3. To Put Out Fires
As the above image depicts, baking soda is handy to have on hand for kitchen fires, and it can also be just as helpful at putting out a fire that you have built in the woods. In a nutshell, the baking soda will rob the fire of its oxygen source, and this enables you to extinguish the flames without needing to waste water. If you have a grill, you can also use baking soda to keep its surface clean.
