Cleaning with Borax

April 10, 2012

Are you looking for a natural way to clean your home? Borax is an often overlooked answer to many of your house cleaning problems. A common ingredient in laundry detergent, borax should be kept out of reach of children and pets, but it is an effective choice for your house cleaning needs. You can find borax in any grocery store in the laundry detergent aisle.

Mold Remover: Mix together 1/2 cup of borax with 1 gallon of water and use the solution to remove mold and mildew in your bathroom.

Laundry Fix: Use a borax paste to deodorize clothes and remove stains from laundry.

Shine China: You can even use borax to shine your china!  Warm water mixed with a 1/2 cup of borax will do the trick.

Disposal Cleaner: Pour 3 tablespoons of borax down your garbage disposal and then a half hour later flush with hot water.

Oven Cleaner: Create a solution of 2 teaspoons borax, 2 tablespoons liquid soap and 1 quart of warm water. Spray the ingredients in your oven and let sit for 20 minutes. Next wipe clean and rinse with warm water.
