It’s back to freshen things up: household remedy bicarbonate of soda. In our grandparents’ day, it was widely used for washing and cleaning, and we now wonder how we managed without it for so long!
At HEITMANN, however, we wanted more. That’s why we added sodium carbonate, also known as soda, to bicarbonate of soda, combining the two components to create a modern household remedy that’s satisfyingly versatile: pure Active Soda. In one ingredient—a solid solution of bicarbonate of soda and sodium carbonate—the advantages of sodium carbonate and bicarbonate of soda are united in a powerful yet gentle household remedy that ensures perfect cleaning results.

What is bicarbonate of soda?
Want to join us on a brief detour into the world of chemistry to get a better understanding of how bicarbonate of soda works?
Like ordinary table salt, it’s a sodium salt. It’s also known by the chemical name sodium hydrogencarbonate. It occurs naturally, but today it’s mostly obtained from table salt. Bicarbonate of soda is also used as a raising agent. Chemically, and in appearance, bicarbonate of soda is similar to sodium carbonate, often known as soda or washing soda. Please never forget that sodium carbonate must not be eaten. HEITMANN Active Soda combines bicarbonate of soda and sodium carbonate as sodium sesquicarbonate in the above-mentioned solid solution. It’s very effective while still being gentle on surfaces and so on.
Under no circumstances should our Active Soda product be used in any baking recipe, as it’s NOT intended for use in food. However, it is ideal for cleaning cookware, tableware, ovens, and kitchens for hygienic and food-safe results.

How to use Active Soda to remove odours
As well as generating kitchen waste, cooking also produces odours. Active Soda from HEITMANN is the answer as it can remove a wide range of smells. Active Soda reliably neutralises everything from the odour of sour milk from milk frothers to the whiff of onion and garlic coming from wooden chopping boards and so on.
What’s more, the versatile and effective bicarbonate of soda powder is also suitable for refreshing shoes and textiles—with very little effort. Simply sprinkle Active Soda powder into shoes, onto carpets, or on anything else in the home that smells unpleasant. Active Soda absorbs odours, so you’re aware of nothing but a fresh scent.
Kitchenware can simply be washed with a solution of water and Active Soda, leaving it not only clean but also hygienically fresh, no matter what you might have cooked beforehand.
How to use Active Soda as a degreaser
So many tasty foods leave residues behind in the kitchen. Greasy deposits, for instance. But even these can be removed easily and gently using Active Soda. Mix the bicarbonate of soda powder with water to make a solution you can use to remove grease from ovens, baking trays, wall tiles, and extractor hoods in next to no time. For a kitchen that looks brand new.
How to use Active Soda to clean teapots and coffee-pots
Few things are as difficult to clean as teapots and coffee-pots. So, what can you do about stubborn soiling and odours? The answer: Active Soda can remove them effectively, even in tricky cases like these. With little effort, your teapots and coffee-pots will be spotless again, and you won’t see (or smell) their dirty past.
How to use Active Soda to remove stains
Another strength of Active Soda is in pretreating stains. Even tough opponents like grease spots and coloured mixed stains, such as make-up, tomato sauce, or lipstick, can be lifted from deep in the fibres of your laundry. Simply mix Active Soda with water to form a paste and apply it to the stain. Once it’s had time to take effect, wash your clothes as usual. And then? Clean laundry and pure bliss!
How to soften water with Active Soda
Some regions struggle with it more than others: “hard” water with a high mineral content, which leaves its mark everywhere. Multi-purpose Active Soda softens water, allowing cleaning agents to work more effectively, so you can use less of them. Simply add some Active Soda to your cleaning water. Giving the Active Soda solution another five minutes to act will, if all goes well, make your limescale problem a thing of the past.
What makes Active Soda from HEITMANN so special?
Cleaning agents based on bicarbonate of soda or household bicarbonate of soda are proven household remedies, as they clean powerfully but gently. Sodium carbonate, or soda, is also valued for its similar properties.
The best of both powerful household remedies has been combined in HEITMANN Active Soda. It’s perfect for modern—and, above all, sustainable—household and laundry care and can be used in many different ways. HEITMANN Active Soda ensures food-safe cleanliness and is natural and hygienic, so it’s kind to the environment.
