Borax is the only safe element which a very small amount will interact with Fluoride and NEUTRALIZE IT. Why Fluoride is in are drinking water, who knows. Fluoride was NEVER SAFE for human consumption ever..... Read the warning on YOUR tube of fluoride toothpaste. "swallow ONE drop" "call poison control" I use Borax as part of water filtering process. They are adding chemicals in bottled water now. I couldn't find Absopure. and decided I'll just do my own.. and Fluoride free. Recipe on you tube
Yes it is 20 Mule Team Borax, and is safely used internally when properly diluted. We take 2 tsp. of the following solution daily:
mix 1 teaspoon borax with a quart of water. It's about as toxic as table salt, just use responsibly.
My pug, Dottie, gets a "good rinse" with Warm Borax solution before she's done with her bath. No one fleas, no itching, And she smells good.
