The Top (Green) White Sink Solution

Submitted by on Sunday, 4 July 20102 Comments

Most of us have found getting whites white one of the bigger challenges of green housekeeping. Fortunately, with using the natural mineral sodium percarbonate, your woes will be over. It is composed of salt, limestone and oxygenated water. You can get your sink and tub as white as anybody using out-of-favor chlorine bleach.

Ok, you might say, but where do I get that? Happily, the Ecover brand‘s Laundry Bleach is nothing but 100% percarbonate (and this plain and simple ingredient is what I recommend), and it is easily available in natural food stores. Another brand that offers a percarbonate product is Oxy-Boost Destainer & Deodorizing Oxygen Bleach.

    whoo-hoo! I read Clean and Green years ago, have been making my fantastick according to your recipe– only to find that, lately, it’s really difficult to find washing soda (sodium carbonate?) OR borax. Thanks for this piece.
