Just picked up a copy of Haley's Cleaning Hints at the library, and expected
to be able to look this up in the index. Anyone know what he is talking
about when he mentions "water softener"? Also called "washing soda." No
such thing on my grocery store shelves... I somehow thought this was a
code-word for baking soda. What is he talking about?
Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. Washing soda is sodium carbonate. I
believe that Arm and Hammer sells both but I have never looked for washing
soda. Interestingly, some people object to an "off taste" that they detect
in baked goods. This is the result of an incomplete reaction of baking soda
that turns into washing soda. This is a good reason no to use excessive
amounts of baking soda in recipes.
A simple H+ molecule?
I'm sure you drink a little H2O every day!
And the air you breath is O2 right!
Therefore, a little oxygenated water should be good for you;)
However, I think I would lay off the H2O2 if I were you!
That little oxygen molecule just turned your water to poison.
H2O2 is Hydrogen Peroxide.
I used hydrogen peroxide as a mouth wash following surgery at the
recommendation of the dentist. Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful
oxidizer. If hydrogen peroxide is swallowed seek medical attention
