Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate, a substance that occurs naturally in repeated evaporation of lakes. Borax Laundry Detergent Booster comes from California, where the largest deposit of borax was found in 1913.

One-half of a cup of borax added to laundry can help soften water, boost the power of the detergent, help keep stains from re-depositing on laundry, and prolong the longevity of clothing. It can be used as a pre-soak for heavily stained clothing or added directly to the wash load, along with regular detergent.

Borax Laundry Detergent Booster Borax controls smells in clothing, bedding and towels by inhibiting certain enzymes from producing odor. Along with laundry benefits, it is also a useful product for cleaning carpets, scrubbing pots and pans, and cleaning kitchen surfaces. It can be used to boost dishwasher detergent and to clean bathroom tile, grout and porcelain. It is safe for septic tanks, and its shelf life is indefinite when stored in a dry place.
