  1. I've never seen a baking soda X_X. I like its multi-purpose attributes.


    1. I bet you have, it's also called baking powder or bicarbonate of soda. Mostly sold in shops that sells baking materials

  2. Thanks for sharing esp the teeth whitening bit. Mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with half a teaspoon of water and brush your teeth for no more than one minute because baking soda is abrasive to teeth

    2. Some add lemon juice. Thanks our nurse *grinning *
