Sodium PERcarbonate: a precious ally


 sodium PERcarbonate

Are you really put off by the smell and composition of bleach?

Are you looking for a healthy solution for you and the environment to whiten your bedding, your reusable diapers, your washable sanitary napkins?

So here is an effective and economical solution: percarbonate of soda !

But what is this?
First of all, it is important to clarify that baking soda , soda crystals or caustic soda are all COMPLETELY different materials, both in their composition (and therefore precautions to take) and in their uses.

Sodium percarbonate , sodium percarbonate or even “solid hydrogen peroxide” are exactly the same product.
These are actually synonyms for a practical white powder, which takes its effectiveness as the result of a reaction between soda ash and hydrogen peroxide.

What's the point?

Good stuff! Hence the title of this article '' Soda percarbonate : a precious ally''!

What we love about it so much is that it easily replaces bleach with its stain removal and whitening power, without discoloring or yellowing fabrics: fabulous!

But that's not all, it is also economical and ecological while having multiple powers:
  • Whitening and stain remover that doesn't alter the color (I know, we're repeating ourselves here, but it's so effective!)
  • Disinfectant
  • Eliminates mold and acts as an odor control.
  • Descaler.
  • Multi-surface and all-purpose cleaner.
More concretely ? How do we use it? Whiten (you suspected that, didn't you?)

For brilliant white, all the time

Simply add a tablespoon to your load of laundry.

Soda percarbonate is most effective when used with hot or lukewarm water. So, if your fabrics require a lot of bleaching work, increasing the wash water temperature will be desirable and beneficial here.

For yellowed fabrics?
Preferably fill your container, sink or bath with hot water. Add one tablespoon per 5 liters of water. Leave your white fabrics to soak overnight or your dark fabrics for more or less an hour. Drain and put in the clothes washer.

For light stains: Simply add 2 tablespoons to your usual load of laundry.

For stubborn stains: Mix baking soda and water to form a paste. Apply the paste to the stain and leave for a few minutes before putting the fabric in the clothes washer.

For sanitary napkins: Although soda percarbonate is most effective when used with hot water, it is important to use lukewarm water for sanitary pads so as not to cook the blood.
We first rinse the sanitary towels and soak them in a ratio of one tablespoon to 5 liters of water overnight and then put them in the clothes washer.

*** For washable diapers ***

To prevent clogging of reusable diapers, 2 tablespoons of percarbonate in each load is very effective.

If your diapers are clogged, here is the miracle recipe:
Place your washable diapers in 5 liters of very hot water (in a bathtub or in the sink) and 2 tablespoons of percarbonate of soda , leave to act overnight. Then, using hot water, do a load of diapers in your clothes washer.


Have you bought a second-hand piece of furniture that smells of cigarettes? Make a paste of percarbonate and water and apply it to the furniture. Rub, leave for a few minutes and rinse. You doubt that you are going to damage your furniture, do a test on an inconspicuous part.
