"Excellent Washing Soda"
COMMENTS:  I use this sodium carbonate (aka Washing Soda) in laundry detergent. I love that it comes in handy 5 lb bags, and that it is truly fragrance free. If you've bought washing soda at the grocery store (usually Arm & Hammer brand), take a whiff of it and you'll find it has a bit of a fragrance added to it. Not so with this product, which is wonderful for those who are sensitive to chemical fragrances.
