Question Baking Soda & Kitty Litter - Is it Safe?

I wish to find ways to lessen the odors coming from the kitty litter box. I use a very large and deep thick plastic box to hold the litter, and although I keep it very clean, and as it is in a space where there is no window, I often find myself in a "gagging" mode. because of the odor. I have tried placing an open container of vinegar in the area in the hopes that it will help....but I don't find any huge difference. I was thinking of mixing in a small box of baking soda into the clumping litter (which is the only type I can afford).

I have been wondering about the effects of using additional baking soda mixed into the kitty litter. When our cats lick their paws, and thereby consume some of the baking soda - over time, could it cause any health problems? I would appreciate the opinions of other cat owners who may have been wondering about this also? Thank you!
