Crystallized washing soda, 400 grams (or dry sodium carbonate, 140 grams) is dissolved in 10 liters of tap water; chlorinated lime, 200 grams, is added, and the mixture shaken; after half an hour siphon off the clear solution, rejecting the sediment of calcium carbonate; filter through a plug of cotton and add 40 grams of boric acid, and the solution is ready for use; it will keep for about a week, precipitating slightly. It is a neutral sodium hypochlorite solution, similar to Labarraque's solution but without the excessive alkalinity of the latter.
