Best way to clean your tub 20 Mule Team Borax. Dude. This is the stuff. I actually tried borax third and had to stop so I had dirt left to try my other ideas on. That stubborn dirt and grime, impervious to bleach and every mainstream cleaner I tried, just melted away when faced with borax and a stiff-bristled scrub brush. And at about $5 for a big 5lb box, you can't get much cheaper!
Need to research if safe with pets/kids Another Pinner Said: Kill weeds by sprinkling borax where you've seen weeds previously appear.

Sprinkle some borax around the perimeter of the house too and you'll be free from ants and other intruding insects.
Ant Poison DIY. 1/3 cup sugar, tablespoon borax, 1 cup warm water. Mixed to dissolve. Soak a cotton ball in the mixture and art out for ants.
There is a commercial ant killer on the market made with the first bait that uses borax, and it REALLY works well, but at first it seems like you have more ants because they will flock to it. 2 to 3 days later they will vanish for good though... so dont panic just let them feed away.
