Anyone know where I can buy borax? And some other things...

Cuencano Friends, I'm looking for the borax powder that is used in laundry to whiten clothes, and it also kills bugs. I'm looking for it to make laundry detergent and sprinkle around the courtyard to kill the spooky black “grasshopper” thing.

Also where do you get diatomaceous earth - the minuscule coral that keeps bugs out of stored foods?

And has anyone found Assam Tea here or what would be a good substitute? It is known grown in that region of India, Assam, as a strong breakfast tea that has a malty flavor.

Thank you,

Rebecca Sterling
