Maker Details Dutch for Sand-Soda Soap is a combination of cleaning products that were used in the 20th century. They often sat in three metals (often enamelled) containers, which then stood again in a rack. Soap was used everywhere, for washing dishes, laundry, floors etc. The game also was green soap, often in liquid form, sometimes in a more solid form that had to be in hot water solved. If something was very dirty, there was sometimes used to make soda. Anything clean Whether or not combined with soap, this resulted in a cleaner result. If even soap and soda could not get clean or something was really caked, was used sand to sand with. Clean This was often very fine, sharp sand.
