What is borax?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I keep seeign "borax" listed as an ingredient.
What is in it? I had no idea it was a natural product.
I have bought it, but I had no idea it was any more natural than Tide for instance.

Borax contains sodium, boron, oxygen, and water and is non toxic. Tide contains all sorts of hard to pronounce things.

It's Sodium Borate: sodium, boron, and oxygen, as Sharlla said.

Comes from the ground, which is why it's natural. But then so does petroleum...

DH says it can be used as a flux in soldering metals together.

He can look it up sometime what "non toxic" means in the case of borax. I certainly wouldn't want to breath the dust....
