I'm powerful enough to clean most anything,
Yet gentle enough to eat.

I'm used to make an explosion of sorts,
Yet can be found at millions of stores worldwide.

I can kill grass,
And even tenderize your meat.

I can clean up even the smelliest stench,
and soften your fabrics.


What am I?


Answer

Baking Soda.

It is used for a variety of cleaning.
It is a common ingredient in many baked foods.
It can react with vinegar to form an "explosion". (Typically used in a "Baking Soda Volcano").
It can be purchased at many stores around the world.

Baking soda can be used to kill crab grass.
It can speed up the tenderizing process of meat in stew.
It is used to remove odor in fabrics.
It is also used as a fabric softener.


The typo in the title is on purpose. "NaHCO3" is the chemical name for Baking Soda. Looks similar to "nacho", doesn't it?
