How to use

 

  • To soften and freshen laundry - add 1/2 a cup to your load and use less washing powder.
  • As an all-purpose cleaner - mix 2 teaspoons of Borax with 2 cups of hot water and shake to blend. Keep it in a spray bottle to clean surfaces.
  • Make toilet cleaning easier - distribute a cup of Borax into the bowl at night. Next morning the grime will be loosened and ready to remove with the toilet brush.
  • Clean bathtubs and sinks with a paste made from a cup of Borax and 1/4 cup lemon juice. Rub the stain with the paste and rinse with warm water.
  • As an insecticide - sprinkle Borax on dog beds, carpets and areas where you suspect fleas, cockroaches and ants. They will be gone in no time.
  • Inhibit mould growth - apply a thick paste of Borax and water. Once it's dry, sweep away and rinse.
  • Unclog drains - use 1/2 cup of Borax followed by 2 cups of boiling water. Let it sit for 15 minutes then run the water to flush it out.
  • Can be used as bath or foot soak - add 50-300gms of Borax per bath or a tablespoon to a foot soak.
