When I try solving baking soda (bicarbonate) in water, it doesn’t work. I use the exact measurments (1 part bicarbonate, 3 parts water) and sometimes more bicarbonate but it just won’t solve and form a paste. It’s just a little bit of wet powder in the bottom and lots of water over it.
Am I doing it wrong? Am I not using actual bicarbonate, even though the package says it is? Should I use actual baking soda (which to my knowledge is only bicarbonate mixed with a few other ingrediences) rather than pure bicarbonate?
