Well the internet is in an uproar about Boraxo being discontinued. Apparently this powdered hand soap was one of the last in a generation of powdered hand soaps with Borax, that was popular amongst mechanics and people who worked in shops where hands get very, very dirty and regular soaps just don’t do the job.
Always seeking to please, Worldwide Janitor has stepped up to ensure that the internet gets its industrial cleaning needs met. It just so happens that one of our favorite manufacturers, Crown Chemical, makes a great replacement product for Boraxo called Borolan.
Borolan is an industrial strength powdered hand soap for use in factories, automotive repair facilities, and many other applications where repeated cleaning of greasy, grimy hands is required. It contains a grease-cutting blend of borax and premium quality soaps. Borolan is very effective at removing soils while being mild to the skin. It is also non-clogging in drains and has a pleasant mint fragrance. We are selling it in 50 lbs pails at the present time.
I cannot remember a time when the smell of Boraxo Hand Soap wasn’t in my life as I had a father and two uncles who worked on engines and always cleaned up with Boraxo. Glad that a replacement has been developed.
whats the pricing on Borolan?
Hi, we carry it in 50 and 25 lbs pails. Pricing is here:
I would like to purchase this product but I can not store a 50 lb of it anywhere. I was using Borax for many years and then out of the blue it’s been discontinued. So is it possible you folks could break it down to 5 or 10 pound quantities and that way I can store some of it in my bathroom where it is needed. Thanks for your time.
Hi, we no carry Borolan in 25 lbs pails (https://worldwidejanitor.com/hand-cleaners-dispensers-c-152/bulk-hand-cleaners-c-152_81/borolan-powdered-hand-soap-with-borax-25-lbs-pail-p-52230), sorry that is the smallest we sell.
What is the best way to dispense borolan? Is there a special container to use in small quantities or do you just scoop it out of the pail? Thanks
Hi, I googled “powdered hand soap dispensers” and came up with a few options:
We repurposed grated parmesan cheese containers to dispense Boraxo. They work great and look decent at the sink.
