Deadly ?- that is if someone ingests it..I'm presuming most
jewellers, and even novices aren't affine to drinking ANY chemical
or compound in the studio..At least i hope you all have at least
that much sense !
Yes,deadly. That is the I've got from internet Like I
wrote -in the same article-,the chemical is not the cause but more
the quantity you use.
Borax is/was used in the foodindustry placed onder E-number E-285. So
yes, people eat it.
About having sence. I can recall a case where someone placed a baby
in the microwave to warm it up after a bath.
She didn't knew that this was harmfull, the manufacturer had to pay
big money and had to change the labeling of their product. Thatmuch
for covering the expression "common sence".
Lots of people start with making jewelry without knowing about the
chemicals used in tthe manufacturing of it. I admit that I made the
same mistake. I saw a book named "Jeweller, be aware". That completly
changed my aditude.
Yes Mr Rourke, you're 100 percent correct with the expression "have
some sense people". For the ones which do not have thatmuch sense, the
word "deadly" may cause activating their brain to become aware of
what chemicals can do to you even with the use of borax.
Ganoksin is a worldwide common channel for jewelry The
we write will be used on this scale. I'm aware of that
and to keep Ganoksin as a very reliable knowledgeable source of
I like to be as complete as possible to my knowledge.
Better save then sorry.
Have fun and enjoy..... but be aware.
