Product Description

What Is Borax?

Borax is the short name for sodium borate decahydrate – a white, odorless, naturally occurring salt compound that forms as residue on dry lakebeds. It’s been around for thousands of years, but borax was a rare and expensive substance until it was discovered in California’s Death Valley, not long after the gold rush of the mid-1800s. Once it was mined and hauled to market in large quantities, local households quickly appreciated its soapy, water-softening properties. Now that we’re in the 21st century, there’s no excuse to ignore this valuable and economical do-it-all powder.

How Does Borax Clean?
When it’s mixed with water, it reacts with some H₂O molecules to form hydrogen peroxide (H₂O₂), which is an antiseptic and bleaching solution. The warmer the water, the better the reaction, and the solution maintains a stable, alkaline pH for optimal cleansing. Borax is the do-it-all compound that every home pantry should keep in stock.
