You need to educate the teacher

She's not "tanning" anything with those two and unless he's trying to give the mount Montezuma's revenge, I'm not sure why the Epson Salts. Borax is a DRY PRESERVATIVE (DP) and DP would suffice for PRESERVING the skin if all the flesh was removed. Borax or DP are STAND ALONE dry chemicals. If you use them in any form and any amount, tanning goes out the window.
