Miracle Block Recipe

- One cup Baking Soda

- One-half cup of Oxi Clean

- Pack into a silicon mold, then let dry
- Store in a cool, dry place
- Place one in washing machine on a normal cycle
Many commenters agreed that this laundry hack works great. “Carolina this works like a charm, thank you for always sharing,” stated one follower.
Some commenters warned that those that are prone to breaking out from harsh chemicals might want to stay away from the hack, however. “It’s worth noting that if you/family have sensitive skin then don’t use this or any other borax-related mixture,” one commenter warned.
Another noted that you should use precautions when handling certain cleaning products. “Please use gloves when handling borax,” one commenter stated.
And, one commenter noticed that while the cubes were “aesthetically pleasing” they weren’t totally necessary. “Why can’t I just put all [the] powder in the laundry without doing the process of [the] cubes?” Another responded, “So you don’t have to scoop it out, with cubes [it’s] just much easier, just grab one and [you’re] good to go.”
