An effective and environmentally friendly laundry additive
Dri-Pak now manufactures Borax Substitute in place of Borax. Borax Substitute has many of the same properties as the original Borax. It is ideal for use as a laundry additive. Borax Substitute's odourless crystals work particularly well when added to non-biological powders, as they soften water and have a brightening action that delivers cleaner clothes every time! It is so effective it can even be used on a lower temperature wash, making it extremely environmentally friendly!
Borax Substitute in the wash
The various uses of Borax Substitute include:
- Stain remover. Packed with natural cleansing agents, Borax gently removes stains from clothes and fabrics. Dissolve one-third of a 500g packet in a bucket of warm water to use as a pre-wash soak.
- For difficult stains, make a paste with Borax Substitute and some water and apply it directly to the stain before washing as normal.
- Add two tablespoons of Borax Substitute to your detergent drawer and wash as normal.
- Money Saver. The water softening action of Borax Substitute means less detergent is required per wash load.
