"Excellent Sodium Borate / Borax"
COMMENTS:  I use this Sodium Borate (also known as Borax) in powdered laundry detergent and dishwashing detergent. I have also used it as a buffer for liquid soap. I love that it is in convenient to handle and store 5 lb bags. The only minor issue I've come across is that some bags have a few big clumps. Not a huge issue, since they break up pretty easily by smashing with a spoon. But, it does take a little extra work to break them up. Of course, this can happen with any supply of Sodium Borate (especially in the cardboard box version you can pick up at the grocery store), so I wouldn't count it against this product too heavily.
