Note: Avoid spilling or spraying onto plants

STONEWORK

Clean steps, driveways and stonework with a strong solution.

GARDEN TOOLS

For easy maintenance of saws, hedge trimmers and clippers, scrub with washing soda on a wet, stiff-bristled brush. Hose off and let dry in the sun.

Note: Do not use on aluminum tools.

BARBEQUES

Washing soda is renowned for its ability to cut through grease, so it is ideal for cleaning barbecues. If possible soak components in a strong, hot solution for an hour or more before rinsing well with clean water. Use a strong solution and scrub grills and pans with a stiff brush.
