Washing Soda (Sodium Carbonate) is also known as Soda Ash or Soda Powder. This natural washing soda is harvested from mineral deposit in the USA.
Washing Soda is a great laundry powder that removes dirt & stains or can be used for a variety of household cleaning.
This versatile Washing soda is a great natural alternative to synthetically made versions.
It can be used for a wide range of household cleaning chores – both indoors & out – and can replace dozens of other ‘products’ that can gather under the sink and in the garden shed.
How to Use:
Sodium carbonate is very alkaline and can be an irritant to some people. If sensitive, the use of rubber gloves and safety glasses is recommended. Do not swallow or inhale this product.
Washing soda is not suitable for use on aluminium, fibreglass, polished, waxed, or varnished surfaces. That said, the list of chores that this natural water-soluble salt can be used for is extensive.
In the laundry, it can be used as a super stain remover for red wine, ink, grease and other stubborn marks. Soak for a few hours or overnight in a strong solution (2 tbsps. to 4 litres of water). Or add ½ a cup of washing soda to a regular load and reduce your regular detergent by ½ – also great to soften hard water and reduce limescale build-up in your machine.
In the kitchen soak cups in a solution of washing soda to remove coffee and tannin stains. Also great for leaving glass and silverware sparkling clean, chopping boards fresh, and dishcloths or mops refreshed.
For burnt-on pots add a few spoons of washing soda and a little dishwashing detergent with hot water. Then simmer for about 15 minutes.
Use washing soda to de-grease hotplates and ovens sprinkle directly on to surfaces, or soak in a solution for at least 30 minutes. Rinse and dry well.
Washing soda is also a natural fungicide that removes mould and mildew – great for cleaning wet areas.
In the garden, washing soda can be used in swimming pools to neutralise the acid. Great for cleaning BBQ plates, paths & stonework, garden furniture, decks, painted surfaces and rubbish bins, drains and windows; or use as a remedy for citrus trees and rose plants.
