Sodium Carbonate is also known as SODA ASH. Unlike the previous harshness attributed to CAUSTIC SODA, SODA ASH mitigates the harshness of CAUSTIC SODA thereby making it more palatable for skin touch. Thanks to SODA ASH, we can touch and use soap anyhow without irritation. The addition of SODA ASH also prevents hard water from bonding with soap. It allows for a more even distribution of the cleaning agent during the washing cycle. SODA ASH is also very effective in removing alcohol and grease stains from clothes. A large number of formulated domestic products, soaps, scouring powders, soaking and washing powders etc. have a varying content of SODA ASH. Unlike SODIUM HYDROXIDE, SODA ASH is environmental friendly. It is the most romantic of all the agents but remember, no chemical should be handled carelessly.
