You will be creating great bread and eliminating a significant amount of guess work.

Although my twin toddlers have yet to have a serious bout of diaper rash (knock on wood), I sometimes add a few teaspoons to their bathwater if I notice any irritation on their buttocks or around their legs from diapers that were fastened a little too tightly.

If you have a chocolate brownie recipe or a chocolate cake recipe that you might use frequently, consider purchasing a container of unsweetened cocoa to keep on hand.

Rubbing deli meat all over my knee caps?” But trust me; this is not some far-out-there-patchouli-oil-drenched sort of remedy. This is science. Baking soda is a component of the mineral natron and is found in many natural mineral springs. It is weakly alkaline which means it’s quite handy at neutralizing those things it comes in contact with. For instance: your skin, hair, and mouth. This neutralization process does wonders for many common beauty complaints.
Give these two treatments a fair shot. That means at least 5 consecutive days of trying this out. You’ll body will need to acclimate itself to the baking soda before feeling the best results.
