Baking Soda Really Does What Grandma Says

The idea of being self employed may be appealing but you may be second guessing your ability on how to start your own small business from home. However, many people have found their niche on how to run a small business from home including baking.

For an easy, at-home mouth wash, just put a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. Swish, spit, and any trace of that morning breath will be gone. It neutralizes odor versus just covering it up, so you can be worry free all day. When brushing your teeth, dip your toothpaste in some baking soda for a little more oomph in your cleaning power. Feeling even more inspired by the power of baking soda? Make your own toothpaste with a paste mixture of baking soda and 3% hydrogen peroxide for extra pearly whites.

Leavening – While there are some yeast leavened cakes,they are not that common so I will stick with baking powder and baking soda. Too much can cause your cake to fall or crumble or fall apart so follow the recipe carefully. If you omit one egg in a recipe increase the amount of baking powder by 1/2 teaspoon. If using baking soda you should use an acid such as buttermilk or cream using 1/2 baking soda for each cup.

Butter,margarine,shortening or oil. Butter traditionally is the choice for cakes. You can measure solid fats by covering them with cold water. For example, if your recipe calls for 1/2 cup fat, fill a measuring cup with 1/2 cup of water and add the fat until the water reaches 1 cup. Oil provides a more moist cake in many cases but be sure to use a vegetable oil. Margarine is usually whipped and contains more water and air so it may not always provide the best results, however, if using margarine you can usually use a stick variety. I suggest avoiding the kind in tubs.

Baking is a part of so many people’s holiday traditions. It got me thinking on why baking? Why now? After all, most local grocery stores and super centers have bakeries that produce delicious goods for a decent price. However no store can make prettier sugar cookies than little kids. And no one does fudge and date pudding like my Grandma.

Sadly, carpet odor is one of the most common carpet cleaning problems that are suffered by homeowners. It can arise because of improper cleaning of the carpet or it can also be because of germs and bacteria that can find its way on your carpet thus causing the bad carpet odor.

Baking homemade food has increasingly more health benefits than buying processed baked goods from the store. Items bought from the bakery at the grocery store have preservatives to keep things fresh that you don’t have to use at home.

Once you have done this, you will notice that there will no longer be any bad odor on your carpet. This technique is an easy and affordable way for you to solve any unpleasant odor problems on your carpet quickly and effectively.
