Borax powder is also known Sodium Borate. It is widely used as a preservative, emulsifier and even as a cleanser.
You can mix together 1/4 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup borax, 1/2 cup vinegar and 1 gallon of water to create a natural house-hold cleaner. To add a little fragrance to the cleanser, you can also add another splash of lemon juice or lemon fragrance oil, which will give the entire space a fresh smell. By using the borax as a cleaner around the house, it will clean out any bugs. It is also a very effective remedy to keep the cockroaches at bay. You can easily sprinkle the borax powder in the base of the room walls. Roaches breath through little slits in their skin called tracheae, so they easily pick-up the borax powder and begin hyperventilating. You can also use borax to get rid of the existence of fleas. Sprinkle the powder in small amounts on the carpets and start vacuuming it. Generally borax is recommended for light infestations. For more serious problems you should seek the help of a professional.
