      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.
