Borax...a review and quick giveaway!

Borax...I love using Borax!


It is one of the ingredients in the homemade laundry detergent that I make...



There are other ways I like to use it however:
1.  Add a tablespoon or 2 of Borax to a few cups of hot water....swish it together, and this makes a fabulous floor cleaner for my bathroom linoleum floors.  (Sometimes I make a little "paste" and use it on the floor with a scrub brush too).  Mind you, you actually need to get down on your hands and knees, and use a little elbow grease, but this is very effective in getting the hairspray residue off of the floor!  :)

2.  I have made my own dishwasher detergent before mixing equal parts Borax with equal parts Super Washing Soda, and adding 2 T. to the dishwasher before running it.

3.  Sprinkle Borax into the toilet bowl, scrub around with a toilet brush.  Let the Borax/water sit in the bowl for at least 30 minutes before flushing.

4.  Then there's "gak"...an unconventional use for Borax.  I made "gak" several times when I taught elementary science classes...Borax, and Elmers Glue!!  Check out a video of  "Gak"
