Sometimes the simple, old-fashioned ways of doing things are still proven to be the best ways. For example, many of us would probably agree that a hearty, home-cooked meal like mom used to make is one of our favorite things. There’s also nothing like sitting around a fireplace or campfire, chatting with friends and family like they did 150 years ago. And when it comes to cleaning, few things are more effective or versatile than plain old borax. It’s been around forever, but it should always be around your home. Let’s take a look at 12 reasons why.
1. Ant Killer
If you have a problem with ants around your house, you can make your own ant “bait and kill” using a mixture of borax, sugar, and some other ingredients (there are different variations of the recipe). The ants love the sugar, so they come after that, but also end up eating the borax and taking the mixture back to the colony with them.
