      Re: tip to get rid of ants

      I have used Borax to get rid of ants and roaches.
      I just sprinkle it around the edges of the insides of the cabinets and they all just disappear.

      Re: How to make arm and hammer washing powder.

      Could someone tell me if this dissolves in cold water?
      I only wash with cold so if it doesn't then I can't use it. I won't be saving any money if I have to use warm or hot water.
      Thanks for any...
