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.
The first thing to consider is size. The difference in the size of the baking pan determines the volume of batter the pan can hold. It is important that you use the right size of pan for the dish you are preparing. For example, if you use a pan that is too big, it will cause the depth of the batter to be shallower. This, in turn, causes the batter to bake more quickly, and will throw off the cooking times, and even the consistency of the end result.

It can’t be used so well for wasp stings. at least not for first aid. As wasp stings are alkaline, the best first aid treatment for a wasp sting is vinegar. However, baking soda can be used to treat bee stings, and can relieve the itching left after insect stings and bites of all kinds.
Baking time is very important. You do not want to under-bake. However, you also do not want to over-bake. I usually set my timer, to check whatever I’m baking, for 5 to 7 minutes before the time it should be done. Make sure it also looks done.
