dilutes the vinegar enough to keep the baking soda’s integrity? Thanks so much for solving this conundrum!

  32. Fantastic post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic?
    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
    Many thanks!

  33. ccc

    I just use a few tables spoons of straight vinegar in the rinse cycle of my front loader washing machine and the clothes seems to be softer due to helping any soap residue rinse more completely. I’ve read and found after 40 years of housekeeping that the stiffness in garments is from using too much soap in the washing machine and/or not sufficient rinsing. the SOAP can be the culprit! I’ve never used fabric softeners, ever, but find this simple and cost effective trick to work for me. Added benefit is that the inner drum of the front loader never has that musty smell they are notorious for developing. Never took chemistry; just been a common sense gal.

  34. I learned that one on my scalp in the early days of no ‘poo, unfortunately. Oh, dear.

  35. The same goes for mixing vinegar or lemon juice with other alkali such as borax or ammonia — it won’t fizz, but if the way it’s supposed to work is by the acidity of an acid or the alkalinity of a base, they’ll be at cross purposes.

  36. If you’re keeping track, count soap (actual soap soap) as a base too. I’ve seen recipes calling for mixing soap with vinegar, and they produce fatty acid.

  37. Thhis page truly has all the information I needed concerning tis subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  38. nan

    man i wish i’d read this before i wasted a bunch of vinegar, the last of my baking soda and some salt. all cheap, but still… i’ve spent the last 20 minutes trying to get the smeary, cloudy, horrible mess i made off my huge bathroom mirror. is there ANYTHING ‘natural’ and cheap that i can use for mirrors and glass that actually works? thanks. great site.

  39. Hi there Dear, are you in fact vvisiting this site daily, if so after that you will definitely obtain good experience.

  40. I was pretty pleased to discover this web site. I need to to thank
    yoou for ones time for this fantastic read!! I definitely savored every bbit of it and I
    have you bookmarked to look at new things oon yojr blog.

  41. I have read soo many content on the topic oof tthe blogger lovers but this piece of writing is truly
    a fastidious paragraph, keep it up.

  42. You actually make it seem so easy togethr with your presentation but
    I tto find this topic to bee actually something which I think
    I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and vefy broad for me.
    I am looking ahdad for your next publish, I will try to get the cling
    of it!

  43. Hi, after reading this amazing article i am too happy to share my know-how here with colleagues.

  44. So I accidentally drank the residue of soda and water in a cup of water…don’t ask me how but it was the middle of the night and was going for a cup of water. I realized it after I had gulped it down and could taste something weird, but I was too sleepy to do anything about it except spit out the last remaining mouthful. I didn’t die…but was a little worried because that was washing soda, not made for baking, but I only have a headache and had to poo several times. In short I don’t recommend this to drink, even if it is supposed to be mostly water. =-)
