Borax: To Be Used with Care

Originally uploaded by although
Even though I don't suppose that any of you have been eating borax out of a box with a spoon, I think that some cautions are in order, since I have recommended its use. See this article here. While both baking soda and borax are natural products, borax poses some real dangers and must be handled with care. Here is the danger fact sheet from a distributor.

A thank you to
scpgt for sharing this photo of an abandoned borax mine on flickr.
