Let’s talk about Borax!
Borax helps boost the efficacy of our soap-based products. Not to be confused with Boric Acid (which is a big no no), borax softens hard water, removes soap residue in clothes, and neutralizes odor because it prevents mold and fungi from growing.
Wellness Mama has a good summary of borax as well.
That said, some people are allergic to borax and will develop a rash on their hands if washing by hand. If you’re using a machine, no residual borax remains in the clothes as it washes out while boosting the efficacy of the soap powder. If you have extremely sensitive skin, we do make a borax-free laundry powder for such customers, where we use sodium bicarbonate instead.
