What is Baking Soda Blasting?
Baking Soda blasting is the latest technology to safely strip paint and clean most any surface. The soda blaster uses compressed air to deliver sodium bicarbonate based media (baking soda) onto the surface to be cleaned. While at the outset this seems similar to sandblasting, all similarities quickly fade once you understand the process. Sand is a hard, heavy material that can wreak havoc on many substrates. It will pit and warp metal, tear up rubber & plastic and etch glass. Soda blasting has none of that. A properly formulated soda blasting media is made of Sodium Bicarbonate that is manufactured to be in a consistent, large crystal size. When it strikes the material you are soda blasting the crystal explodes outward and the explosion is the force that strips your target of grease, paint, light or new surface rust, mold, dirt, whatever it is you are removing.
It is difficult to tell someone about soda blasting without using the phrase “the best part.” Why? Because there are so many advantages to soda blasting they are all “the best part!” You want to say:
- The Best Part about soda blasting is it doesn’t harm the substrate. No metal warping, no flash rust, no more masking of glass, chrome and rubber! What a time saver!
- The Best Part about soda blasting is the easy clean up, the media is water-soluble.
- The Best Part about soda blasting is how it is environmentally friendly! It’s baking soda! Non-toxic, non-flammable, non-hazardous, FDA approved and you can make biscuits with it!
- The Best Part about soda blasting is how versatile it is! It can be used in so many applications!

Baking Soda Blasting Facts
In the past, the only way you could remove paint or some other unsightly material from a contaminated surface, was to either chip it off, sand blast it, use harsh chemicals, sand it until your arm fell off or your equipment failed.
