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.
A guide to Soda Crystals strengths
Soda Crystals are best dissolved in warm
water. In fact, the hotter the solution, the more effective it will be
(especially if grease or oil is involved) - with the exception of blood stains,
in which cool water is best.
The strength required depends on the
application. As a guide, we recommend the following:
- Mild - 1
tablespoon (20g) to one pint (500ml) of water
- Regular -
Half a cup (100g) to one pint (500ml) of water
- Strong - 1
cup (200g) to one pint (500ml) of water
NB. Do not use soda crystals or liquid
soda crystals on aluminium or lacquered surfaces.
