Soda ash can vary in density, size, and shape. This flexibility allows it to be used in a variety of everyday products, like detergents and soaps. The detergent industry utilizes medium dense or lighter grades of Ciner soda ash to create a variety of common household products found in the laundry room, kitchen, and bathroom.

From soaking powders to dish soap, soda ash is often referred to as “washing soda.” It can be used alone or with other cleaning agents and is essentially a water softener with high performing cleaning functions. When combined with other cleaning agents, soda ash’s unique properties allows those agents to disperse evenly during washing cycles. Acting as a compound builder, it prevents the hard water from bonding with the detergent while simultaneously removing grease and alcohol stains from clothing. It does this by providing alkalinity to water while removing magnesium and calcium ions that are prevalent in hard water.

Naturally mined from the ground and refined with no additional chemicals, Ciner soda ash provides the detergent industry with superior, environmentally-friendly, high quality soda ash. Along with environmentally-friendly detergents and soaps, Ciner soda ash is also used in a variety of other industries, such as glass manufacturing, pulp processing, pH control, specialty chemicals manufacturing (phosphates, chromium, etc.), and food manufacturing (yeast, baking soda, etc.) industries.
