Borax Substitute

A versatile and safe cleaner for a variety of cleaning tasks.

Borax Substitute is part of the 'Clean and Natural' range. The EU has reclassified the 'Borate' group of chemicals that Borax belongs to, so it is no longer available as a cleaning and laundry product. But fear not, Dri-Pak has a solution to keep all you loyal Borax fans happy. It still has all the same cleaning and laundry uses, but you get even more for your money!

Borax Substitute is a mineral compound, with the perfect pH for cleaning, and is gentler than Soda Crystals yet stronger than Bicarbonate of Soda.

Uses for Borax Substitute around the home include:

  • Multi-purpose cleaner. When mixed with water, lemon juice or white vinegar, Borax Substitute makes an excellent scouring agent, slightly more cleaning power than Bicarbonate of Soda.
  • Add Borax Substitute and White Vinegar to plug-holes to fizz away any debris.
  • Make your own bath salts by adding perfume and a drop of food colouring to Borax Substitute.
