Borax Substitute, by Dri Pak
Borax Substitute is a mineral compound, with similar pH to borax, making it ideal for cleaning and laundry. It is stronger than Bicarbonate of Soda. Totally plastic-free, coming in a cardboard box, It is a non-toxic option for green cleaning your home.
Usage & Specifications:
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? It's ideal for cleaning shaving brushes.
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.
I use Borax as an alternative to laundy bleach / whitener. I either sprinkle directly on to the stain and fold the material on top of it, or sprinkle directly into the washing.
Do NOT use borax substitute around food, keep it out of reach of children and pets, and make sure you rinse it out of clothes and off surfaces before use.
If you suffer with sensitive skin it is advisable to wear gloves.
