Grease Fire and Baking Soda

3/7/2016 (Permalink)

Have a grease fire in your kitchen?  NEVER use water! Use a fire extinguisher or baking soda.  Watch the Today Show's video link for more information.


 "Baking soda is chemically known as sodium bicarbonate. When heated to a high temperature, the chemical properties of this salt make it produce lots of carbon dioxide and remove oxygen. This then totally reduces the amount of oxygen in the surrounding atmosphere and puts the fire out. This reaction also produces a small quantity of water and sodium carbonate as by products."  (Source http://humantouchofchemistry.com/why-does-baking-soda-extinguish-fires.htm)
