"The difference between baking soda & other blast media is how it works to clean. Regular blast media is abrasive & has sharp edges. It's those sharp edges that cut through the dirt, carbon, etc. Its that abrasiveness, once past the dirt & carbon, that can alter & change the surface being cleaned by cutting into it. Another negative aspect to some blast media is its ability to imbed itself into the surface being blasted. Think of a dart being thrown at a dart board. The sharper the dart & softer the surface, the deeper it will go in. Baking soda does not have sharp edges. It removes organic media by exploding (breaking apart) upon impact & lifting the organic material off the surface. Baking soda does a very poor job of removing rust & some paint. So it depends on the part being blasted & what is trying to be removed. Hopefully this answers your question." - Greg from @millennium_motorsports
