i have used borax when making my homemade laundry detergent, for getting rid of ants… i mix borax with some tang. that way i can see how much i’m spreading… the ants like the tang because of all the sugar and carry it back to the nest. the other ants eat it and voila, no more ants. check out this link for many other uses for borax.

Vinegar is easy to make, from a variety of products. And you can make your own mother of vinegar too, although you don’t actually need it. All you have to do is add already-made vinegar to apple cider, in a proportion of 1:4. However, to make mother of vinegar, expose a mixture of one-half vinegar and one-half cider to a temperature of 80 degrees for a few days. The thin scum that forms on the surface is mother of vinegar.
