Soda Ash And Magic Water

Recommended Posts

I am trying out an American recipe for magic water, which includes soda ash, water and soda silicate.

Is soda ash the same thing as bicarb soda i use in the kitchen? perhaps the terminology is different in Australian recipes?

But,you can make soda ash by calcining the baking soda. In fact just place the baking soda in a frying pan and heat it on high. The extra CO2 will start to "bubble out" of the baking soda. stur until no new gas bubbles form. You now have soda ash, sodium carbonate. Make sure to keep it in a sealed container after heating.
