What is washing soda NZ?
Just so, what is washing soda in South Africa?
Dux Washing soda is a highly alkaline chemical compound also known as Sodium Carbonate or Soda Ash. It can be used to clean floors, walls, sinks, drains, bathroom tiles, in fact almost any surface where you would use a multi-purpose cleaner.
Furthermore, is Borax the same as washing soda? Washing soda or soda ash is the common name for sodium carbonate, this naturally occurring mineral carries the formula Na2CO3. Washing soda itself is extremely alkaline with a pH level of 11. Borax on the other hand has a slightly different chemical composition of sodium tetraborate or Na2B4O7.
Subsequently, question is, is washing soda and baking soda the same?
Washing soda is not the same as baking soda. They are two different compounds and are used for completely different purposes. Washing soda, aka sodium carbonate (or soda ash), is a natural cleaner and a powerful water softener.
What is the difference between washing soda and soda ash?
Washing soda and soda ash are both sodium carbonate. Both will work fine as a high-pH presoak for tie-dyeing, to activate the fiber molecules so that they attack the dye molecule, forming a strong chemical bond. Washing soda contains a lot more water than soda ash does, although it too is a dry white powder.
