  2. I have split feelings on borax. It is a natural product but it can be dangerous to have around your house especially if you have children or pets.

    I have some info that I’ve been putting together in the same fashion as the salt and baking soda articles.

    A few simple things for now:

    1. Borax can be used to enhance stain removal and bleaching of your laundry; just add a bit to your wash.
    2. It can be used as an herbicide for weeds
    3. It can be used as an insecticide; killing roaches, ants, and fleas

    Points 2 & 3 are the reasons I keep Borax around. I prefer to use a naturally occurring herbicide and insecticide.

    ** Remember, Borax can be harmful.
    Always use protective rubber gloves. Pregnant women should not use borax. Also keep out of reach from children and pets.
