where can I buy "Washing Soda" in Canada?

I want to make my own laundry soap....does anyone know where I can buy "washing soda" in Ontario? Also, what soap would you suggest I use in it? I won't mind buying the bar soap online if it would be better. Thanks

London Drugs has Arm and Hammer brand washing soda. I am on the westcoast, so hopefully it will be the same.

I contacted Arm and Hammer directly and they sent me a list of stores near me that carry it.

Where in Ontario are you? I have a few friends just over the boarder (I live in Ogdensburg) & I bring it over with me b/c it's hard to find & pricey. I bring the big box of baking soda from wally world too.

I live in Oshawa, which is just east of Toronto. If I had known it was this hard to find I would have had my inlaws get me some when they went to NC 2 months ago. They probably won't go back until next summer

thanks for the tip; I just contacted them. Perhaps if I can find it local and even get 1 box it will do me until I find someone going to the US. How much is it in the US? Thanks

I wonder if you could find it at a bulk barn or health food store. I'm pretty sure they sell it in bulk at grassroots, if you happen to be in Toronto.
