1 pound Boric Acid
It may sound like a dangerous chemical, but boric acid (BA), derived from boron, is actually an antifungal cure-all of sorts. How so? Well, BA is the key ingredient in a variety of effective and affordable home remedies for some of the most common fungal infections, including athlete’s foot and vaginal yeast infections. And that’s not all.
Boric acid has many health and household uses. Some of the top ways you can use boric acid include:
1. Yeast Infections
Can boric acid actually work as a natural and effective treatment for a vaginal yeast infection? It sure can. Some experts now recommend vaginal BA capsules as a treatment option for vaginal yeast infections, particularly infections that can’t be cured by antifungal yeast infection medicines. (1) That’s quite impressive.
For yeast infections, boric acid is used as a suppository before bed for one to two weeks. The CDC reports that this regimen has clinical and mycologic (branch of biology that deals with fungi) eradication rates of approximately 70 percent. (2) A study published in the journal Diabetes Care has even found that BA vaginal suppositories were more effective against candida symptoms in diabetic women than an oral azole medication.
2. Roach Killer
Cockroaches can infest homes and restaurants. Not only are they unsightly and repulsive, but cockroaches can pose serious health risks to humans when they find their way indoors.
Cockroaches pick up germs on the spines of their legs as they crawl through decaying matter, which may be transferred to humans through food contamination, which can lead to illnesses such as E. coli and salmonella. In addition, cockroaches are linked to increased asthma and allergy attacks as their droppings, saliva and shedded skin contain potent allergens known to trigger allergic reactions and exacerbate asthma symptoms, especially in children.
Thankfully, boric acid is very effective when it comes to getting rid of cockroaches. These disgusting creepy crawlers succumb to BA simply by crawling over treated areas. The tiny particles of powder adhere to a cockroach’s body and are ingested as the roach preens the powder from its legs and antennae. Some BA is also absorbed through the greasy outer covering of the insect’s body. All species of cockroaches are susceptible to boric acid provided the powder is applied in areas where the roaches live.
Boric acid is also used to kill ants, fleas, termites, silverfish, beetles, wood borers and other parasites.
When it’s heavily diluted with water, boric acid can be used to create an easy and effective eyewash. Whether it’s a minor irritation or the more serious and contagious eye infection, a BA eyewash solution can help eye problems by treating any bacterial infection and soothing inflamed eyes. That includes relief of pink eye symptoms.
In case you’re doubting using BA in your eyes, even well-established eye washes list boric acid as one of the main ingredients. To relieve symptoms of eye irritations and infections, a homemade boric acid eyewash can easily be made carefully at home.
Some people recommend boric acid for use in home acne treatments. It also appears as an ingredient in some topical products that treat acne and other skin issues.
BA is naturally antibacterial, and since some acne is linked to bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes), it can help kill the bacteria causing breakouts. However, BA is not a foolproof acne remedy and can significantly irritate the skin. Many countries have actually outlawed its use in cosmetics. It also gets a very high (negative) score of 8 out of 10 for health concerns by the EWG.
5. Athlete’s Foot
Boric acid power can also treat fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot and toenail fungus. Just a few sprinkles of the BA powder in your socks or stockings can help clear mild infections and ease the itching associated with athlete’s foot. An added bonus: It can also neutralize the foot odor from athlete’s foot, providing relief for stinky feet.
Why is BA effective at treating athlete’s foot? The acid changes the pH of your skin and helps remove dead skin that feeds the fungus. BA is a seriously potent fungicide, and it often clears up athlete’s foot in cases where antifungal creams have failed.
6. Household Cleaner
Boric acid can also be used around the house as a cleanser, deodorizer, stain remover, disinfectant and mold killer. You can add boric acid to your next load of laundry for more stain-fighting power. You can also use it to clean the toilet bowl with very minimal effort required — simply put it in and wait 30 minutes.
