    Hello everyone.
    Weird title yes aha but I am just curious on what substitute I should use instead of borax and does anyone have experience with other substances?
    I know how to do it and have the materials ready it's just the borax issue.
    Thanks guys

    The main thing you have to account for is the swirls going in the opposite direction...

    Why use a substitute? I pretty sure you can find borax at bunnings... hell, i even think coles would have it too.

    I'm not sure how common Borax is down under, but wouldn't you just find it in the laundry/home cleaning department of your local store? Here in the US it's next to all the laundry soaps and detergents.

    Coles would be the best place and JazzHands is correct. It will be in the cleaning products isle, im pretty sure its near the draino.
