Extinguishing Kitchen Fires

Every year thousands of people have kitchen fires. These fires can become very dangerous and can get out of control quickly. A fire extinguisher is very helpful in situations such as this, but a simple remedy can save your home.


Keep a large box of baking soda near your stove. Should a fire occur, you just throw baking soda on it and keep it contained until you can get more help. Usually the baking soda will put out the fire immediately and doesn't cost much for such a simple solution.

So the next time you go to the store, buy a box of baking soda and keep it within reach should you need it.

Great idea! You can use baking soda for cleaning as well and can get a far cheaper supply of it from cattle food stores: just ask for cattle grade baking soda; it's not edible! But is fantastic to keep in a canister near the stove, and also to use just like you do "comet" or other cleaners; far cheaper, and no chemicals to harm you!


Do buy baking soda without aluminum in it; available and only get a small amount to use from bulk; that way it will be fresh for you to use! Aluminum is added into the boxed kind sold in the usa and other countries along with other additives; which in excessive amounts in the body, causes alzheimers !

Be sure to keep the box already open. In case of a fire you don't want to have to fumble opening a box. Also a fire can get very big very fast, so more than 1 box of b soda should be handy. Dump several boxes into a coffee can and a better place to keep it would be on an adjacent counter as flames may make you unable to reach the stove.
