I mix Borax with sugar, the roaches love the sugar and the Borax kills them.

I bought the Borax at Walmart for 3.97ish, this is over priced you can get a better deal elsewhere.

I fell for the hype by Oxyclean and paid $18 for a large bucket hoping I would have fresh smelling laundry and sparking white whites. I was disappointed with the results.

One time I was shopping at local grocery store and I happened to see 20 Mules Borax on the shelf and was reading the box and curiosity was piqued and since it was only 3 dollars for the box, I thought no harm in trying in my laundry. Well, after several washes with noticeably fresh smelling laundry and definitely noticeable white towels with no bleach being used, I was sold on this product.

I highly recommend in using this product. Previously I also used baking soda with my laundry detergent to get the smell out and it did not work as well as Borax.

I use Borax as laundry booster with one of those ecogreen liquid laundry detergents.

I've used 20 Mule Team Borax for decades to be safely rid of fleas. I sprinkle it lightly over my carpets after every vacuuming. Walking on the carpet pounds it into the carpet backing. No more costly and toxic dips or sprays since I discovered this. I always have a box handy.

Borax might be old fashioned, but it is the best cleaner I have every used! And it is all purpose...you can use it in every room for practically every cleaning need including dishes and in your laundry! The nice thing about Borax is that it doesn't have any perfumes but instead naturally deordorizes while it cleans. I have used 20 Mule Team Borax also to remove stains from fabrics effectively. I have also used it instead of harsh cleansers for my sinks, stove, and countertops. Overall, I recommend 20 Mule Team Borax as an economical, higly effective, and natural cleaner.

Update:

I've been meaning to update this review, so that people don't feel like I tricked them. As my review below states, Borax worked when many other methods did not. But just as a full disclaimer, I must admit that the moldy smell did eventually come back to my clothes. When the Borax and detergent alone became insufficient, I added Oxyclean, and that helped for a while too. Ultimately, though, the smell just keeps coming back for me.

I think my situation is unique in that my entire wardrobe was contaminated for almost a year in the place I lived in, so if there is even a trace of mold left on a few items, they infect the rest all over again. Seriously, FIVE years later and I'm still dealing with it every day. Short of throwing out every article of cloth I own, I don't know what to do. The most sincere advice I can give is this: if you have something musty/moldy that you try to clean a few times and the smell persists, admit defeat, treat it like it's radioactive, and THROW IT AWAY IMMEDIATELY.

Original review:

100% recommended! Honestly, this stuff worked when NOTHING else did. If you have moldy smelling clothes, use this.

I lived in the foggy side of SF for a year and unfortunately had to store my clothes in a wooden closet that smelled musty. As a result my clothes became absolutely saturated with mold, and for the past three years I have been trying to get it out. Honestly, it started out slow and I tried to remove the shirts I smelled that were infected, but eventually it spread to my entire wardrobe.

I tried vinegar, of course, which everyone always suggests. It didn't work a lick, and it's ineffectiveness is part of the reason the mold kept spreading.

Call around to your local Walmarts to see which one carries this and you'll save on the shipping, plus it'll be cheaper. I just bought this for $2.98 at my local Walmart.

I use this in the dishwasher when I run out of my 7th Generation or Melaleuca. It's 100% safe. Contains no phosphates. I also use it to add to the water to wash my kitchen and bathroom floors. If you need your cleaner to have that "clean" smell, just add some essential oil to it. I've used lemon, tea tree oil, lavendar and eucalyptus. They all smell great and make me want to use the Borax all the time, and why wouldn't you! It's safe around kids and pets.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, it keeps the spiders, centipedes and other pests at bay too. Just sprinkle around your walls in the basement or where ever you have a problem.

It's amazing how our ancestors could use natural products to get the job done for so many years, and yet we find it hard to let go of the "new and improved" mindset that not only costs us more but also pollutes our world. Through the years I have learned of the many uses for borax, besides the commonly known laundry booster, and I will list a few of them here in hopes that someone might find them useful.

1. Frontloading washer deodorizer: I have a frontloading washer that I absolutely adore, but I find that sometimes it has a musty odor that transfers to newly cleaned clothing. This especially happens during the summer. I have tried leaving the door ajar when not in use, and I've also tried adding plenty of bleach to my white towels to "shock" it with no luck. There is even an expensive product that is being sold to deodorize your washer. I decided to try putting about ˝ cup of Borax into the washer before loading the clothing, and that did the job. No more odor. I only have to do this occasionally to keep things fresh. A cheap and easy fix, and it is also working as a laundry booster at the same time.

2. Flea killer: I lived in Miami for a couple of years and also in San Diego. People in both cities told me that they had the honor (just kidding) of being the "flea capital of the world." When I first moved to Miami, I overheard a woman in the grocery aisle explaining how she was finally able to cancel the twice-per-month exterminator visits to her home to kill all the fleas her little boy was allergic to. Her exterminator finally told her to buy some 20 Mule Team Borax and mix it 50/50 with table salt, sprinkle it all over her carpets, lightly drag a broom over it to help work it into the carpet, and then don't vacuum for at least 3 days.
