Laundry Water Softener
Sodium Carbonate softens water by preventing heavy metals from binding to it or the laundry detergent. It's also very effective at removing oil and grease from clothes.
Sodium Carbonate can be used to de-scale boilers and kettles.
You can make a cleaning solution by mixing Sodium Carbonate and table salt in hot water. Add some aluminium foil and the silver article to be cleaned to the solution and immerse fully. The outer coating of the foil is removed by the solution and an electrolytic cell is produced. The resulting H+ ions reduce the sulphide ions that have built up on the silver and restoring its finish.
