Quick Reference – The Many Uses of Borax, and Why You Should Store Some

20-mule-team-boraxHere a nice article from PrepardnessAdvice.com on The Many Uses of Borax, and Why You Should Store Some. In particular, you’ll learn how to use it for pest control, as a homemade cleaner, and even as part of a candle wick (that one’s new to me). Just be sure to store it as moisture-free as possible because it tends to clump otherwise. Here’s the first part of the post:

“Sodium tetraborate decahydrate, commonly known as borax, is a natural mineral made of sodium, boron, oxygen and water is a good thing to have in your storage. It has many uses in your home and if kept in a dry location, borax’s shelf life is virtually unlimited.

Pest Control

-Keep roaches, waterbugs, and ants away by sprinkling a combination of equal parts all-natural borax and sugar.
-Keep the mice out by sprinkling borax on the floor along the wall.
-Kill fleas by sprinkling borax on your carpet. Leave it for an hour and vacuum it up thoroughly.”
