The 20 Mule Team has been pulling it's weight this week. I always have Borax in my laundry room but this week I put it to work in the rest of the house, including the craft/science room, aka...the kitchen. I thought it would be fun and helpful to share some of the many uses for Borax. Best of all 3 of you will win a FREE box of Borax!!
DIY Crystal Snowflake Ornaments
Did you know you can make snowflake ornaments or pretty gift wrap decorations? This is such an easy craft and great to do with children.
Can you believe this was the first time I ever made one? I'll be posting a tutorial in July so you make your own while dreaming of Christmas and cooler weather.
Now lets talk cleaning tips:
Clean Windows and MirrorsTo get windows and mirrors spotless and streakless, just wash them with a clean sponge dipped in two tablespoons of borax dissolved in three cups of water.
Clear a Clogged DrainRather than use a caustic drain cleaner to unclog the clogged bath or kitchen drain, try this using Borax. Use a funnel to pour a ½ cup of borax into the drain, then slowly pour in 2 cups of boiling water. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes, then flush with hot water. Repeat for stubborn clogs.
Rub Out Sink StainsGet you sinks clean and remove those stubborn stains in your stainless-steel or porcelain sink. Make a paste of one cup of borax and ¼ cup of lemon juice. Using a cloth or sponge, rub it into the stain, then rinse with running warm water. Smile at your superb cleaning skills!
Clean Dirty Showerhead
Borax loosened up the hard water deposits that were clogging the small pin holes in the head.
See all the calcium and lime deposites from the hard water. They're like little pieces of rock and can totally block the flow of water.
Remove Mildew From FabricTo remove mildew from upholstery and other fabrics, soak a sponge in a solution of a ½ cup of borax dissolved in two cups of hot water and rub it into the affected areas. Let it soak in for several hours until the stain disappears, then rinse well.
Rub Out Rug StainsIt's easy to remove stubborn stains from rugs and carpets. First thoroughly dampen the area, then rub in some borax. After the area dries vacuum or blot it with a solution of equal parts of vinegar and soapy water and allow to dry. Repeat if necessary.
*Be sure to test on an inconspicuous corner of the rug before applying it to the stain.
I hope you've enjoyed the cleaning tips I've talked about today and try using your Borax Laundry Booster in new ways.
