Default not sure

I'm not sure you can make diatamaceous earth out of sand and baking soda because it is made by Earth naturally. It is made by fossilized diatoms which are microscopic hard shelled creatures. It is also used as a pesticide because these creatures have spikes that are lethal to the exoskeleton of an insect.
