We all know what baking soda is. We use it to fluff up our cakes and muffins, but also, we use it to clean around the house. But did you know that baking soda is actually quite an ancient chemical? Egyptians used it as early as 3500BC to embalm mummies and as a cleaning agent. However, it was not until 1843 that chemist Alfred Bird came up with the solution of baking soda. Just imagine how many years it took to find a proper name for an ingredient that has been in use for centuries. Another fact is that Alfred is well known for inventing a series of food products. One of the most famous ones is egg-free custard. Thank you, Alfred! 😊

It seems like this can be used for literally everything in modern days. It cleans, deodorizes, exfoliates, kills mould, (not humans), and polishes. I mean, how not to love this soda, right.

Ok, so now I will share with you a few interesting facts that not all of us might be aware of.

There are different names for it, such as bread soda, cooking soda, and bicarbonate of soda.

To have some fun, combine equal parts of baking soda and water to make a paste. Now take a toothpick and start writing on a piece of paper with the mixture. When dry, hold the paper close to a light bulb or a lighter (parental supervision required!); your writing will appear in brown colour. Such fun, right!
