Borax Solution

Prepared exactly the same as in the original procedure.

CAUTION: Although Borax (sodium tetraborate) is a common ingredient in laundry detergents and some cosmetics, there have lately been some reports of skin irritation when coming in contact with Borax. To be on the safe side, wear plastic gloves when preparing this solution.


1. Borax. You can (still) get this in the laundry aisle of any large supermarket. Yeah, this is the stuff that Ronnie Raygun used to hawk on Death Valley Days. :)

2. Ordinary tap water, filtered water, or distilled water.

Measuring cups, spoons, plastic bags, etc.


Make a saturated borax solution. Although you will use 7.6 ounces of this at a time, make a quart or so.

Dissolve a tablespoon or so of borax in a cup of warm water. Stir like a mother. Add borax until no more will dissolve. Pour off the solution into a jar and discard the sediment.

Repeat until you have a quart or so of solution.
