Baking soda is a product that most people (most!) will have in their homes. If you’re not the baking sort then it can be purchased for a few dollars from any store that sells baking supplies. Baking soda falls into that beautiful area that so many natural acne scar treatments fall into. It’s cheap, easy to get and makes a difference if you use it properly.
CARPET. I have two toddlers and two dogs, so my carpets are very familiar with baking soda. To neutralize odors, simply sprinkle baking soda on your carpets at least 30 minutes prior to vacuuming.
Here’s something you need to bear in mind. Even if you are anxious to get rid of your acne, start out slowly. Baking soda can irritate your skin if it’s too sensitive. Start with once or twice a week and see how your skin reacts to it. Later on you can use it more often. You can also mix baking powder with a bit of neem oil or tea tree oil to make it more potent. Both of these oils are anti-bacterial and anti-septic.
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.
Prepare the following ingredients: 1 cup of sliced fresh strawberries, 2 tablespoons of raw sliced almonds, 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt, 1 tablespoon of organic honey, one egg white, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and a food processor. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor wait until texture becomes smooth. Put the contents in a bowl or any container with lid. Apply the mixture on the face and wait for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse it off using lukewarm water. You can apply a regular facial moisturizer after the procedure.
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.
Put out a fire. Kitchen fires are the most common fires in the house. Baking soda deprives a fire of oxygen. It is a great idea to have a tub of it handy in your kitchen, the place for greatest fire hazard. In case of fire, throw handfuls of it at the base of the fire to extinguish it. Take precautions and call the professionals so that they can make sure the fire is properly extinguished.
Use non-alkalized cocoa powder or the Dutch process cocoa powder but not the both of them in one instance. You need to use the powder which is recommended for your kind of recipe or else you won’t be able to achieve the results that you need.
