Washing Soda (Soda Ash)
Natural Washing Soda (or Soda Ash or Soda Powder)
Where to Buy?
Sodium carbonate, otherwise more commonly known as washing soda, soda ash or soda powder, is a popular ingredient in laundry soaps and washing detergent and other household cleaning products. Our washing soda provides a natural alternative to commercial laundry detergent as it is sourced from the ashes of burned plants, hence the term “soda ash”. Note well that washing soda is not baking soda or sodium bicarbonate.
In laundry care, sodium carbonate softens water which helps other cleaning agents lift dirt from fabrics and suspends the soil in the wash water. It can be dissolved in water and used as a presoaking agent for tough, hard-to-remove grease and stains. As a suggestion, add 1/2 cup of washing soda to your laundry water so less detergent is required.
