I am confused by baking soda, is it the same stuff they put into dough and cakes?


I think that's usually baking powder.

So if you'd prefer your games to smell minty fresh™ then chest rub is the way to go. :D


interesting, perhaps vix is what you're talking about. Can you rub it all over the game?

Nah, sodium bicarbonate aka baking soda, is also often used in pastries. It's also pretty much the world's best toothpaste.

This is a little off topic, but if a car or room has a disturbing odor to it, leave a pot of piping hot coffee in it every so often. It might end up smelling like a doctor's office, but it works.

I use it for mouthwash. It also works on canker sores if you mix it with water into a paste and put it on.

To get my car to smell good I will take a small cup of listerine and put a paper towel into it to absorb the listerine, then leave it in my car. I use the purple kind which smells extra good and is filled with food coloring and fake sugar, making it useless as actual mouthwash.

It tastes awful, but as a mild abrasive it has hundreds of purposes. Kind of weird that it tastes awful, but eliminates bad breath. How does that work?

I don't think it really tastes awful. Just kind of salty. It being such a strong base makes everything else taste really sour and acidic right after. Just rinsing my mouth out with water from the faucet afterwards tastes really off.

Buy a new copy of whatever it is. This all sounds like way too much effort...
 (FC, AVFC, NES, SFC x2, SNES, N64, GC x2, Wii x2)*(G&W x7, GB, GBpocket, GBASP, DS-L x2)
(GEN, SS x3, DC x3)*(PCE-Duo)*(Xbox:500GB)*(NGCDZ, NGPC)*(PS1, PStwo, PS3:160GB, PSP.3K)
