Hi there, I usually don’t post, but had to repond to this one, borax is
INDEED poison. If you look at the bottom of this
https://www.icgov.org/documents/altcleaningsolutions.pdf link about
alternative cleansers, you will find that it is also caustic! It does work
wonderfully, just use good judgement.
And, as with any chemical keep it away
from the kiddos & pets. https://infoventures.com/e-hlth/pestcide/borax.html
<~~~This site give a chemical breakdown. It is also used as a pesticide.
