Buy sodium carbonate online
You don’t always need a lot to get great results. Sodium carbonate, the superhero among household remedies, is a prime example. The mineral, which has its origins in nature, can be used in a variety of ways for cleaning, laundry, and home and garden care more generally. Sodium carbonate—also known as soda—demonstrates its special powers when faced with blackened baking trays and smelly Thermos flasks that simply can’t be cleaned in the usual way. Soda is also a powerful laundry aid. And if you want a sustainable option to keep your patio and garden furniture free of moss and algae, you absolutely must have this all-rounder to hand. HEITMANN offers sodium carbonate in three handy forms: as a conventional powder, conveniently predissolved as a liquid in a bottle, and as powerful soda crystals.

What is soda?
Soda has a long history as a cleaning agent. The ancient Egyptians valued the mineral and created salt evaporation pools to obtain it from soda lakes. As a naturally occurring mineral, soda—also known by its chemical name sodium carbonate—is environmentally friendly. When mixed with water, Pure Soda forms a strongly alkaline solution, making it ideal for removing grease and dirt. To do this, the soda breaks down grease into fatty acids and glycerine. The result—believe it or not—is soap. Due to its water-softening properties, soda lowers the hardness of water, reducing the amount of detergent and cleaning product needed while still boosting their effect.
Sodium carbonate owes its nickname washing soda to these positive properties.
But be careful: Pure Soda is great for lots of tasks, but it’s not suitable for human consumption. Never forget that, please!
Key advantages of soda
Soda’s list of accomplishments is really long. It’s very effective at removing grease, dirt, stains, and odours. It also ensures hygienic, food-safe cleanliness. That’s what makes it a real all-rounder, suitable for use everywhere—from drains to fences. You can’t ask for much more from a cleaning agent!
What can soda be used for?
You can use soda for many household and laundry tasks, and around the house and garden. Let’s look at the most important areas of application.
Using soda for household care
Sodium carbonate, or soda, is ideal for cleaning. Since soda removes grease, dirt, and odours, it’s very well suited to help with washing up and cleaning. It makes sure that wooden chopping boards, milk jugs, and thermal mugs look (and smell) like new after they’ve been treated.
But there’s even more to soda’s success story. Greasy and encrusted items such as baking trays and pans can be cleaned easily and thoroughly using Pure Soda from HEITMAN. Or maybe you’d like to clean your tiles with soda because they’ve lost their lustre? No problem! The household remedy dissolves grease and dirt from backsplashes and floor tiles.
#HEITMANN Soda can also help tackle dirt, soap residue, and unpleasant odours in and around drains. It works best if you flush out the “problem areas” with a hot soda solution.
Wash laundry with soda
Sodium carbonate is arguably the best-known traditional household remedy for laundry care. That’s why—as we mentioned above—it’s often referred to as washing soda. You can use it to pretreat heavily soiled laundry. To do this, soak work clothing, socks, table linen, or bed linen overnight and wash them as usual the next day.
HEITMANN pure Soda Crystals are also great for giving detergent a boost. Simply add some to the detergent compartment and it will help your detergent perform better and even allow you to use less.
Soda around the home and garden
You can also benefit from sodium carbonate’s cleaning properties to help you care for your home and garden. When suitably pretreated with HEITMANN Pure Soda, unsightly, slimy moss and algae are easily brushed off, leaving garden furniture and fences looking as good as new. Stone slabs and brickwork can also be cleaned with soda, as can walls and doors. The same goes for flower pots and terracotta: removing moss, algae, and limescale deposits is effortless after they’ve been dipped in solution.
Discover HEITMANN’s handy soda products
HEITMANN offers the multi-purpose household remedy sodium carbonate in three handy forms. Soda powder is a classic. Even our grandmothers’ grandmothers used soda powder to help with their housework and laundry. Predissolved Liquid Soda is popular and convenient. It dissolves immediately in cleaning water and can be used undiluted in cases of heavy soiling. Soda Crystals are especially powerful. They rarely form clumps or dust, making the product very user-friendly. Thanks to their good flow properties, Soda Crystals are ideal for use as a washing power booster and can be added to the machine directly via the detergent compartment.
Frequently asked questions about soda
Here, we’d like to give you the answers to some frequently asked questions about HEITMANN Pure Soda.

Yes. There’s even a technical term for this process: lime softening. The softening process takes one to two hours in cold water, but it’s much quicker (around two minutes) in hot water.
Why do washing-up liquids and cleaning agents work better when you add soda?
One reason is that sodium carbonate softens water. Plus, soda breaks down grease and forms soap, which makes it an excellent cleaning product.
Is it safe to use soda to clean kitchenware?
Yes. Soda is food-safe and leaves items hygienically clean, so you can confidently store food in dishes or containers that have been cleaned with soda. It’s even recommended for cleaning preserving jars. Soda leaves them hygienically clean; and the preserves themselves even stay fresh for longer.
