While borax is a natural ingredient, it's still toxic, and should be
kept out of reach of children and pets.
If you use it to make your own products, be sure to label the containers with
all of the ingredients, just in case there's ever an accidental ingestion. You may
know what's in your concoction, but other people in your household may not.
Treat borax with the same care that you would any other cleaning product,
and you shouldn't have any problems.
