About our boric acid

What's the purity of your boric acid?

The purity of our boric acid is 99.5%. This is a "technical grade" and is suitable for general household use. You can get a higher purity but for the uses we recommend it's not really necessary. It's also extremely expensive.

Storing boric acid

How do I store the boric acid once it arrives?

All our boric acid products are packaged in self standing, resealable, commercial grade pouches that are vacuum sealed. It will keep for years like this and you can store it anywhere and any way you'd like. Just remember to keep it out of reach of children.

There's a tear nick at the top, just below the vacuum seal, so you can easily open the pouch by hand. Once opened, expand the base to make it self-standing. There's a zip lock at the top to keep the contents safe in case you knock the pouch over. It also keeps it air tight to prolong its life.

You do not need a separate container. Our product is an all-in-one solution.

Where should I store my boric acid?

I keep mine on the top shelf of my laundry cupboard, just next to my washing powder. That way I know my children cannot reach it, while still making it easily accessible for me.

What if I my question is not in this list?
