An aqueous sodium chloride solution for use in production of caustic soda in an electrolytic cell having a cation exchange membrane is purified by adding to said solution a chemical reagent for precipitation separation of impurities remove silica through co-precipitation with a slurry of the precipitates of impurities which are circulated through said solution.
