Sodium percarbonate is basically a "friendly", safe, non-toxic, biodegradable alternative to chlorine bleach. It is also called oxygen bleach. When dissolved in water (over 50°C), it releases oxygen which acts as a powerful stain remover and disinfectant. It's ideal for whitening, deodorising or whitening old linens and yellowing whites. Sodium percarbonate does not create harmful fumes like chlorine bleach.

How to use

It is ideal for sanitising nappies or whitening old linens and yellowing whites. When dissolved in water, sodium percarbonate breaks down into oxygen, water and sodium carbonate (soda ash). Always remember that in order for it to release the oxygen and be effective as a disinfectant, sodium percarbonate needs temperatures over 50°C, as hot water accelerates the bleaching action; otherwise, it won’t work and will be wasted.

There are many uses for this super eco-friendly product in and around the home.
To pre-soak heavily stained laundry. Dissolve the powder in hot water (10g - around 1tbsp - x 1kg of laundry) before submerging clothing and leave overnight. Remember not to apply the powder directly onto fabrics and always check suitability of fabrics first.
To de-stain tea and coffee cups or sterilise kitchen/bathroom cloths, brushes (toothbrushes, toilet brushes, hairbrushes) and other utensils. Dissolve 1 tsp of powder in 500 ml of hot water prior to submerging anything you want to sanitise.
If you cannot use hot water, you just need to let it soak in cold water overnight. In fact, sodium percarbonate is immediately active with high temperatures (as I mentioned before) or needs extended hours (10-12 hours) to break down.
