A guide to Soda Crystals strengths

Soda Crystals are best dissolved in warm water. In fact, the hotter the solution, the more effective it will be (especially if grease or oil is involved) - with the exception of blood stains, in which cool water is best.

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.
