The name sounds scary - but rest assured it’s not as bad as it seems. Sodium percarbonate is a natural cleaning product that can be used to clean everything from your laundry to your fridge, and more!
Sodium percarbonate is the granulated powder form of hydrogen peroxide and it’s often used as a pre-soak in heavily stained laundry. It can also be dissolved into a paste and used on hard stains such as tile grout.
For a fast and effective way to remove upholstery stains, you can mix half a tablespoon of sodium percarbonate with 250 ml of warm water and decant it into a spray bottle. This solution can be applied to the stain and then gently scrubbed with a stiff brush.
To kill mould and mildew and tackle food stains, sprinkle a few tablespoons of sodium percarbonate into your sink and leave to sit for 15 minutes. Then, simply wipe down and rinse the sink.
For general cleaning, you can also use a spray of sodium percarbonate to naturally cleanse your kitchen. Just spray it onto the surface and let it stand for 15 minutes. Then, simply rinse with clean water and wipe down.
Sodium percarbonate is commonly used in barrel cleaning, and it can be mixed 0.25 to 0.5 ounces per gallon of water and then poured into the barrel and topped up with more water. Depending on how much you want to clean the barrel, you can also soak it for an hour or so before rinsing off.
