Is baking soda still good after 30 days?
Does Baking Soda Go Bad? Baking soda is good indefinitely past its best by date, although it can lose potency over time.

Can I brush my teeth with fridge baking soda?

Does baking soda spoil?
Once a box of baking soda is opened, it has a shelf life of about six months to a year. If you happen to find an unopened box, chances are it may still be good even if it’s past the expiration date (generally about 18 months from the time it went on sale).
What if your baking powder is out of date?
Expired baking powder loses its potency after its use-by date, usually 18 to 24 months after manufacture. The only danger of using expired baking soda or baking powder is its inability to properly rise, resulting in baked goods that are flat and dense.
How do you store baking soda after opening?
Once you open a new box of baking soda, transfer it to an airtight container to help it stay fresh. We don’t recommend keeping it in its cardboard box because it isn’t resealable. Since one of the best uses for baking soda is absorbing odors, leaving it open in your pantry isn’t ideal, either!
How do you know if baking soda is expired?

How long does baking soda absorb odors?
Sprinkle the mixture onto fabric surfaces, including carpeting, and let sit for 30 minutes or overnight. Vacuum up the baking soda mixture, and with it, those bad smells.
How can you tell if baking powder is still good?
To check whether baking powder is still active, spoon a bit into a bowl (1/2 teaspoon will do) and pour in boiling water (1/4 cup will do). If the mixture bubbles, your powder’s good to go! If it doesn’t, your powder’s good to go…in the trash. It won’t give your baked goods the rise they so desire.
