Hi all, It seems difficult to find 20 Mule Borax brand here but I manage to find the brand Three Elephant Borax. My question is will it be ok to substitute the 20 Mule with Three Elephant Borax? Are they the same in terms of effectiveness? Hope to hear from you soon so that I can start treating my poor dog. Thanks in advance. https://www.earthclinic.com/pets/dog_mange_cure.html#TEDS

I bought mine at Home Basket Manila www.homebasketmanila.com. They are located in QC. I believe they have an online shop.

Just recently moved to the Philippines and can't seem to find any BORAX in my home town. Bill.. I noticed you live here and wondering if you can help me locate it. I want to use it as an termite insectiside vs. Chlorpyrifos. Borax supposdly is less toxic and I already have an auto-immune disease.

Thanks, Eric.

Hi Eric...Well, I've lived in SF same as you for five years now, and I couldn't find any borax -- not even 20 Mule Team Borax. But you can also purchase something from the hardware stores here called ALHPA BORAX(made in the Philippines) which is used in welding as a flux. I stumbled across this in a hardware shop in Clark(Angeles) on Marcos Highway near Fields Ave and bought a tin quite cheaply. However, I wouldn't take this form internally, because it may contain impurities such as Ammonium Chloride. But if you're going to use this against ants/termites and insects(mixed with sugar) -- it should be very effective.

If you still want to buy the borax for internal use, I managed to buy a large amount recently in Bangkok, Thailand in Rajdamnoen Rd. The directions to the chemical shop -- Vidhyasom Ltd. -- in Bangkok are given here in one of my previous posts on Earth Clinic's "where to buy" page - see Where to Borax in Thailand

Regarding your auto-immune problems, I have helped several people locally who had arthritis, gout, and diabetes with a remedy which is quite easy to make. Check here for instructions for the remedy:

Bill's Herbal Remedy

This remedy is a very efficient remover of stones -- from gallstones to kidney stones -- from the body and is therefore very effective at removing excess calcium from the body which tends to be acidifying, and is therefore good for muscle aches as well as good for the heart. This remedy is also acts a tonic and protective for the liver and kidneys and is very safe, I take it regularly on a monthly basis.

I live at Acupulco Beach very near SF airport and live in the same compound as Jochen's Restaurant along the same road to Sunset Bay Resort which you might know.

I just found some Borax Decahydrate in Makati, from this store called Ritual. Its an all natural store that sells organic coffee, cacao, sea salt, etc... So I would presume that their Borax is also good quality. I've been using it in my bath & facial wash, and its not as drying to my skin as I feared ( given some of the feedback here). I'm still contemplating whether or not I will use it internally :)

Ritual store is in a building called The Collective.
