Baking soda can be used for a number of purposes. For example, cleaning, brushing teeth, and cooking. Christina Pennie, a resident of Fayetteville, North Carolina uses baking soda to cure the common cold or sinus infection.
“My granddaughter was sick one day and I just had to think fast. I researched a few home remedies, and thats when I went in my kitchen and combined some things and it knocked the cold right out of her,” Christina said.
The vapor rub disks that Christina makes are made of cornstarch, vicks vapor rub, water, and baking soda. The recipe is as follows;
1 Cup of baking soda
1/2 Cup of cornstarch
1/3-1/2 Cup of water
2-3 Teaspoons of vicks vapor rub
To make the vapor disks, melt vicks vapor rub in heated water. Then add the baking soda and cornstarch. Mix this together. Next, line a muffin tin with paper cups and fill the cups halfway with the mixture. Let them sit overnight to dry. Remove the disks thw next and store them in an airtight container until use.
