Easy Storage Solution for Baking Soda and Other Uses!
Are you looking for The Best Way To Store Natural Baking Soda? I am so excited to share this simple solution. It involves just a few items and your cabinet will look a little bit neater.
Have you ever had one of those productive moments, where you felt like you accomplished more in 15 minutes than over the course of 3 days?
For myself, it is tough to be productive as the kids keep me pretty busy. Although, I am thrilled to say that after supper last night I had an EPIPHANY!
The thought came mainly over my and tiredness of staring at an open box of baking soda in my cabinet. REALLY! It is my only “powdery white substance” that is not in a proper container and labeled. Yes, yes, I do suffer from a little OCD.
Baking soda often comes in a box that isn’t resealable. It is tempting to open the box at the top like it says and leave it in your pantry, but you’ll notice that one of the suggested uses for baking soda is to place an open box in the fridge to let it absorb off odors and flavors. Oy! I don’t want my baking soda absorbing any orders for baking.
For this reason, I recommend storing the baking soda in a separate airtight container.
I then started pulling out all my containers and really stumbled upon this idea. We used grated parmesan cheese as part of our supper tonight. We honestly used every last little crumble on our spaghetti and completely emptied the container.
Talk about PERFECT timing.
I took the top of the parmesan cheese container and married it to one of my large mason jars and GUESS what?? They are in love and so am I. The fit is just perfect.
My husband started to tease me. I immediately ran to get the camera out. “Thinking this is the best idea I have had in a long time!!” He even said, “I don’t think it is blog-worthy”. Well, SIR, I do and I hope you do too.
I probably could have used the plastic container from the original bottle of parmesan cheese, but after hearing so much about plastics and leaching toxins, I just went with glass. Plus, it is prettier. Sure the plastic is at the top, but hey I tried my best. My baking soda is no longer absorbing odors from the air.
And….as you can imagine (wheels turning) that you can use this fancy trick for storing other ingredients. Now, I would love to know what you are thinking. What will you be storing using this newfound hack?
