Borax or sodium borate is a compound found in most cleaning supplies and is a salt of boric acid. It's use as a weapon against the [[
Leviathan]] came upon happenstance , when [[Sheriff Jody Mills]] spilled a bucket containing the cleaning solution, which dripped through the floor boards of [[Rufus's Cabin]] onto the Leviathan, [[Chet]], causing an acidic reaction to his body. The effect, however, is only temporary, but can allow for enough time to get close enough and decapitate the Leviathan. The Leviathan leader, [[Dick Roman]], however had shown higher resistence to borax, healing his burns near instantaneously after exposure.
