It's basic, less so than sodium hydroxide but can be used as"washing soda". Do you have a tub and wonder if there'ssomething cool to be had out of it?

We used to have an old washing machine. Picture a 55 gallon drum with a lid and a motor on the bottom.

A small amount can make orange juice fizzy - just don't use too much or it'll taste salty.

Sodium carbonate is a good electrolyte for electrolytic derusting (Google it).
