is soda ash the same as the soda crystals you can buy in the supermarket?

I didn't think it was :-? Well, it's similar but the soda crystals but it's not the same strength. I used half a packet of the soda crystals to dye a few things before, and it wasn't enough. Soda ash can be bought on ebay, although I bought a bottle of powder called "PH Up" sold for swimming pool use, it was super cheap (cheaper than the bags sold specifically for dyeing, but its the exact same thing) and you may be able to get it in a local pool/diving supply shop if you happen to have one near you.

Thanks, I will probably stick with the soda ash then :)
