This one chemical can be used to tackle a variety of cleaning chores, both in the home and outside.
Sodium percarbonate is also known as oxygen bleach, and is made from sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. When dissolved in water, sodium hydroxide will break down into simply oxygen, water, and sodium carbonate, or soda ash.
