Washing soda is a natural chemical compound used in homemade cleaning products like laundry powders, dish washer powders, bathroom cleaners and more.
It is a safe, affordable alternative to store bought washing and cleaning products and is a mix of sodium carbonate and water - closely related to sodium bicarbonate but not the same. The sodium carbonate softens water helping to lift stains and other greasy marks on your clothes and around your home.
This washing soda is in a semi crystal form but it can easily be blitzed up to create a finer grind for your recipes.
We have been using washing soda in our cleaning products for a while now and have noticed improvements in the safeness for our family, the affordability and effectiveness of our cleaning products. Check out our blog for recipes like our DIY Natural Dish Washer Powder here.
