    Hope you guys can help me with this question:

    1) the ratio you found best not to affect Ph too much i.e. the ratio mix of baked and non-baked ?

    2) Once mixed Baking Soda + Sodium Carbonate ratio can this be used overtime as per normal ?

    Your help will be appreciated

    1. I used to use 50/50
    2. I used as normal

    Mix according to strength and purity of chemicals
