I'm interested in trying this out, as I've seen in menioned in this forum, but couldn't find dilutions/applications. Where do you use it? Does it help in showers w/ light soap scum and mineral deposits, or bathroom odors? Does it help cut down on germs? Also, should I protect my hands?<br><br>
Thanks!<br>

I'm with charmarty - just on laundry. It's ok to get on your hands, just wash them off afterwards. It gets my laundry cleaner and helps prevent the powdered soap from sticking to the clothing. It doesn't disinfect or anything, but it helps like soap to clean in a natural way. If you look at a box of it in the grocery store, it gives a bunch of uses like:<br><br>
cleaning gently:<br><br>
baby clothes<br>
fine delicate clothing<br>
china<br>
fiberglass<br><br>
deoderizing garbage pails and absorbing odors in the fridge<br><br>
making porcelaine shine

Thanks everyone! I cleaned my bathroom with it, not sure if I'll do that all the time but I ended up filling my sink with hot water and adding a hefty shake of borax. I used that to wipe everything down: tub, sinks, counters....I only had to use something different (my Dr Bronners/baking soda scrub) for the shower.<br><br>
I'm a little disheartened though because my shower door has a rubber strip at the bottom that has orange mold stuff trapped in it and I can't get that out. Hubby can't detach it for me either without ruining it probably. I tried scrubbing some GSE up under there with a toothbrush and still can't get it out. But that's another thread entirely <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br><br>
So, the verdict: Borax made my bathroom sparkly and shiny, and smelling fresh (except for that stinky shower strip!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
