Washing Soda (Sodium Carbonate) is often used in laundry soaps and other household cleaning products as it can easily remove dirt and tough greasy stains from clothes, utensils, floors, and various other surfaces. It is also referred to as Soda Ash or Soda Powder.
Whilst other brands of Washing Soda are often synthetically processed from a combination of common salt, ammonia and limestone, our Sodium Carbonate is all natural! Not processed, but harvested from deep underground ancient, mineral deposits of Sodium Carbonates & Bicarbonates. The mix is brought to the surface where a simple filtering and refining process produces a premium Washing Soda.
SAFETY & HANDLING:
Washing Soda is a natural safe and effective product that has a multitude of uses. It has a very high alkalinity which may be an irritant to some folk if not handled correctly so we advice the following:
If you are very sensitive it may be best to wear rubber gloves and other protective gear when using. However in many cases when used as a diluted solution it is actually beneficial for the hands.
- It may be best to wear safety glasses to protect the eyes.
- Do not inhale or swallow.
- Do not use on aluminium, fibreglass or polished/waxed/varnished surfaces as it will react with each of these.
