Sodium Percarbonate

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Got my batch of Sodium Perc from Ebay a few weeks back and thought I would share as it is pretty good value.

I got the 5kg for $35 however the same seller sells it in multiple (smaller) sizes if you don't need so much.

I'd check the ingredients. I bought some stuff called oxygen bleach years ago advertised as pure sodium percarbonate. A quick read of the label revealed it to be only 35% sodium percarbonate, 33% alkaline salts and who knows what the rest was made up of. Hopefully yours is as advertised.

For anyone in Brisbane, Craftbrewer sells the pure stuff (or as pure as you can get at 88%), 5kg for $20 and a 25kg sack I bought recently for $60, used to be $78. I don't know if the $60 is the new standard price or a sale price though.

I've always been a sodium perc purist but recently gone to the dark (and cheap side) and went aldi napi san

I used to use that before I went to percarbonate by itself. I prefer the perc, what residue it leaves behind rinses off way faster than the nappy soakers.

My missus steals half of my sodium perc these days for soaking clothes and cleaning pots when she has burnt crap to the bottom

When you guys get rid of sodium percabonate solution, do you just chuck down the drain? Spread on the garden? Or should it be flushed down the toilet? I’m not sure how hazardous this stuff is post cleaning.

It's harmless post cleaning. It breaks down to sodium carbonate and oxygen, and water of course. Down the drain is fine, but don't put it on your garden. Did that once on the lawn and it went yellow in that area. Sometimes I tip it on the concrete patio.

Boiling citric acid will clean that stuff off as well. But from the looks of it you did get the 'pure' percarbonate rather than the 35% stuff I got off eBay. It is good shit though, I use it around the house, it's quite effective at removing baked on food from crockery and whatever as well. I've also used it to remove stains from tea cups.
