I do not have any baking soda and I was wondering instead of buying any right now I have a big can of baking powder. Can you use this for no pooing? I use acv to rince although i am considering lemon juice. This is my first day of no pooing. Although I only shampoo about twice a week with Melalueca shampoo. It is gettin to expensive to buy from them anymore and I am trying out the no poo regimine.

I wouldn't....it has corn starch in it, which will make it turn into goop, like gravy, iykwim.

I wouldn't do it either. They are different products, and you won't get the results you're looking for. Baking soda has sooooooooooo many uses (home and body). Baking powder is a different compound and not as resourceful.
