What is BORAX?
Borax (sodium borate decahydrate) was first discovered over 4,000 years ago. Typically found underground, it has been mined outside of Death Valley for commercial sale since the 1800s for use as a cleaner, fungicide and disinfectant. Used in hot water, borax cleans and bleaches through a chemical reaction in which water molecules are converted into hydrogen peroxide. Combined with washing soda (sodium carbonate), a naturally occurring alkaline valued for stain removal and as a hard water fighter, it is a natural cleaning powerhouse.
