If only I had a nickel for each time I told my parents I hated them, I'd be in better shape financially.

The baking soda did not fizz completely away, It doesn't fizz "away", but the vinegar is using up some of the baking soda, and the baking soda is using up all of the vinegar, and the fizz goes away in seconds if you're mixing it into a paste. So adding vinegar accomplishes nothing for what you're doing, and in fact neutralizes part of one ingredient, so...

Oh. I took the subject line literally. Considering the far-out types I'm meeting here, I really envisioned all the attendees with SCUBA at the bottom of a pool.
Peridin-C (C flavonoid complex including a standardized amount of hesperidin) from Beutlich is said to work vs. peri-menopausal hot flushing.
