I want to find the old Boraxo, but it appears that no one makes it. The Boraxo now is less powerful. Does anyone know how to make a similar product using borax and another ingredient? Thank you.

I have mixed Ivory Snow (laundry soap) and Borax to refill my container. I don't know if it is as strong, though.
Here is a recipe for a general purpose cleaner. 1 tsp borax, 1/2tsp washing soda(not baking soda), 2 tsp vinegar, 1/4tsp dish washing liquid, 2 cups hot water. Combine all ingredients. For a more pleasant smell use lemon juice instead of vinegar. Put in small spray bottle. Washing soda can be found in the laundry section of grocery store.
You can buy Borax at wal mart by the detergent it is usually on top shelf or on the bottom it comes in a green and white box hope this helps
