Scouting Tips
Thanks to Scoutmaster Jerry.

Pack a Box of Baking Soda When Going Camping

You can use it if a bee stings you. Make a paste of baking soda and water and apply to the affected area to soothe it. To help put out a dying campfire, toss a handful of baking soda at the base of the fire. To get rid of smells in your sleeping bag, pour some baking soda inside to absorb odors.
