Homemade Boraxo Recipe

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.
