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 [[Leviathans]] 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. Weaker Leviathans appear to take longer to heal, whereas the Leviathan leader, [[Dick Roman]], had shown higher resistance to borax, healing his burns near instantaneously after exposure, treating it as more of a nuisance than hinderance.
