Here's how it works.Sorry MBe, haven't been on topics for awhile. 1 tablespoonn baking soda to 1 gallon of water. You need to put it in a sprayer. Shake it up so baking soda gets mixed well.
I don't know why it works. I just know that it does. I use to buy fungicides at store, cost a lot of money and its toxic to bee's and us.
I wish more people would try this and let me know how it turned out.
Baking soda, aka sodium bicarbonate, helps regulate pHkeeping a substance neither too acidic nor too alkaline. When baking soda comes in contact with either an acidic or an alkaline substance, its natural effect is to neutralize that pH. Beyond that, baking soda has the ability to retard further changes in the pH balance, known as buffering. This dual capability of neutralizing and buffering allows baking soda to do things such as neutralize acidic odors (like in the refrigerator) as well as maintain neutral pH (like in your laundry water, which helps boost your detergents power). Its a simple reaction, but one that has far-reaching effects for a number of cleaning and deodorizing tasks.
