Borax ?

Postby 10RDan » Thu Mar 21, 2013 7:47 pm

What is Borax called out here, Spain, and where am I likely going to be able to buy it ?

Thanks

I think it's bórax. You'll get it in a drogueria.

The EU have banned Borax so I doubt you will have much luck finding it. They sell a Borax substitute that does everything that Borax does EXCEPT kill ants. I wanted to use it in my home made washing detergent and had to change the recipe as I couldn't find any.

Ants don't like Aspartame, so you could put some of that down to deter them.

It's one of the ingredients in a "recipe" for making paint stripper.
