After looking high and low, finally found it at a place I shop at all
If a guy around here wanted some washing soda, he'd want to go to
Orchard (OSH). Look in the pool chemical section for something called
"pH Plus" by Kem-Tek.
The only other place I found locally that has this is a pool supply
place up in Richmond that wanted about $12 for 5 lbs; at OSH, it's $7.50.
Pure sodium carbonate according to the list of ingrediments.
Just as McDonald\'s is where you go when you\'re hungry but don\'t really
care about the quality of your food, Wikipedia is where you go when

I buy "light soda ash" in 50-pound sacks for about $14. This is a
lot of washing soda; one bag lasts about 6-8 years. Look under
cleaning supplies in the yellow pages. It's also known as "sal soda"
or just plain "soda." I use it to make laundry soap or as a laundry

I buy it at a chemical supply warehouse. Most chemicals are sold to
janitorial businesses or soap factories. You may need to learn a few
Chinese words, especially the word(s) for "soda ash." You might be
able to order it online, although shipping costs would be high.
