Borax is pretty amazing. I use it for all sorts of cleaning. I put a tablespoon into a five ounce spray bottle then fill the bottle with hot water. I shake the bottle to dissolve the powder and use it for an all-purpose cleaner. It has a very light odor, which works well for the allergies around here. I also use it in the laundry soap. It helps remove the hard water stains from our clothing. It’s great stuff because it’s organic. My mother says that it deters cockroaches as well! While I don’t A. have cockroaches or B. know if this is actual fact, I don’t care! I hate “critters” in the house and I spray the garbage can with my homemade cleaner, just in case there’s an ounce of truth to it! Besides, I have no idea just how many critters are hanging out in the yard, just waiting for me to leave the door open long enough for an invasion…. yes, I clean the door frame with Borax to keep the critters out. You could tell me to dance on the table with a dreamcatcher while chanting Nicholas Cage movie lines to keep critters out, and I just might do it.

Here’s a link to the 20 Mule Borax website:

and here’s a link to some cool information on the mineral itself:
