Baking soda also known as sodium bicarbonate,
is a white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder.
Sodium bicarbonate is used for removing paint and corrosion.
The process is particularly suitable for cleaning aluminium panels, which can be distorted by other types of abrasives.
We recommend a paste made from baking soda with minimal water as a gentle scouring powder.
Extremely useful in removing surface rust, as the rust forms a water-soluble compound when in a concentrated alkaline solution.
It is important that cold water is used and not hot water, because hot water can corrode steel.
It can be added to washing machines as a replacement for water softener and to remove odours from clothes.
Also effective in removing heavy tea and coffee stains from cups when diluted with warm water.
Baking soda can be used as a multipurpose odour remover.
