WI can i be nosey and ask why he needs to know, as i cant think of a word that would verbally describe it, i dont think its common to Egypt, so hope Z's written translation does the trick. :)

If you copy the Arabic text and paste it into google images it does bring up images loads of tins of Bicarb' ;)

I'm not to good at phonetic, I can write it down for my own benefit, but it would be complete gobbldegook to anyone else... :oops:

Not so fast Christine, we still dont know what it's needed for. ;)


Cleaning ? Baking ? Medical conditions ?

Here's some medical uses I found on t' interweb.


For age spots:
A paste of bicarbonate of soda mixed with hydrogen peroxide in equal proportions can lighten age spots when used as a pack on affected areas.

For itching, hives, bites and stings:
Apply a paste of sodium bicarbonate mixed with water to ease pain and itching.

For foot and body odor:
Bicarbonate of soda can neutralize bacteria that cause foot and body odor. A paste of the compound with water can help clear athlete’s foot.

For foot pain and splinters:
A foot soak made of 150gms of bicarbonate of soda with equal quantities of Epsom salts can reduce soreness and minimize nerve pain.

For oral problems:
Oral bacteria produce acids that can corrode the teeth enamel. A bicarb rinse several times a day or before going to bed can protect the teeth from untimely decay.

For heartburn:
Heartburn is caused when digestive acids make their way up to the tract. A tablet or teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate along with the few drops of lemon juice acts as an antacid and provides instant relief. The same works for dispelling painful wind in case of indigestion
and flatulence.

For nappy rash:
Bicarbonate of soda added to a baby’s bathwater soothes the irritated skin and promotes faster healing.

For sore throats and mouth ulcers:
Acid producing bacteria can cause lot of pain and agony. Add a teaspoonful of sodium bicarbonate in a glass of water and gargle every four hours to neutralize the acids.
I prefer Rowntree's fruit pastels for a sore throat, trust me it works...

For sunburn and heat rash:
Bicarb can ‘soften’ bath water which makes for a comforting soak for agitated skin.

For UTIs:
Drinking a solution of bicarb can ease the burning sensation while urinating by balancing the acids in the bladder. Let's not go there though... :oops:

Thanks for that list Z, I'm keeping a copy for reference!

You can also use it, mixed with salt, a teaspoon of each to a litre of water, to rinse out the nasal cavity if you suffer from sinusitis. Take a look at this article - its the picture :snig: and the comment about baby shampoo and bubbles out of the nose

Of course you can C! You see my problem explaining what it is if you don't have any to show. I need it, not my hubby. I needed the name so I can ask for it when shopping. I will use it to clean the apartment, and for heartburn if necessary. Cheap and effective. :)

Ah right got you WI, the list is good isnt it thanks for that Z, will keep a copy, but already use it when in Egypt for a friend who suffers from ulcers , and making acid is very painfull for him, so we use bi-carb on him, but i normally would bring a tub with me for that, or the bi-carb tabs.
