National Bicarbonate of Soda Day
There are many names for it, including Baking Soda and Sodium Bicarbonate. I prefer my Bicarbonate of Soda because you can use more words to express your thoughts. It has become an integral part of society. It is used for everything, from cleaning the worst floors to baking fluffy cakes and cookies. National Bicarbonate of Soda Day reminds people how important this little salt is to our lives. Nearly all of us have had our first experience with making volcanoes in science class. You can make a volcano out of this grainy white powder by adding some food coloring and lemon juice. This is not the most popular use of the substance. It has also found its way into many other things. It is not the most common use of the substance. It has been used in many industries including food, medicine, and personal hygiene. This simple discovery has proven to be a very useful substance. You can celebrate it by building the first Baking soda volcano since High School. You can have some fun with it, by mixing some vinegar and putting it in a cup. See if you have any bicarbonate soda in your daily life. National Bicarbonate of Soda Day aims to raise awareness about the effects of this tiny little ingredient. It’s almost certain that toothpaste contains it, but household cleaners also contain it, so we bet you already have some!
