    After following a link from another thread (sorry but I can't remember which one :o) I've just taken delivery of 5 boxes from the carbolic soap company and as I know a fair few people are having difficulty sourcing this now that Boots is no longer selling items for home cleaning (or so I was told by an assistant last week) I thought a link might help someone who is struggling to buy borax locally:-


    This is a wonderful site - sell loads of useful stuff......Borax, Reckitt's Blue, Lifebuoy Vinolia, Washboards, Dolly Pegs to mention a few items and delivery/customer service is excellent.

    Hope this helps someone

    I get it in Tesco or boots if that's any help.
    Life is too short to waste a minute of it complaining about bad luck. Find joy in the simple things, show your love for those around you and be grateful for all that you have. :)
