NB, Baking Powder and Baking Soda are not the same product...

Oops! Thanks Karearea. At least I never made that kind of mistake when flying both Avgas and Jet A-1 machines!

From what I can gather from the technical stuff, both baking powder and soda contain the bicarbonates which help the superglue bind better and faster.
I do not know what effect the extra ingredient in baking powder (a mild acid) will have on the bonding.
Baking soda is preferable because it has a longer shelf life and is cheaper.
