I found some today after running to the third store. One problem is on the list of contents is anionic and nonionic sulfatuants and enzymes as well as less than .5% phosporus by weight. Is this ok to use? I wouldn't think so but so far no luck finding washing soda with just sodium carbonate.

Thanks.

No, don't use that. It's essentially laundry detergent, not pure sodium carbonate. I've seen this product as well, but it was sold in the laundry detergent section and didn't say Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda that is used as a laundry booster and is pure sodium carbonate. What you are seeing is a laundry detergent on its own.

Yes, I believe that is the right stuff. However, since manufacturers do sometimes decide to change their formulations, be sure and look at the Ingredients list and if it says anything other than just Sodium Carbonate, beware.
