Borax Use


All Purpose Cleaner

Put 2 teaspoons of borax in a spray bottle with 2 cups of very hot water. Shake to blend.

All-Purpose Spray

Dissolve 2 teaspoons of borax into 4 cups of hot water. Mix with 1 teaspoon of dish soap and 4 tablespoons of vinegar for an all-purpose spray you can use to clean countertops, appliances, the backsplash.

Carpet Powder

Sprinkle borax onto your carpet just as you might commercial carpet powders (you can even add a couple drops of essential oil to add your own scent (just a couple now!). Let it sit overnight then vacuum it up. This makes carpets smell wonderfully fresh!

Cat Litter Box

Minimize odour in your cat’s litter box by mixing a few tablespoons of borax in with the litter/

Clean Cutting Boards

Borax is perfect for scrubbing cutting boards clean because the little bits get right into the pores and cuts left from chopping veggies and whatnot. Since borax is slightly toxic (you would have to ingest about 10 grams per kilo of body weight to get a lethal dose -that's over 700gr for a 70kg person!) it's a good idea to rinse with plenty of warm/hot water.

Clean Hairbrushes And Combs

Mix a quarter cup Borax and a tablespoon of Dishwashing Liquid in a basin of warm water. Soak hairbrushes and combs in the solution, rinse clean, and dry.

Cleaning And Sanitizing Your Garbage Disposal

Cut disposal bacteria and mould out of the picture with a little borax every couple of weeks. Pour ¼ cup borax down the disposal with just a bit of water. Let it sit for about an hour then wash it away with hot tap water.

Cleaning Grease

Whether it’s greasy hands or a greasy barbecue grill, borax is great at cutting through tough grease. It seems to absorb it as it scrubs it away with it's fine grit. As always, rinse with lots of warm water.

Cleaning Mirrors And Windows

Dissolve a couple of tablespoons of borax in 2-3 cups water. Use a sponge or cloth to apply.

Cleaning Mould And Mildew On Outdoor Furniture

Combine 1 teaspoon each borax and liquid soap (castille soap is eco-friendly and a little goes a long way) with one quart water in a spray bottle. Spray down affected areas and allow to soak for at least an hour. Rinse with water.

Cleaning Pots And Pans

If you’re looking for a way to clean your best pots and pans without scratching them, borax can’t be beat. Just sprinkle some borax onto a wet pot/pan and rub with a cloth or sponge. Borax will not scratch no matter how hard you scrub.

Cleaning Tiles And Grout

Borax is absolutely fantastic for cleaning tiles and grout in the bathroom -especially aided by the use of an old toothbrush or other small stiff brush. Just sprinkle a little as you go along, adding just enough water to easily move the powder around. Rinse with warm water. Borax is even safe for surfaces that scratch easily -where you wouldn’t use toxic abrasive cleansers, borax works just as well and will never scratch surfaces.


Dissolve 1 tablespoon per 4 litres of water for deodorizing your refrigerator, camping coolers, etc. Sprinkle in garbage cans and add hot water to wash. When dry, sprinkle additional borax to absorb future odours.

Dishwasher Detergent

1 tablespoon borax 1 Tablespoon Himalayan Salt and 1 tablespoon baking soda.

Deter Ants From Entering Your House

Sprinkling borax along the foundation of your house will keep ants and other insects from entering your house. Though a little borax near the foundation will not harm the grass, be careful not to apply too much near plants. This also works great with snails and slugs, around deck areas, etc.

Deter Pavement Weeds

This is not recommended for use directly in the garden or flowerbed, but for sidewalks or other paved areas where weeds like to creep in, sprinkle borax along the cracks and the weeds won't be able to grow.


Sprinkle ¼ cup of borax into the bottom of your dishwasher (in addition to your normal dishwashing product). It will clean the dishwasher itself and leave glassware clear and spotless.

Drain Cleaner

Pour a ½ cup or so into the drain and let it for 15 minutes, then add hot water (the hotter the better). Repeat for tough clogs.

Eliminate Urine Odour In Fabric

Wet the affected area and rub in some borax. For particularly old or large stains you probably want to scrub it around some with a sponge or cloth. Then just let it dry and vacuum up the powder.

