How do I bathe? In carbonates, silly human!
#DYK Carbonates can be used as a dust to bathe chinchillas, like using a little dry shampoo. When the chinchillas roll in it, the carbonates penetrate their coat down to the skin and absorbs oil from their fur.

Carbonates are added to electrode coverings in stick welding to provide arc stability. When heated, it decomposes and the CO2 controls the hydrogen. This provides protection from cracking in high strength steels, low alloy steels, and low carbon steels. *
