Sodium Tetraborate

From homemade detergents to ant killer, Borax (also known as sodium tetraborate) has become a staple for the do-it-yourselfer interested in finding their own all-natural solutions to everyday obstacles.  We are now able to offer to our loyal customers the highest quality Borax at prices only available at Bulk Apothecary!

Dissolve Borax and sugar into some boiling water to make an effective ant killer that takes advantage of Borax’s ability to completely dissolve in water. The web is full of recipes for making your own dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent/laundry detergent booster as well as other niche applications for Borax that you would never think of.

Borax was first widely available when hauled out of the dry lake beds of Nevada and California by a large team of Mule’s, thus making it cheap and plentiful enough to be widely available for use. Try mixing 1 tablespoon of Borax with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and placing in your dishwasher’s detergent compartment. The mild abrasiveness of both ingredients will blast away tough deposits on your dishes and save you money. Borax is one of the most commonly used ingredients in detergents used in the detergent manufacturing industry today. Experiment and find an online recipe for making your own laundry detergent that will soften and clean clothes as well as the expensive store bought brands. Mix with lemon juice to create a safe, inexpensive rust remover.

Want an extremely effective window cleaner? Try mixing Borax with ammonia and water and take advantage of Borax’s mild abrasiveness to clean windows to a sparkling shine. Drop 3 tablespoons into your garbage disposal and let it set for 15 minutes to deodorize and clean. Simply mix with warm water and use to rinse out the inside of your refrigerator to remove musty/moldy smells. Soak candle wicks in a mixture of Borax, salt and water to reduce smoke and ash in your homemade candle creations.

Add 1 ½ cups of Borax to every 5 pounds of kitty litter to help deodorize and freshen your cat’s litter box. Borax can be used to neutralize urine odors. Indeed the potential uses for Borax around the home are limitless. Its industrial use is equally as astonishing. According to Wikipedia it can also be used for:

  • Ingredient in enamel glazes
  • Fire retardant
  • Anti-fungal in fiberglass insulation
  • Anti-fungal foot soak
  • Treatment for Thrush in horses
  • Curing agent
  • Buffering agent to control PH in swimming pools
  • Coloring fires with a green flame
  • Forge welding

    Great for my Taxidermy Studio

    Posted by James L. on 11th Sep 2018

    Received the product without a hitch via Fed-Ex ground. This product is comparably to the Mule Team borax sold in stores except it is a little bit finer in texture. Very pleased and will order again.

    Can't Beat The Product Or Price

    Posted by Clif on 7th Sep 2018

    I was pleasantly surprised (having been prepared to take a hammer to a 50lb block) when the bag did not contain a single clump. The quality of this product exceeds the name brand box at much better price. Unfortunately it seems to be a popular item and I now must wait it to be restocked before ordering more.

    Multiple uses indoors and outdoors.

    Posted by Rebecca J Williams on 9th Aug 2018

    I use primarily to clean and deodorize laundry and tough household jobs. Very effective at ridding your home of ants, and outdoor pests. Myself and my neighbors are having a daily struggle with ants. The ant baits are not working. This is the only thing that has worked for us.

    Excellent organic herbicide

    Posted by Dom on 26th May 2018

    Have used Borax as an organic herbicide. It is very effective in spring,and grass recovers after a few weeks. Bulk Apothecary unit price is very competitive when large quantity is needed.

    I really like this product

    Posted by Elisemaria on 3rd Feb 2017

    I use this with my bath salts. Also, have taken it internally in small doses. Borax helps to rid flouride and is good for bone growth.

    Great for laundry

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Dec 2016

    This is my second time purchasing. It works well at a good price. I love being able to order online and pick it up in person. Customer pick up was even better this time as they had a desk and a very kind woman in the back area and I had the opportunity to purchase some overstocked items at a discount. Will be back to replenish as needed.

    Great deal

    Great deal on a great product. No need to buy borax anywhere else. Especially the over-priced Mules.
