Test what’s leaching from your pot: The Alkaline Baking soda Test

The Baking Soda test is an easy to do home-test to check the toxicity and leaching of metals and/or chemicals

You can do the Alkaline Baking soda Test right at home to check your pots/pans:

—Boil 2-3 cups of water in any pot, when it starts boiling add 2 tsp of baking soda   Boil for 5 more mins. Turn stove off.

—Wait till cool enough to taste then taste the water (take a sip).  If you taste metals, that’s what you’re eating! If water has a rubber/paint taste it’s the chemicals from enamel/glaze.

As a control, stir 2 tsp of baking soda to 1 glass of water take a sip — you will taste just the baking soda.  When done in MEC, taste of water will be similar to taste of water in glass cup.
