Check baking soda before you start your recipe. You will save yourself time and  probably heartache if the results are negative. You work hard to find time to bake from scratch. Thereofe, why risk the success of your homemade treats? It’s very simple and super fast to check.

Furthermore, there are only three items necessary to check your baking soda: Baking soda; lime or lemon juice or vinegar; and a clean glass. That’s it!  So what is holding you back? The entire process will take you less than 3 minutes, including gathering the items. Therefore, testing your baking soda only makes sense, right?

Test baking soda with only three ingrediets

Next, here is how to test your baking soda.

First, add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to the glass. Squeeze about a teaspoon of juice or vinegar over the top. You should see an immediate fizz reaction if the baking soda is still viable.
It takes a little work to do this, but save your ingredients and efforts by making sure to test every time!
