Baking Soda and Good Common Sense

Directions:
Directions:
Keep a large, opened box of baking soda near the kitchen stove to sprinkle on or toss by handfuls at the base of any flare-ups. If it is an electrical fire, Water won't stop it. If it's a grease fire, water will spread it. Baking soda is appropriate to use for either type of fire.
If food is salvageable, just rinse off the baking soda. It will not hurt the food that was cooking.

If you are not comfortable with an open box, keep baking soda in an attractive jar, canister, or shaker on the counter near the kitchen stove or oven so it's always handy for extinguishing grease fires.

WARNING: Baking soda should be used only to extinguish SMALL fires. Don't use it on fires in deep fat fryers, as the grease could spatter and spread the flames. It is not a substitute for a commercial fire extinguisher---or for a call to the fire department.
