Borax is a naturally occurring mineral that is used in many cleaning products, from toothpaste to detergents. It is sold in powder form, and you can use it to make all sorts of natural cleaners, like Suzanne's simple laundry powder (see recipe in pictures). Borax boosts the cleaning power of the other ingredients, softens water and whitens whites. Sold in 500g compostable brown paper bags.
Making your own natural cleaning products is now the easiest thing in the world, just follow Suzanne's instructions! Suzanne Laverdière is the owner and master soap maker of Faveur Savons Bio in Montreal. She gave two great workshops at NU this year and we are big fans of her products. When you do your own, you know exactly what goes into your cleaning products.
