SODIUM BICARBONATE - also known as BAKING SODA, VICHY SALT, SODIUM HYDROCARBONATE, ACID MONOSODIUM SALT, SODIUM ACID CARBONATE, and NaHCO3. Manufactured using sea salt, ammonia, and carbonic acid. Also found in nature, it is biodegradable and environment friendly. Commonly referred to as a "buffer" because if stabilises a solutions's pH level at around 8.1. This characteristic is why Sodium Bicarbonate is such a common ingredient in many applications to diminish acidity, prevent corrosion, and neutralise acidic substances (such as venom of insects such as mosquitoes). Water's temporary hardness determined by the quantity of calcium and magnesium ions present. Water hardness can be noticed easily by testing its capacity to rinse soap and cook vegetables. Lime deposits are avoided when Sodium Bicarbonate is dissolved in the water, the calcium ions do not separate into lime (calcium carbonate) thus reducing the use of soap and detergent. Neutralises and absorbs odors rather than masking an odor.
