Wow! Talk about misinformation.
Soda blasting removes mold, it does not kill it. The surface
must them be treated with a antimicrobial silicon polymer.
Soda blasting is completely safe. Neutral ph. Part of the
body's natural buffering system. The caustic nature of
soda???Soda bicarbonate is NaCHO3. You use it on your
battery terminals to prevent corrosion. You can inhale it.
And how about the guy that says you use BAKING POWER not
baking soda??? Baking powder is baking soda plus one or more
acid salts and some cornstarch to absorb moisture so a
reaction does not take place before a liquid is added to the
batter. Baking soda will cause some reddening of cocoa
powder , hence the name Devil's Food cake.
get out of the law books and open a chemistry book.
