Re-Introduced to 20 Mule Team Borax. I remember my mother and grandmother using it in laundry, fish water and general cleaning. Just recently I realized how well 20 Mule Team really is. I add it along with laundry detergent and let the whites soak for about 30 minutes. They came out looking as if I had added bleach. I add a little into the fish water and it actually helps cut grease. My stainless steel sink even shines after. What's more amazing is; there was a brown spot (quater size) in the bottom of the porcelain toilet that had been there for years. No amount of cleaning and chemicals affected this spot. I sprinkle 20 Mule Team around the bowl to help remove any calcium ring. It was left there over night. That day I brushed the toilet down and flushed. I was astounded by what I didn't see, the spot was gone!! I am still amazed after 25 years of cleaning.

It's good to get rid of sugar ants too

I poured some of this and some dawn dish washing liquid in the holding tank in my RV, made the smell much more tolerable. After letting it work for a few days and a good flushing, the odor is gone and the level sensors work again. It's good for getting rid of sugar ants too.

NATURAL. Fresh

Borax seems like something my mother or grandmother would have used so I stayed away from buying it. Then I decided to give it a try when I saw a do-it-yourself recipe for home made laundry detergent. It Works wonders. Smells terrific without added perfumes. Clean

I know now that this stuff has been around forever, but I just recently discovered it. I have used it as a laundry booster and general cleaner (mixed with water and vinegar). Look, I live with a man and a young boy so as you know if you are in a similar situation, sometimes the bathroom can be rather funky. I have tried to many different cleaners in there but I always feel like I can still smell pee no matter what I try! After using this (in the cleaning concoction mentioned above) the smell was GONE. I sprayed it all over the floor and then mopped and was amazed at how clean it looked and that the stench was no more. I think it's helping in the laundry, though it's kind of hard to tell. I found several other ideas online for things you can do with this stuff and I look forward to trying several of them.

Borax Believer!

Verified purchase

This detergent booster has been around for so long that I had forgotten about it. I bought this again recently and will be using it regularly from now on. It smells great and takes only 1/4-1/2 cup(depending on the soil) added to my regular detergent to remove stubborn stains and makes my laundry smell so fresh. So far, I have not used it on anything but laundry but I understand it has multiple uses.

1. YES I USE IT TO MAKE MY OWN LAUNDRY DETERGENT

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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

1. 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.

2. 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!) =)

3. 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/

4. Borax is generally great for bugs; something about the crystal structure punctures the exoskeletons of many bugs and results in their deaths. I rent a house and there is a horrible ant colony outside where there was once a water leak; I use this (in addition to commercial pesticides) to get rid of them and keep them away.

3. My son has been wetting the bed almost nightly. It has a terrible odor and nothing worked until I tried the OxyClean Odor Blaster powder. OMG it takes it out completely! I have tried EVERYTHING, Vinegar, baking soda, regular OxyClean, and even OdoBan-works but has a nasty STRONG smell which causes my son to itch and weeze.
