Re: Baking Soda and Extreme Humidity
Baking soda is only going to hold so much moisture before it stops absorbing it. Once it's wet, it is NOT going to emit humidity or condensation in amounts sufficient to cause what you have described. My suspicion is that it's either water being spilled down the back of the faucet, which is traveling through the stopper actuator hole or that the overflow has rusted or broken. These are the most common. Look at the underside of the sink at the faucet connections. Does it look like water has had a habit of running down in this area? Check the overflow from the point it leaves the inside of the sink to the point it enters at the drain.
Another common failure point is the caulking that seals the sink to the counter top. How is the finish on the sink? Has it been chipped off and rusted through, particularly around the lip where it is caulked? If so, the enamel finish could have separated from the sink and is allowing water through there.
There are other places that leaks can occur, but I'll wait for more input before continuing.
