Borax is a natural alkaline mineral salt which is a very effective antibacterial, fungicidal cleaning and bleaching agent. It is widely regarded as better for the environment than bleach.
Some uses for Borax:
• Remove mildew and mustiness from linens by soaking in 2 cups with water and let sit for 3-4 hours • Mix 50:50 with honey to eradicate ants – this works really well • To remove sticky gooey gummy adhesive mix 2:1 ratio borax and water and rub on • Sprinkle on a damp sponge or soft cloth and use as you would a powdered cleanser. This can even be used on fibreglass surfaces without scratching, such as showers, tiles and baths. • Remove stains from stainless steel or porcelain sinks with a paste of 1 cup borax and lemon juice. Using a sponge or cloth, rub the stain with the paste. Rinse with warm water. • Mix 1 tsp dishwash liquid, 1 tsp borax and 1 litre warm water in a spray bottle and use to clean outdoor furniture. • Mix 1 tsp to ½ cup water and soak toes/feet to get rid of fungal infections
