NaHCO3 + CH3COOH --> NaCH3COO + CO2

how would I balance this equation? it is backing soda and vinegar, and it forms sodium acetate, CO2 and a substance that turns blue cobalt paper pink? So there is a product missing on the right hand side, so what would that product me and how would i balance the final equation, thanks.

I believe water is also a reaction product. Actually if you add a water molecule to the right hand side, the equation should balance itself.
