    My two cats & I were being eaten alive by fleas from the nieghbors cat...a colleague with lots of animals asked if I had heard of 20 Mule Team Borax. Of course, I said but not in years. She told me it was an inexpensive remedy for the problem. Boy, was she right! I sprinkled it on the carpets and furniture. I climbed in the bed and watched the fleas attempt to jump out of the carpet... Later I vacuummed all areas. NO FLEAS! For a saftey measure, I repeated and vacuumed the next day! NO FLEAS ~ must have gotten the eggs, too! NEVER a Flea AGAIN! I keep a box on hand...

    DO NOT BUY!!!

    You can purchase this item for [$] at another big-store retailer. Plus, customer service was horrible AND they refused to price match. I will NEVER buy from Drugstore.com again!!!

        Comments about 20 Mule Team Borax Natural Laundry Booster & Multi-Purpose Household Cleaner, 76 oz:

        It does exactly what it says: it "boosts" the laundry detergent/soap in a wash load. It is non-allergenic. Sometimes I have had a lump of undissolved product in a load of laundry which can be very frustrating when done in a dark clothing load.

          Comments about 20 Mule Team Borax Natural Laundry Booster & Multi-Purpose Household Cleaner, 76 oz:

          I use borax along with super washing soda and laundry bar soap to make my own powder laundry detergent. I've been very happy with the results and can not see going back to Tide. I plan to start using it in some homemade cleaning products for the rest of my home.

            Many uses for this great product - I dump about 1/2 cup in the laundry for a brighter clean without bleach or expensive brighteners. For stains on carpet, make a little paste of white distilled vinegar & Borax, apply to the stain and let it dry completely. Then vacuum it up and the stain is gone!!

              Comments about 20 Mule Team Borax Natural Laundry Booster & Multi-Purpose Household Cleaner, 76 oz:

              Unfortunately I have discovered Mites, from a bird nest on the side of the house next to my bedroom and now in my bedroom and in my clothes so I went online to see what is suggested to wash my clothes safely to kill the mites and it was Borax. So far it has worked "Great" don't know why or how exactly but it works. Very Happy Customer, Thanks for the fast delivery.

                Homemade Laundry Soap
                1/3 bar Fels Naptha
                ½ cup washing soda
                2 gallons of hot water
                ½ cup borax powder
                ~You will also need a small bucket with a lid, about 2.5 gallon size~

                Grate the soap and put it in a sauce pan. Add 6 cups water and heat it until the soap melts. Add the washing soda and the borax and stir until it is dissolved. Remove from heat. Pour 4 cups hot water into the bucket. Now add your soap mixture and stir. Now add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of hot water and stir. Let the soap sit for about 24 hours and it will gel. You use ½ cup per load.

                  Comments about 20 Mule Team Borax Natural Laundry Booster & Multi-Purpose Household Cleaner, 76 oz:

                  I use Borax for everything from adding to laundry, soaking stains, to cleaning bathrooms and shampooing carpets; also, general household cleaning. The product is easy to use and has great cleaning tips on how to use Borax. The only small trouble about Borax is that it tends to make hard clumps and you have to break them up to dissolve.

                      Wonderful all-around product.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Product is wonderful, but should be better packaged for shipping.

                      The boxes ALWAYS arrive with borax leaking out of them.

                      This is a waste of product and can cause skin and respiratory irritation to postal workers who handle the package.

                      Please consider sealing the edges of the individual borax boxes with tape before placing them in a well-padded shipping carton.

                      Thank you.
