    What temp should it be cooked at?

    And how do you know whenit is cooked to ash? Seems it is already pretty fine as it is.

      This is where I got it from. Haven't tried it. But now knowing it is also known as Soda Ash, I am going to be making friends with somebody who works in the mill. I know they use that to refine the ore and I have delivered countless 1000kg bags to the mine.

        A site about soda ash. It has many different uses.

        If larger quantities are require places selling Water Treatment Supplies might be a good source??

          It feels really great to sell a pen;
          It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

          If your presence doesn't make an impact,
          Your absence won't make a difference!

              I have to agree with Gene ... that's a lot of effort for something you can easily buy. SWMBO might not like the science experiment either.

                  Check you local grocery store. It is normally with the laundry detergent or cleaning supplies.

                  Home Hardware also sells it http://www.homehardware.ca/en/rec/in...I4527273?Num=1

                    I've tried all sorts of places, including grocery stores. Gonna start looking at Goodwill/Salvation Army soon.


                    EDIT: Actually, I think I'm going to call the manufacturer at this point.

                    EDIT #2: You can't even send them a request thru their "contact us" email without entering a legitimate UPC product code and a production lot number. Now how stupid is that?

                    What's even more insulting is their logo staring at you with it's "Making Life Easier" motto and what is a meaningless blurb of "Your inquiries are important to us". BS!!!. Quite the opposite actually.

                        As linked to above, call your local Home Hardware and give them the item number (4527-273) to see if they have it in stock.

                        Surely that can't be that hard?

                          Re: Washing Soda.....a new source

                          Well I called them, and they said it was available in Canada at LCL (No idea who this is), Safeway (None in my neck of the woods), Sobey's (Not at the two near me I checked), Federal Co-Op (none around here either), and lastly some retailer in Quebec the girl I spoke to could not pronounce the name of in any discernable manner.

                          I still need to try the Loblaws 5 kms away where I generally never shop at. Hopefully they'll have it.

                            Did a quick internet search, and "LCL" is likely Loblaws Canada Limited. How silly that they would have it listed and suggested as "LCL". That's just plain stupid......again!

                              That's because LCL sells through & owns many different stores -- FYI -- http://loblawstores.ca/LCLOnline/
