Detox 25 Borax to remove stains and control insect pests

Borax is a naturally occurring mineral salt.  This fine white powder acts as a stain remover and has disinfectant qualities as well.

Borax is useful for killing cockroaches, silver fish and ants, and although poisonous when swallowed,  is absolutely odourless.  This is in marked contrast to most insect sprays. 

Simply mix together equal parts borax and icing sugar as a bait, OR sprinkle borax powder in the back of cupboards and in cracks and crevices.  The borax will stick to the legs of insect pests such as cockroaches, ants and silver fish, the insects will lick themselves clean and then die.

About chemicalfreehome

My interest in chemical free living began in 1983 when I was accidentally soused in pesticide from an aircraft. I became seriously ill with life-threatening weight loss and severe pain; however, over a period of years I regained my health and gradually evolved a new lifestyle regarding the use of chemicals in our home. When I realised that other people were concerned about the effects of chemicals on health I decided to turn a negative into a positive and so wrote my best-selling book 'Chemical Free Home' published by Black Inc in Melbourne. I have been amazed by the response of all age groups, as everyone is affected by chemicals to some degree, and everyone benefits by reducing their use. In this blog I hope to suggest ways in which you too can create a healthier home environment.
