Sodium Bicarbonate or 'Baking Soda' as it is commonly known has literally hundreds of uses, most of which have very little to do with baking! In bath bombs, Baking Soda is not only partially responsible for the fizzing effect but also when added to bath water it acts to soften the skin.
It is a great ingredient for house cleaning products.
Is your baking soda aluminium free?
We get asked this a lot and the answer is yes, because actually all sodium bicarbonate or baking soda is aluminium free.
The confusion arises because some baking powder contains aluminium. Although baking powder does contain sodium bicarbonate, the aluminium component comes from added aluminium salts - not the sodium bicarbonate.
