Sodium carbonate - also known as washing soda, soda ash, soda crystals and soda Solvay - is really useful as the main ingredient in a lot of DIY recipes because it has a strongly alkaline taste and forms a basic solution in water. It can be used as a laundry booster, to scrub and remove grease or oil stains.

How to use

Because sodium carbonate is strongly alkaline and forms a basic solution in water (it is essentially the opposite of citric acid), it is really useful as the main ingredient in many DIY recipes. In fact, sodium carbonate is a great ingredient to clean oven or stove grills, burners rings and baking trays. Just soak these items in a solution of hot water, sodium carbonate and washing-up liquid and leave as long as possible, preferably overnight. Then use a strong brush or a non-scratch pad to remove the grime from small spaces. You can sprinkle a thick layer of sodium bicarbonate over the items before scouring to clean them more easily.
