Why should you stir baking soda before using it?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Do you mean to stir the baking soda in the box before you do anything with it? I had never heard that so I sent the question to Arm & Hammer. If anyone knows, they should!
I found this tip on the Arm & Hammer website and it is possibly why you asked the first question!
- Anywhere that moisture is a problem, such as cupboards under sinks, place a bowl of baking soda to help control humidity. You'll need to occasionally stir the powder for maximum effective life.
If it has been sitting on the shelf long, absorbing moisture, that would be a good reason to stir it!
