Soda Crystals are also known as washing soda and are not to be confused with caustic soda. Before the advent of detergents, it was the main product used for both cleaning and laundry.

Soda Crystals are ideal for removing grease and dirt, making them a true multi-purpose cleaner. If you are immersing your hands in them for any length of time, it's best to wear rubber gloves.

Soda Crystals are extremely good value, with hundreds of uses including:

  • Removing burnt on residue in pots and pans
  • Helping keep sinks and drains fresh and blockage free
  • Removing moss and algae from patios
  • A floor cleaner with natural disinfecting properties.
  • Soda Crystals are approved by DEFRA for the prevention of 'foot & mouth' disease.
  • Suitable for septic tanks

Soda Crystals can also be used to soften the water in your washing machine. This means you'll need less detergent – saving you money – as well as helping remove stains. It will also help make your clothes softer. With regular use, Soda Crystals will also help keep your washing machine free of limescale and detergent build up.

I use his product (chemical name: sodium carbonate heptahydrate)mainly as a cleaner for tarnished silver by adding some aluminium foil to a very hot solution of the crystals and immediately immersing the tarnished item. Within seconds the silver is gleaming! This is an old method, which does not harm the silver, unlike abrasive or polishing methods and relies on a well-known chemical reaction.
I also use the crystals as an effective drain cleaner.
28/12/2013
Superb service - ordered one day and received the next with free delivery. Highly recommend using this retailer.
