Our Washing Soda is all natural – simply harvested, and filtered. A premium sodium carbonate with no added ingredients. Washing Soda is a key component of laundry soaps and other household cleaning products. It easily removes dirt and tough, greasy stains from clothes, utensils, floors and other surfaces
Blend 2 cups sodium carbonate (washing soda), 1.5 cups fine salt, 1.5 cups ground coconut soap, 2 cups sodium bicarbonate (bicarb), add essential oils to the wash as required. I love citrus essential oils or lavender for linen and towels or Tea Tree and citrus oils for smelly sport socks.
Mix with very hot water and stir to dissolve fully. If using a washing machine, pour the mix into the agitator, or otherwise add it to the washing water.
Coconut Soap and washing soda is very effective and yet low in suds as it does not contain sodium lauryl sulphate, which is the chemical added to commercial detergents to produce suds. It can therefore be used in front loaders, but use sparingly until you are confident on how much to use in your front loader. Use in front loaders at your own discretion. If in doubt, or you are concerned you will violate machine warranty, then probably best to use an alternative product.
It is advisable to wash with commercial detergents every 10th wash as modern washing machines require the detergents in commercial cleaners to remove any soap residue.
