To dispel misinformation given by a contributor. There is nothing (no smells, fragrances etc) added to 20 mule team borax. The website of twenty mule team borax http://www.20muleteamlaundry.com/about/what-is-borax/ tells us:
"Absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, per-oxside, chlorine, or other additive chemicals."
It also adds
"20 Mule Team? Borax is 100% natural, and 99.5% pure (there is about a half of 1% of naturally occurring trace minerals). " So any impurities are just other "minerals" and not added "scents" or chemicals etc.
Just stay away from big industry "Borax Alternatives" which are NOT borax. Also stay away from items "containing borax" you want the real borax not some big soap companies "alternatives or concoctions contains it. you want Pure" borax, like 20 mule team or other "pure" ones.

I have definitely noticed a weight reduction since using borax 5 days now. My diet has actually gotten more diverse. I was on gluten free paleo diet for health reasons. I felt sick so I couldn't exercise. I'm eating like a kid again so I know it's not my diet causing weight loss. Boron has my back. Thank God for this wonderful mineral to counter act the toxicity of this world.
Decades ago I was informed by a nurse that douching with a tbl. of the borax used for cleaning laundry(don't want to mention the BN) and 8 oz. of warm water twice daily for just a few days works. Well it really does. I've been using this remedy for many years now with no adverse reactions. If you do it gently, it should not cause problems, just wash out the vagina. Very simple and super cheap!
