So, I almost bought this, in my head picturing the 4 lb box. Then I saw a complaint by another reviewer about how very small the box is and realized that I was making the same mistake as that Amazon reviewer! Thanks, helpful stranger!! I cancelled the order: The price was way, way too high for the same regular sized box that's available for much cheaper in the departments stores around here.
But, I did later buy a bunch of these little 1 lb boxes in bulk elsewhere online: price per box of baking soda less than $0.90 and with free shipping to boot. It is worth Googling for a better price, no matter what size you may want. Why buy a bunch of little boxes, you may ask? Well for me it's because a box of this does wonders for my gym locker, and a larger box would not have fit. I also like to keep a little box in the kitchen for dishes in need of hand washing that have an unpleasant odor for some reason & this size fits well in the kitchen cabinet.
There are many reasons a little box may be better than a large one, but whatever size box (or bag) of baking soda you are looking for and whether you plan on making a trip to your local store or ordering it online WHY on Earth pay 5-to-7 times more for the stuff than necessary??? There are **lots** of good online sales sites out there, including Amazon of course.
Why am I rating baking soda? Don't know! Why did I order this instead of buying it from the neighborhood Safeway? Because I am at a military base in Afghanistan with no place to buy anything like this. What do I used it for? Cleaning and deodorizing. Enough words yet? Let's see
I found out a new use for this product. I used this with a combination of water to create a paste to bring back life to my old electronics that had battery mercury damage. It neutralized the battery acid and brought back several of my remotes back to working order. This really is an all around product.
