A powerful natural cleaner thanks to it’s high alkalinity (pH 11), Sodium Carbonate (Na2CO3) is commonly known as Soda Ash. It's a fine powder and an active ingredient in washing soda. It can be used to make detergents and household cleaners.

In fabric dyeing, soda ash makes permanent connection or as color fixer that holds the dye to the fiber. Adding the soda ash before (presoaked) the dye is the usual method for tie-dye.


  • Tie the fabric or leave them loose to start the presoaking process.
  • Make up a solution of 1/2 or 1 cup of soda ash per gallon of water.
  • Soda ash dissolves best in warm water, 96oF or 35oC.
  • Soak the fabric from 5 minutes to an hour (60minutes) depending on your recipe and technique.
  • Wring the fabric and start preparing to apply dye. (It is optional to dry the presoaked fabric)

 Tips: You can add soda ash after tie-dye process.


For Household Use:

  • Cleaning garbage bins - Up to 2 tablespoons of sodium carbonate dissolved in water to help remove grease, grime and dirt.
  • General cleaning of hard surfaces (counter tops, floors, etc) - mix ½ cup of sodium carbonate to 4-8 liters of warm water.
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sodium carbonate in your toilet bowl and leave it for 10 minutes before cleaning with brush.
  • Keep your drains clear by pouring 1/4 cup of sodium carbonate down the train and flushing with water. This can be done once a month.



Soda ash can be irritating to breathe and to skin as well. Wear a pair of gloves and face mask while handling soda ash mixture.
