Are you sick and tired of using expensive and toxic cleaning agents that don’t even provide you the desired results? Then, after reading this article, borax is going to be your next favorite cleaning alternative!

Sprinkle a few tablespoons of borax into your toilet and let the powder work for the entire night. The next morning, scrub the toilet with a brush and then wash it off. It will shine like new!

Quite often, our kitchen utensils get burned from the bottom, and it becomes very difficult to clean them. Do not worry. Cleaning utensils won’t be a headache for you anymore! Just sprinkle a little bit of borax on the utensils, let it settle for some time and then scrub it with the utensil scrubber. The build-up will be gone soon.

4. Use It As A Bug Killer.

To use it as a bug killer, combine equal amounts of borax and powdered sugar and sprinkle this mixture wherever you spot the bugs. The bugs will get attracted because of the sugar and get killed.
For example, if you notice a lot of bugs under your fridge, take a paper sheet or a cardboard sheet and sprinkle this powder over it. Keep it under the fridge throughout the night. After two or three days, when you take this sheet out, you will notice dead bugs on it.

Borax is a great ingredient to remove molds too. All you need to do is create a thick paste of water and borax and pour this mixture on the moldy areas. Let it sit overnight and brush it away the next morning. Since it will form loose powder after drying, it will be very easy to remove.

6. Use It To Clean The Bed Of Pets.

We often forget to clean the beds of our pets, and this ignorance eventually leads to diseases. To keep their beds clean, take eight ounces of water and mix four to five tablespoons of borax. Mix it well and transfer to a spray bottle. Spraying it on the beds and the areas where they usually reside will keep the place clean and remove the stink. After spraying the mixture, scrub the area gently and then wipe it off.

7. Use It To Clean Your Comb.
