Borax-mirical worker!

Well, don't knwo if many of you know this, but Borax is SO EXCELLENT for killing fleas in the house!! All you do is sprinkle it all over the furniture, floor, pet bedding and wash pet stuff in washer with it. Then vacuum it up after a day or so. It doesn't hurt the animals and it kills fleas DEAD! I have used this product for over 10 years and will swear on it!

Great for Flea Control in dog pen and area!

I have used 20 Mule Team Borax laundry detergent for many yrs. Started using it for flea control about 6 years ago in our outside dog (2) houses, the pen and on our back deck where they also like to lay. It doesn't suds up when it rains like you would think it would either. Use it dry and sprinkled around everywhere the dogs hang out, it keeps the fleas and eggs away. It dries them up. But I've noticed its getting hard get. We are going to have to start asking for it to be stocked in our stores. It works great and the price is right! I also use Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in rinse water for the dogs. I use it as rinse after their bath to keep from getting the hot spots and helps to keep the fleas off, esp. the two little fury people that live in the house with us. We take them out the front since the big dogs are in the back, they pick up fleas even with the front yard treated with chem. the heavy rains have washed it away and one is allergic to flea control stuff for dogs. To keep the skeeters away I lightly spray their coats with skin-so-soft but don't get it on their skin, some dogs are sensitive to it.

Best multipurpose product

I really try very hard to find products that are both excellent and cheap. Borax IS that product. I've used it in my classroom and home as an excellent bug repellent, as a laundry booster, to freshen the carpets in my home, to clean the disposal and dishwasher, to remove stains from clothing, and even to clean baked grime from pots and pans. The best part is that it does all of these things REMARKABLY WELL!

us it in stead of bleach - great to remove odors

Since I have been using Borax I have not used bleach in the whites. I also use it with the colored clothes - excellent stain removal and odor removal. Gets rid of the deoderant in clothes as well. I have a HE washer - I put 1/2 cup in the drum with the dirty laundry. Then the regular amount of detergent and fabric softner in the disperser drawer.

This stuff can be used for so much more than laundry. Add it with some Arm and hammer super washing (not baking) soda and a ground up bar of fels naptha soap and a gallon of water and you make your own laundry detergent. Kills bugs, great for taking stains out of mattresses, kills odors on carpets. can use everywhere.

4. Borax does not have a sudsing action. So it should be of great use. At the laundry mat I use it in the double loaders. About a quarter of a cup is sufficient.

5. Yes, it can! And since I started using it in the laundry there is no more stinky smell that is common in front loading machines. Toss 1/4-1/2 cup on top of the clothes and use your laundry detergent as usual.

1. Instead of a shampoo, you should rub the powder into their fur, because wetting the powder dissolves the crystals that kill fleas. My dog loved it when I rubbed him with it!
by VentrueCapital

2. The best way to kill fleas by shampoo is to use Dawn dish soap. suds them up real good and leave it on for a couple minutes then rinse well. Don't get it in their eyes, it burns like crazy!

3. it's not harmful to skin as an irritant, but could be absorbed into the body in greater amounts during bath. Since it is an inorganic salt, probably don't want to bath a pet in it. But great for sprinkling around pet locations and outside to control fleas. and ants.
by HighTechMaMa

4. I would not, it can be drying to the skin. But you can sprinkle it lightly in the carpet and their bedding, the furniture, let it sit and it will help to kill fleas, larvae, and discourage ants.
