  • Placer mining operations 1960s
    I enjoy watching the television shows about mining in Alaska…. May I say they are nothing like this video shows about mining in the 60s. I know that I have said on some of these videos that my back aches watching people work so hard…. When I watched this one, I not only thought that […]

postheadericon Borax or Diatomaceous Earth?

Many years ago I went to a ladies house, she was a wildlife rehabilitator, she specialized in raccoons. She had many other critters in her house and she had no carpet what so ever. She only had wooden plank floors. It was as though she had not gotten around to putting in the actual flooring yet.

She had a strange substance on the floor that I just had to ask about she proceeded to tell me it was borax. She saw the puzzled look on my face and said you know… the horse team…”20 Mule Team Borax”.  OK OK I then knew what she was talking about.

She said with all those critters that she brings into her house she wants to keep the fleas and the bugs at bay as best she can. So she uses borax on the floor. It settles into the floor boards and works as a barrier against fleas and other bugs.

BUT… Her dogs and her cats and them too were all walking on this. They probably had shoes on but the dogs and the cats were getting this on their paws. They would be ingesting this when they groomed themselves… Not a good thing. She needed my DE,
It would have been perfect for her.

Diatomaceous Earth is an all natural  product that you can eat. I am sure you can not say that about borax.
