I'm Not A Scrubber Review with images

AdvantagesClean your whole house for just 99p

DisadvantagesJust aluminium but even that can be used as an advantage.

"Soda Crystals: Cheap and Chips and still going strong after over 150 years of use! It's nearing the anniversary of my grandma's death. She was a wonderful lady, strong and even though grandparents shouldn't have favourites, she made it quite clear to everyone that I was hers. Sadly she died from cancer after a long battle. It is in her memory that I'd like to review soda crystals. A bizarre thing to dedicate to her but I know she'd appreciate ..." Read review

Little Cleaning Crystals of Wonderment Review with images

AdvantagesCheap, Environmentally friendly, Versatile...they're just great, ok?

DisadvantagesYou wouldn't want to sprinkle them on your cornflakes!

"...save. My latest discovery is Soda Crystals and for this I need to thank Kim and Aggie and my other half being late home, causing me to watch their programme on BBCAmerica (Their show is on 4 times a day in America, can you believe it?). My shopping bill seems to get bigger and bigger and I often find new products I want to try out, or 'need' as they claim to 'better than the rest'. My biggest expense always seem to come from cleaning products, ..." Read review

The Force Is Strong

AdvantagesCheap and versatile, environmentally friendly

DisadvantagesCan't use to clean aluminium, irritant

"...they have never heard of soda crystals, or "washing soda", as it is sometimes called. Almost none of my friends use it. Yet soda crystals have been around a long, long time - in fact, at the beginning of the century they were virtually the only cleaning product available except for soap. And this is probably why they are not in demand today, as they are seen as old-fashioned, and too general in their action. It seems that consumers today want specialised ..." Read review

Do you get a Brown Ring

AdvantagesGood on greasy deposits

DisadvantagesLeaves a residue and dries hands

"...that I should try using Soda Crystals. The next time I was shopping, I saw the said Soda Crystals and purchased them at the small cost of 62p, (I’ve found them even cheaper since then). The Crystals come in two formats, Soda Crystals, (small rocks about the size of petit pois) and Fine Soda Crystals, (a sugar like consistency) If you can get them, the Fine Soda Crystals are easier to use but both work equally as well.

Secret ingredient needed for laundry

Advantagescheap, softens clothes, stain removing ability

Disadvantagesnone

"...my sister recommended I try soda crystals. Soda crystals have been around for years and have been used for cleaning before the creation of modern cleaning products. I found a bag in Asda for 75p for 1kg. I thought this was a great bargain and was hopeful it would help my clothes. I have only been using this for a couple of weeks and I wished I had discovered this sooner. I put a small amount (about 2 tablespoons) in with my washing powder and ..." Read review

Superb stain remover.

Advantagescheap; safe and removes stains like no other

Disadvantagesnot safe on aluminium

"I first read about soda crystals (aka washing soda) in a book on environmentally friendly cleaning product alternatives. I vaguely remembered then my mum using them to unblock the sink when I was young in the 80s. I read on ciao of one lady using them to whiten her tea towels; well I have 3 boys under the age of 4 and I must have thrown away 10s if not 100s of vests; socks and other white badly stained items. i have also had to throw away coloured ..."

OUT DAMN SPOT OUT Review with images

AdvantagesCheap and Versatile

DisadvantagesIRRITANT

"I started to use soda crystals when my bathroom sink blocked. My mother bless her soul suspected grease and suggested an old fashion approach SODA CRYSTALS. That was sometime ago. After a while I got bored with the time it took to work and used other types of cleaners ie Mr Muscle. Unfortunately these can be rather caustic and expensive. So I searched through my cupboards and pulled out my bag of SODA CRYSTALS. My packet manufactured by Dri Pak comes ..." Read review

Quick review of Soda Crystals

"I recently used the power of the soda crystal solution to rid my patio area of moss and leaf residue. It was an amazing result. I left soda crystals over the effected area overnight and then rinsed all away the next day with a hose. Result = patio worthy of a new lounger!!

Soda Crystals - One Multi Purpose cleaner!

AdvantagesVery cheap, versatile...and environmentally friendly!

DisadvantagesI can't find any!

"...I had never heard of Soda Crystals, until my mum recommend that I use them on a stubborn blocked drain. I bought a 1kg pack from Sainsbury's for about 85p and I've been converted ever since! It worked a treat on my drain, just by pouring the crystals down, and flushing through with boiling water. I do it every month or so now, to prevent it getting that bad again! The beauty of Soda Crystals is their versatility! They can be used all around ..." Read review

Quick review of Soda Crystals

"I got married recently and had to clean my house for 50 guests. I searched my cuboard for something to clean with. I pulled out a bag of soda crystals!!! Don't know how they got there ( think my mum must have bought them) Well they are like magic in a bag. I cleaned all my dooors, conservatory upvc, kitchen cuboards just everywhere. They are amazing. So now I have a husband and a trusted faithful friend.I will spread the word.
