    laundry section at walmart, target, major grocery store chains, etc

    I live in Canada, and can find it at the local superstore.

    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 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!

    so far so good!! i used 55oz., just had to measure it out that's all! DH has super sensitive skin so if there was going to be a problem, would've seen it by now.

    Have been using the soap for a bit over a month now.

    Thanks, I will hit the stores this weekend to see if there are still some on sale out there.
    That could really help bring the price down some!

    Thank you for the advice on pool supplies. I found a huge thing of sodium carbonate at Lowe's this afternoon and picked it up. I'm so excited to be able to cut cleaning costs!

    I have my borax, my fels naptha, my washing soda...I'm ready!
