Applications

Sodium sulfate decahydrate is used as a laboratory reagent to precipitate protein. It is largely used as filler in powdered home laundry detergents. It facilitates in leveling, reducing negative charges on fibers, thereby allows dye to penetrate evenly. It avoids the corrosion of stainless steel vessels used in dyeing. It is also used as a laxative and effectively replaces the drug paracetamol in the body.

Notes

Stable. Incompatible with strong acids, aluminum and magnesium.
