I have used Borax in my laundry for years but never dreamed it could be used for so many other things. I have started soaking in really hot water, as hot as I can stand, with about a cup of Borax and a cup of Epsom Salt... sometimes 1 1/2 cups each. My reasoning behind this was to detox, right now I cannot wrap my head around ingesting Borax... I have IBS and toxins tend to build rather quickly in me, but let me tell you... the next day WOW! Let me just say, it has been a very long time since I have felt this empty. Oh and my skin is so soft.
