The four main ingredients in OxiClean are:
- Sodium Carbonate
- Sodium Percarbonate
- Hydrogen Peroxide
Sodium carbonate is also known as soda ash, and is sold separately as washing soda. It’s like baking soda’s cousin that you sometimes hear about and is often used as an ingredient in all natural cleaning recipes and as a laundry booster on it’s own.
Some DIY OxiClean recipes call for baking soda but you need to use washing soda. It won’t be nearly as effective with baking soda.
