Hi there - we are beginning Bill Thompson's Fungal Kill Proticol from the Killing so Sweetly book. I ordered simple Borax - sodium tetraborate - from an internet vender. What I just received was Organic Borax Pentahydrate. Is that the same thing? and is that safe to take in regrd's to Bill Thompson's reference to "Borax" Please advise - thank you!
The thread at this link should help answer your question.
The borax powder I purchased is Milliard brand and the description is Sodium Tetraborate Pentahydrate Na2B4O75H20. Is this ok to use instead of the 20 Mule Team?
In the United States...and possibly elsewhere, Borates...Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate is commonly labeled Tim-Bor. It's as pure as it gets...and as it's labeled/used for many items such as controlling decay in wood to killing Termites...as well as a laundry additive and the many uses mentioned on this site...if you're worried about fragrance, you can purchase it from sites that don't store it/ship it next to the laundry soap. One that I'm familiar with is http://www.loghomestore.com/1267-timbor-borate-powder.php where you can get 1-1/2 lbs for $11.95 US. Their market is the Builders who use big wood...Timbers and Logs, however it's the same stuff.
