Some Borax is produced synthetically. Ours is all natural, harvested from ancient deep Mediterranean deposits.
Borax is an eco-friendly alternative to harsh chemicals with a wide range of uses in the home, including:
- To Soften and Freshen Laundry - add about a cup of Borax to your washing load, either with the detergent or in the rinse cycle, to freshen and soften your laundry.
- As an all purpose cleaning product - mix 2 teaspoons of Borax with 2 cups of hot water. Shake to blend. Pour into a spray bottle.
- For Bathroom and Kitchen use - Distribute 1 cup of Borax into the toilet bowl at night. The next morning, clean out the toilet bowl with a brush. You will find the job effortless because the Borax has loosened the grime buildup. This non-abrasive cleaner can also be used in the bathtub or on your counters. Remove hard stains from stainless steel or porcelain sinks with the following recipe - Make a paste with 1 cup Borax and 1/4 cup lemon juice. Using a sponge or cloth, rub the stain with the paste. Rinse with warm water.
- As an insecticide - for pests such as flees sprinkle Borax on dog beds, carpets, and other areas where you suspect that fleas are hatching. Shake out or vacuum. To stop ants invading your house, sprinkle Borax along ant tracks.
- Mould Inhibitor - Make a thick Borax and water paste. Smear it on the mouldy area. Let set until dry (overnight or longer). Sweep up the powder, and rinse off the rest.
- Unclog drains with 1/2 cup of Borax followed by 2 cups of boiling water. Let is sit for 15 minutes, then run your water for a few minutes to flush it out.
Borax in Bath/Foot Soaks
A bath or foot soak of 15 grams Borax to 5 litres of warm water is an approx equivalent to 300grams per 100 litre bath.
300grams per 100litres is equivalent to Boron concentrations in those natural hot springs known as ‘Miracle Waters’!
Bath at least a few times per week until relief is experienced for aching bones and joints.
