A Guide to Borax and Its Uses

Borax is a jack of all trades when it comes to household cleaning. This substance can clean, shine, and freshen almost any surface you can think of. It also comes in handy as a deterrent for mice and pests. Check out our infographic below for some of the best uses of borax!

Borax is so versatile it can be used in any room of the house, and even outside as a weed-killer and rust-remover! One of its main benefits is its deodorizing power. Use it to freshen carpets, garbage cans, garbage disposals, and mattresses. You can even create household products from borax; learn to make dishwasher tablets and even homemade candles!

To use borax as a deterrent for mice, sprinkle some along floors and baseboards where mice are likely to travel in your home. Alternatively, try mixing borax with sugar and sprinkle the mixture along areas where you notice ants, roaches, and other pests entering your home. Borax can also repel that other creepy pest: mold! Mix with water to create a paste, and then apply it to any areas where mold is occurring. Let it dry overnight, then remove the borax and enjoy your fresh walls and ceiling.
