What Are Concentrated Soda Crystals And How To Use Them
Concentrated soda crystals are a multi-purpose cleaning agent and an effective environmentally friendly alternative to other high-street toxic cleaning products. The powder is soluble in water and it cleans, removes odours, saponifies grease and neutralises acids.
The alkaline pH of concentrated soda crystals allows the neutralisation of acidity and removes any greasy stains. It can also be used to clean enamel surfaces (bathtub, toilet, washbasins, etc.), marble or to clear blocked pipes (build-ups made of organic material). Concentrated soda crystals are almost three times as active as traditional water-containing soda crystals.
Are soda crystals the same as bicarbonate of soda?
No, soda crystals are not exactly the same as baking soda or bicarbonate of soda. Soda crystals are sodium carbonate decahydrate, which is chemically similar to baking soda. However, soda crystals are more alkaline and so are better, for example, at removing grease and stains.
