25 Great Ways to Use All Natural Borax
17. Shower, tub, and tile cleaner
Just sprinkle some borax on a damp sponge or rag and use the same way you would powdered cleanser without fear of scratching. Great on fiberglass tubs! Rinse thoroughly afterwards.
18. Clean linens
Get rid of mildew stains or that musty smell linens sometimes get by soaking them in a bucket with 2 quarts of water mixed with 2 cups borax. Let them soak for a few hours (or overnight) then wash as usual.
19. Clean patio furniture
In a spray bottle, mix 1 teaspoon of dish detergent, 1 teaspoon of borax, and 1 quart of warm water. Shake well, and then spray on your outdoor patio furniture. Rinse with clean water afterwards.
20. Deodorize the cat box
Keep those smells to a minimum by mixing a few tablespoons of borax into your cat’s litterbox.
21. Garbage disposal cleaner
Clean and deodorize your garbage disposal by putting 3 or 4 tablespoons borax down the drain. Let sit for an hour, and then flush with hot water.
22. Garbage can deodorizer
You can also keep that trash can smelling clean by filing it with a mixture of borax and water. Let it soak for a few hours, and then rinse it out. Once it’s completely dry, sprinkle some borax in the bottom to keep bugs out while absorbing any moisture that might cause odors.
23. Unclog drains
Unclog your drains naturally, without the use of harsh, toxic chemicals, by pouring ½ a cup of borax down the drain, and then add 2 cups of boiling water. Let this sit for about 156 or 20 minutes, and then flush with hot water.
24. Mattress cleaner
If you have a little one who still wets the bed on occasion, try this. Wet the mattress, and then rub in some borax with a damp cloth. Let dry completely, and then vacuum.
25. Weed killer
Forget RoundUp or any of those other deadly chemicals; kill those weeds that are cropping up in your driveway, patio or sidewalk by sprinkling them with borax. Don’t use in your lawn or garden because borax will kill your flowers and grass too!
