Kitchen baking soda is the best fungicide on earth

Christina Huh Nov 25, 2010

Baking soda, called bicarbonate, is non-toxic for the home and garden.  A teaspoon added to two cups of warm water and used as a spray will keep all fungi away.  This works for flowers, for trees, for everywhere.  And it’s cheap.
