Interesting that it's for boric acid. Borax is an alkali, but for some reason, I think it breaks down into boric acid in water? Or something? The more I learn about it the more confused I am. I really wish they taught chemistry better in school as this would be really useful now.
From the first article:
Borax, or sodium borate, is an alkaline mineral salt.
Can anyone explain the difference between borax and boric acid?
