You know, nworth, I also thought, initially, that the baking soda would simply 'slow things down' and not contribute to the effects of a contrast increase by suppressing the 'toe' area.

Perhaps this is wishful thinking on my part (maybe you and Gerald Koch are correct) and I certainly would like to hear either agreement with me or more counter-argument. I need to know more about this, either here or in the future.
