There are so many more options and solutions for washing soda than we can list here, but I think you get the general idea that is versatile and amazing!

Remember, while washing soda is effective, it's important to do a patch test on a small, inconspicuous area before using it on a larger scale, especially on sensitive surfaces. Additionally, wear gloves when handling and mixing washing soda.
