Product Dose

Increases the stain-removal ability of your detergent: Pre-soak your laundry for 30 minutes in a solution of a tablespoon of borax per gallon of warm water or a 1/2 cup of borax in the washer in a pre-soak cycle. The alkaline pH of borax helps break down acidic stains, such as tomato or mustard. It works on grease and oil stains as well.

It is safe to mix with chlorine bleach and detergents, and it enhances their actions.
