What is Washing Soda?

A Reader asks: “What is washing soda? Is it baking soda?”

Tawra: Washing soda is not baking soda.

Washing soda should be in the laundry section of your grocery store. It comes in a yellow box, made by Arm & Hammer, but it’s NOT baking soda. If you’re interested, washing soda is Sodium Carbonate (Na2CO3), baking soda is Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3), and borax is Sodium Tetraborate Decahydrate (Na2B4O7*10H2O), all different chemical compounds.

You can find it locally at Walmart or in the laundry section of most stores. You can also order it at many places online.
