    Question Borax in Canada

    For the love of God...can someone please tell me where I can buy Borax in Canada. Specifically Calgary. I cannot find it anywhere in the NW!

    I got some for another project, but I think I got it from a grocery store, No Frills to be exact, if you guys have them out west.

    Default Borax

    I live in edmonton, AB, Canada and they have borax in safeway. Just ask the courtesy clerks. I Think its in the detergent area. Or even house cleaning section. Borax is so popular. The only down side is that they only sell the big box kind. So you might not need that much.

    Should be in the laundry section of most major grocer stores.

    You can try to buy 20 Mule Team Borax in the supermarket. Personally, I buy all my chemicals from a local chemical firm. I have about 2kg of borax for photochemical purposes.

    I have purchased Borax recently at my local Home-Hardware store. Give that a shot and see if it's there.

    I'm sure I bought mine at Superstore on Country Hills and Sarcee Trail. I don't live to far from there.

    Every pharmacy should have it. I bought mine at Walmart's pharmacy.

    I should have asked this before but I assumed you are using the borax for cleaning purposes, is that correct? If not, what is the planned intent? Depending on your intended use, purity may be an issue.

    I think I have only ever seen it in the laundry section.

    Usually by the boosters/additives like Spray & Wash, Oxyclean et al
