What is Sodium percarbonate?
Sodium percarbonate is known as an oxygen bleach. Sodium percarbonate is formed when sodium carbonate has been treated with hydrogen peroxide and when dissolved in water, releases a powerful combination of oxygenated hydrogen peroxide and sodium carbonate.
There are two types of bleach, oxygen bleaches and chlorine bleaches. Oxygen bleaches are eco-friendly, whereas chlorine bleaches are hardcore and can make your eyes water!!!

Does Sodium percarbonate really remove mould?
See my soaking instructions below, and please click here for more of my mould removal instructions!
BUT...always follow up with diluted Clove Bud. Sodium percarbonate removes the stain, and Clove Bud will kill the Mould spours - which are the dangerous part. Once you have removed the mould stain, spray with diluted Clove Bud and leave for 24hrs. It takes 24hrs to kill the spours - and then wash as normal.
Is Sodium percarbonate like bleach?
Sodium Percarbonate is not a chlorine bleach, instead, it is an environmentally friendly version, known as an oxygen bleach, that is safe on colours, whiten whites, and as an added bonus, does not weaken fabrics like traditional bleach. Chlorine bleach uses an oxidizer to break chemical bonds and release the stain-causing substance. In traditional chlorine bleach, a highly toxic substance called sodium hypochlorite is used as the oxidizer. Chlorine bleach is very poisonous (dioxin and chloroform are by-products) and it can create highly toxic chlorine gas if mixed with ammonia.

Discard unused material down the drain. It will actually help clean and deodorize your drains.
Sodium percarbonate solutions are most effective when mixed and used in very hot to boiling water.
