It’s a question we often get asked. While both are the same chemical, Sodium carbonate, the are made differently. Our washing soda is NOT the same as washing soda crystals. Our washing soda is a dry powder that is very concentrated. Soda crystals look like crystal chunks and have a high water component & are not as concentrated and so clean less effectively.
Unfortunately, no. All our recipes were developed using our concentrated dry powder also know as soda ash dense. Washing soda crystals will not give the same result. When crystals are used in laundry powder and dishwasher powder recipes, they clean less effectively and get damp and clumpy.
