I want to know far more than I do now before I go mixing several chemicals together.

Pat, thank you, it's just what Nerds do. I'm at the bottom of the scale on chemistry. I'm about to embark on experiments with baking soda and citric acid to make Trisodium Citrate dihydrate (Sodium citrate). It's useful for making:

Bath bomb fizzies
Smooth cheese sauce
Homebrew Alka-Seltzer (with some aspirin)

It's a mix of about 1.2:1 of baking soda to citric acid by weight. And some warm water. Hopefully I can manage it.
