    Borax has a new look (White Box)

    Just picked up some Borax at Walmart and it has a new look. I had trouble finding it b/c I was looking for the 'original' style box but now it comes in this white box. I actually walked out of a Walmart without buying any b/c I thought they were out b/c I didn't see the familiar packaging. I almost walked out of the 2nd Walmart I went to until I decided to ask an employee about why they were out of it and then they showed me the 'new' box. I must have missed it at the first Walmart I went to.

    ETA: You can see the new packaging here on their website.

    There a 35 cent coupon also. With store doubling 70 cents is not bad. I think they triple up to 1.00.

    WIsh I would have seen this before heading to Wally world today to pick some up. I think I walked up and down the aisle at least 5 times before spotting it! LOL

    I was at Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Bj's today and couldn't find Borax at any of them.
    No pH up either...I was ready to go to the pool store after all that, maybe tomorrow.

    pH is holding at 6.8...a bit less than I like it to be

    My local Walmart was totally out of Borax. Some BBB'er must have beaten me to it. Went to Target and got 12 boxes at $2.99 each.
