ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda usage instructions


Use ARM & HAMMER™ Super Washing Soda regularly in your wash cycle for added cleaning and freshening power.

Regular wash:
  • For regular wash, add ½ cup of Super Washing Soda along with the usual amount of either liquid or powder detergent at the beginning of the wash cycle. (Always follow machine instructions when adding laundry products.)

  • Add clothes and let washer fill completely.

  • For HE washers, add ½ cup of Super Washing Soda along with the usual amount of either liquid or powder detergent to the HE dispenser. (Always follow machine instructions when adding laundry products.)
Large, heavily soiled wash:
  • For large, heavily soiled wash loads use 1 cup of Super Washing Soda along with the usual amount of either liquid or powder detergent at the beginning of the wash cycle. (Always follow machine instructions when adding laundry products.) Add clothes and let washer fill completely.
Hard water:
  • For hard water conditions, add 1 cup of Super Washing Soda along with the usual amount of either liquid or powder detergent at the beginning of the wash cycle.
Tough stains:
  • Super Washing Soda adds extra cleaning and freshening power to your detergent. Stains and greasy soils sometimes need special handling. Often a routine machine wash will just not be enough to remedy stubborn problems.
  • The most effective way to remove stains is to begin treatment as soon as possible. Although some stains may be impossible to remove, a pre-treatment or pre-soak with Super Washing Soda is often very helpful – especially for removing greasy stains and embedded dirt from synthetics and cottons.
To pre-treat:
  • Make a paste of ¼ cup Super Washing Soda and a ¼ cup of warm water. Using rubber gloves, gently rub paste into dampened stain and wash as usual.

  • Always test a small, hidden area of fabric to determine colourfastness before pre-treating.
To pre-soak:
  • Pre-soak laundry in warm water (use cool water for non-colourfast items as well as for blood and egg stains).

  • Use 2 tablespoons of Super Washing Soda per 3.5 liters of warm water if pre-soaking in a small tub, or use a ½ cup if pre-soaking in a filled washing machine.

  • Pre-soak for at least 30 minutes before washing.

  • Wash with a ¼ cup of Super Washing Soda in the wash cycle, in addition to your usual detergent.
