  1. Since I would be using a very small amount of borax the toxicity would not be an issue as the levels that impact as toxic are far far larger: Boric acid and sodium borates have been considered as being "toxic to reproduction and development", following results of animal studies with high doses. Experimentally, a NOAEL (no observed adverse effect level) of 17.5 mg/kg bw/day has been identified for the (male) reproductive effects of boron in a multigeneration study of rats, and a NOAEL for the developmental effects in rats was identified at 9.6 mg/kg bw/day. These values are being taken as the b
  2. Thank you John and Chenbeier. Why would it be less toxic. Borax is cheap here in the USA.
  3. Thank you very much, what if I used sodium bicarbonate instead of borax?
  4. Thanks, I thought that it would - I would like to know what the resulting chemical reaction would be other than raising the ph
  5. thanks for your advice, but I specifically want to know what borax would do.
  6. Are there any known chemical reactions using borax to alkalize a weak solution of sodium silicate and sodium bisulfate?
