Baking soda is a popular all natural cleaning ingredient that more and more people are learning about. Of course, it's been around for ever, but people are just starting to realize the benefits it has when it comes to its all natural cleaning capabilities. Baking soda is inexpensive to buy, and its one of those things you probably always have in the cabinet. You can use it for baking, recipes, and cleaning. Baking soda has long been a popular thing to place in your refrigerator as it picks up odors that you don't want lingering around in your fridge. Sodium bicarbonate also known as baking soda is a chemical compound. It is salt that is composed of sodium ions and bicarbonate ions. Baking soda is a white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slightly salty, alkaline taste that resembles that of washing soda. You can find sodium bicarbonate used as far back as the ancient Egyptians who used natural deposits of natron, which was a mixture that consisted mostly of sodium carbonate decahydrate, and sodium bicarbonate. The natron was ground up, solvated, and then used as paint for hieroglyphics. Baking soda is not recommended for cleaning aluminum objects, as it attacks the thin unreactive protective oxide layer of this otherwise very reactive metal. Baking soda does, however, work for cleaning tarnished silver when the silver is in contact with a piece of aluminum foil.
