Baking Soda Panacea

When it's my turn to make pancakes I reach for the trusted ingredients including flour, eggs, oil...and baking soda.

Apparently people can't get enough of sodium bicarbonate, including searches on the Internet. Good's article "Seven Surprising Uses for Baking Soda" still gets regular hits months after its posting.

"Not that we're complaining, of course. The article itself isn't bad at all: Servicey, smart, and nicely illustrated—it's a piece of which we're still quite proud. Nevertheless, we just can't seem to figure out why, every single day, it still gets so much traffic. Despite being nine months old, the baking soda story kills, and it's showing no signs of slowing."

Included in their list is: brushing teeth, washing the face, creating a deodorant, healing acne, cleaning hair, soothing the stomach, and soaking the skin.
