Washing Soda vs. Baking Soda
Hello Jeanne, is washing soda the same as baking soda? I remember my Mum putting it in her Machine when doing the white clothes. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
Washing soda is different than baking soda. Baking soda can be added to your detergent and it helps with odors and I am sure it helps a bit with cleaning. Washing soda is stronger and can be used as a general household cleaner. It can be used to wash walls, sinks, and appliances or anything with grease or grime. Washing soda will clean many tough cleaning problems. It is strong enough that you will want to wear gloves when cleaning surfaces with it. Washing soda will take out mustard, blueberries, grease, oil, makeup, blood, grass and perspiration.
I hope this has helped you with your question. I often put some baking soda as well as washing soda in my laundry soap recipe.
