3. Make a General Household Cleaner

Borax is relatively inexpensive when compared to household cleaners on the market, so why not use it to make an economical all-purpose cleaner. Mix together two tablespoons of borax and 2 cups of hot water in a spray bottle. Use it in the bathroom, kitchen, and everywhere else that needs a good clean. If your kids have a habit of drawing on the walls with crayon, this cleaner will wipe it straight off. Make sure to patch-test your wall first to make sure paint is not removed. Diluted borax also makes a great de-greaser so your stove and countertops will come up sparklingly clean.
