A guide to strengths
Do you know how to use Soda Crystals? More importantly, do you know how much you should use? Soda Crystals are usually dissolved in warm water. In fact, the hotter the solution, the more effective it will be – with the exception of blood stains.
The strength required depends on the application. As a guide, we recommend the following:
- Mild – 1 tablespoon (20g) to one pint (500ml) of water
- Regular – Half a cup (100g) to one pint (500ml) of water
- Strong – 1 cup (200g) to one pint (500ml) of water
NB. Do not use soda crystals or liquid soda crystals on aluminium or lacquered surfaces.
