  • Multi-purpose cleaner - Mix it with some water to form a paste. This makes it an excellent scouring agent that offers more cleaning power than bicarbonate of soda. Why not try it on the kitchen sink? 
  • A water softener to help keep your washing machine clear of limescale.
  • To make your own bath salts, simply add some perfume or essential oils and a drop of food colouring to some Borax Substitute.
  • Borax Substitute was featured on BBC's 'Shop Well for Less' programme in August 2019 being used to clean carpet stains. In this instance, it was formula milk spills.
