      I live in Canada, and can find it at the local superstore.
      in the same place i can find Washing Soad, Borax and washing soap, for my home made laundry soap.

      I was hoping 1 of our CA members would be able to answer this for you, but none have said anything thus far.... I would suggest asking your local supermarket or big box store (walmart/ Target, etc) whether they carry it.
      ~Enjoy!~

      I am in Oregon and the only place I have found it is at WINCO--I believe that chain is also in CA.

      i was told once that if you cant find it, to microwave baking soda for about 10 minutes and it will turn into sodium carbonate. i havent tried it since i can find it next to the calgon in the laundry aisle.

      Ok here's what I honestly did!!! I could not find washing soda anywhere either!! We're in a pretty small town, I searched every market we had here to no avail. Really didn't feel like traveling further and coming up empty handed. I had been so excited to have found the recipe when I first joined, I wanted to make my laundry soap ASAP so....... I light bulb went off in my head.

      We used to have a pool at our old house. I remember that the PH+ we used, from HTH, was sodium carbonate. Off I went to Walmart! They had already began clearing out the summer merchandise and I was praying I would find some PH+ somewhere. Sure enough, after a bit of digging, I found two bottles of it. Got them each for $2.50!! Which has enough to make three batches of laundry soap! That should hold me over for a while until I figure out where to find the washing soda, if not I'll jsut grab a few more bottles at the end of season next year!
