Sodium percarbonate is a molecular complex obtained by hydrogen peroxide adsorbing on to sodium carbonate (wash soda). Exposed to warmth (from 50 °C / 122 °F upwards), the hydrogen peroxide is being broken down again into water and active oxygen. With increasing temperature the reaction is being accelerated in such a way that the bleaching effect in the washing machine is at its best once reached 95 °C (200 °F). The oxygen being released is especially active on organic stains such as grass stains, fruit stains, etc. by oxidizing the dyestuffs thus making them colourless, or by turning adhering, stain-causing substances into water-soluble ones again by oxidizing them.
