      Susan,

      What you read is 100 percent wrong. Borax is not toxic and is a natural mineral from the earth. It constists of sodium, boron, oxygen and water.

      You may be thinking of boric which is an acid and is not the same as borax.

      Hello All,
      I read some where (maybe this group, I don’t remember) a recipe for
      homemade dishwashing soap. Equal parts washing soda and borax. So I did
      that and it seems to work pretty well.

      Then I read the other day that
      borax is extremely poisonois. Now I’m worried. Since my dishwasher isn’t
      the greatest at washing and rinsing I don’t want to be poisoning my
      family.
      Should I stop using it?

      What do you all think?
      Thanks allot………………Susan
