are they the same?

Submitted by Clayton on 1/18/1999. ( )

I was just wondering if Borax and the preservative they sell,(such as Bess Maid) are the same thing? Or do the presevatives have somthing else in them? I dont want to start somthing about tanning vs. powder, I am just curious what the difference is.
Thanks, Clayton

Hey Clayton, Borax , I'm sure is a main ingredient in dry preservative,but it also has some other chemicals in it. Some of them contain boric acid and one I know even contains pepper. Bob C

Clayton, Didn't we go through this before? Please dont call me Mr. I feel old enough as it is.Bob is just fine, though I do appreciate the respect. As far as the pepper goes, someone probably thinks it may deter bugs.Who knows they may be right. BOB C

thats the point!!!

they might as well put ketchup(catsup) and mustard in it too, the stuff doesnt do anything more then flint dry a skin. Yes, I will admit I've seen some nicely mounted heads with it, but not because of it. Just think how nice they would do with real tanning. I can understand their point, though.
