    Customer review by An anonymous customer

    Works great on laundry as well as around the home! This (only this Laundry Booster at that) can also remove fleas and roaches from infested homes and /or yards. I have used this product for years and years when moving into a new apartment or home with this purpose in mind. Just sprinkle along the floors and clean up in a few hours or the next day and no bugs of any kind will be seen! Again once every year or so for upkeep and your have a secret worth sharing!

    I have been using Borax for a year now in my laundry. This is supposed to soften water, as my well water is hard. It also helps your laundry detergent work better. I stopped using fabric softener over a year ago, and I believe this product helps my clothes dry softer. When I use the dryer, I barely notice a difference in softness - (I'm not real fussy about how soft stuff is as long as it doesn't stand up by itself, lol) and if I line dry, I just toss the dry items into the dryer for 10 min on low just to soften them a little. I am trying to use less product, less electricity and be more health conscious about what I put on my skin.

    Customer review by FreshLaundryGal

    5.0 stars by FreshLaundryGal

    I have an new high efficiency washer and it is difficult to get strong odors out of jeans, bathroom and kitchen towels and wash cloths. The Internet says that oily soap residue is the cause as it traps odors. This product saved the day! Until I found it, I was washing these items 2-3 times with vinegar and baking soda (no added laundry soap). Funny, Ted's Montana Grill offers this in the women's restroom for hand washing!

    • A. Yes, and here is my recipe: Three bars Fels Naptha soap, grated One box 20 Mule Team Borax One box of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 1/2 4 lb box of Arm & Hammer baking soda Mix together and use 1-2 tablespoons per load. I normally use just one. And I use my food processor to grate the soap. If you add a little of either of the dry ingredients to the food processor when you grate, it helps to grate it finer and keeps it from sticking to the blades. This recipe makes 22 cups, which is 352 tablespoons. 1 Tbsp per load = 352 loads for around $12.00

    • A. I use Borax to make my own DIYS liquid and dry laundry soap. I mix it with Zote soap, Arm and Hammer washing soda and Oxy clean; all I buy in Walmart. I have hard water and have noticed a great improvement in my laundry.I make up extra batches for my kids and I also use it on baby clothes. I personally like the dry DIYS laundry soap. Check out You Tube for DIYS laundry soap.

    • A. I wouldn't use Borax on your skin, it has irritants. In fact it warns on the box about getting it on your skin, eyes or breathing it. It's recommended for laundry or general cleaning, mixing with washing soda or Oxi Clean works great in warm/hot water.

    • A. Mix Borax with soda ash(Arm & Hammer Washing Soda), borax softens the water and the soda ash loosens the dirt. Together they make a great detergent, it's what my grandmothers used.

    • A. I use this 20 mule team borax to make laundry soap. I also use it to make lotions , facial creams and body lotion. I started making my own products because what I purchased premade either broke my face out or made it peel. I have not had that problems since I make my own now. I hope that helps

    • A. Hopefully they will not remove this link. But here is a great article on natural flea control and talks about using it on carpets. http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/non-toxic-flea-and-tick-control/

    • A. We have used Borax for this exact purpose, (among countless other uses), and found it VERY EFFECTIVE. We covered our wall-to-wall carpet with 7 boxes, left it overnight and *vacuumed it all up the next day. It basically suffocates the fleas. Given the fact that 7 boxes costs less than $30.00, it's a far cry from having the carpet professionally cleaned - which in our experience, had proven to be costly AND unsuccessful. (*We actually recycled the vacuumed-up Borax by sieving it and used it for whatever other outdoor uses we may need it. Waste not, want not!) =)

    • A. It works very well. Sprinkle it on the carpet and scrub it in with a dry bristle broom. Do this to all floors with carpet, because fleas will get every where. To check on fleas place a white towel on the floor. They are so small you can`t detect them unless you have a white background. Good luck.
