Just say both......I have got sodium cirate but you can never work out how much to put in .... but itsb great for cleaning my tools lol

I use it all the time on cornice work in workshop but only use it in casting plaster iwould put to a yellow bucket full of water the same as u would put salt on your dinner this gives about 20 minutes longer working life I have in past over dosed it and this is rely a very slow set but never known it affect the finish never tried tartar
