You can use Soda Crystals as a water softener as well as for tackling dirt, grease and oil in a variety of contexts around your home, from unblocking sinks to cleaning the washing machine to removing the burnt residue on your pots and pans. They’re also great for cleaning an area before using a disinfectant on it, but don’t use these two products at the same time, and never mix bleach with any other cleaning products.

If you are looking to use a disinfecting product, remember that it's always advisable to clean an area BEFORE you try to disinfect it. Don't be tempted to mix a cleaning product and a disinfectant at the same time as the former will reduce its effectiveness. You should never mix bleach with other products as it could be potentially dangerous.