Flea Killer

Just like with carpet powder, sprinkle borax onto carpets, furniture and mattresses. Leave overnight and then vacuum up the next day. As far as I know, this is the most effective, eco-friendly solution for killing fleas in the home. (do not use on pets except in a (wet) solution that is washed off afterward!).

Freshening Smelly Bedding And Linens

Adding ½ cup of borax to your wash will get rid of unpleasant smells and stains (spot treat small, tough stains).

General Kitchen And Bathroom Cleanser

In addition to tiles and grout, borax works wonders on sinks and tubs. Just sprinkle a bit into a wet sink basin or tub and lightly scrub with a sponge or cloth.

Gentle Face And Hand Cleanser

Later on I’ll post some of my favourite recipes for homemade shampoos and facial cleansers, but for now: straight borax with a little bit of water is great for cleaning hands and face. It's very gentle and leaves skin feeling silky smooth.

Laundry Detergent Booster

Borax is safe to use on coloured fabrics. Simply adding ½ cup to each wash will brighten colours and make your detergent more effective.

Mice Deterrent

Sprinkle borax on the floor along the walls (mice like to run along the side of walls). They don’t like getting the borax on their feet, so they are less likely to return to that area of the house.

Oven Cleaner

Make a thick paste with borax and vinegar. Apply to the inside of your oven with a scrub brush. Let it sit for a few hours, then wipe away the grime with a damp cloth. If you find some tough spots, use your brush to scrub away the yuck.

Pest Control

Keep roaches, and ants away by sprinkling a combination of equal parts all-natural borax and sugar.

Preserve Flowers

Place flowers in a box and cover entirely with Borax. Be very careful not to crush the bloom. Once the flower is completely covered, place the box in a safe place where it won’t get knocked over for 10 to 12 days. Once the time is up, you should have a beautifully preserved flower or flowers with which to decorate. Borax absorbs the moisture out of the plant, so it doesn’t wilt and keeps its original form.

Refrigerator Deodoriser

Spilled food can be washed away with a sponge or soft cloth using a solution of 1 litre warm water and 1 tablespoon of borax. Rinse with cold water.

Rust Remover

1. Mix together equal parts Borax and lemon juice.

2. Apply the resulting solution to the rust by spraying or dabbing it on (if the object is large), or by submerging the object in a bath of the solution (if the object is small).

3. Allow the solution to soak in for 30 minutes. Then, rinse the object off; and dry thoroughly.

4. Repeat the process, if rust remains.

Scrubbing Paste

Make a paste of 1 cup of borax and ¼ cup of lemon juice. Use the paste to scrub out stains on stainless steel or porcelain kitchen sinks and fixtures.

Stovetops And Ovens

Remove grease and grime on stovetops and ovens by scrubbing them with a paste made from borax and a small amount of warm water.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Pour ½ a cup borax into the toilet bowl. You can let it sit for a while to minimize scrubbing (or not). Use a stiff brush to scrub. Voila! sparkling clean toilet boil with minimum effort and without nasty chemicals. Add ½ cup vinegar to strengthen the mixture and keep the bowl cleaner longer.

Treatment Of Fungal Infections

Among microbiologists, borax is a well known for its anti-fungal properties. Very few people have sensitivity to contact with their skin (in fact borax is often used as a skin cleanser by those with very sensitive skin), though sensitivity has been reported. That said, people suffering from any kind of external fungal infection, such as athlete’s foot, ringworm and yeast infections, can use borax mixed with water (use a paste consistency). Borax is highly effective against nearly every kind of fungal infection. Add some iodine to boost anti-fungal properties.

Very Dirty Floors

Most floor washing really only needs water and perhaps a bit of vinegar, but for really grimy floors try dissolving a ⅓ cup borax and 1 teaspoon of eco-friendly dishwasher detergent in a half bucket of water.

*IMPORTANT: The environmental effects of boron are minimal and are most noticeable in the world of plants. Minimal quantities of this element are essential for plant growth and hence boron is added to fertilisers used in boron deficient soils. Concentrations as low as 1 ppm boron could be critical to sensitive plants (lemon), and 10 ppm for semi tolerant plants (mustard, radish).
