  1. \\well dude the nature of add chemicals and food have never agreed to the stomach in any form have it be by feed application, breathing steam clouds or even applying to the skin, and the FDA warns of multiply sclerosis when the body comes in contact with combination of genetic, environmental and infectious factors like the dirt intended to be cleaned the Borax(a chemical agent in the detergent) which occurs naturally in evaporite deposits produced by the repeated evaporation of seasonal lakes that make up the environmental factor and the actual consumer using this combination makes up the genetic factor and that makes for a occurring contraction of ms (multiply sclerosis), because the borax contains boric acid that acts as a stomach poison affecting the insects' metabolism, and the dry powder is abrasive to the insects' exoskeleton. so you can basically say your making an breathing human metabolism insecticide which could cause ms so this is not a good combination of factors to be used in the home or upon on the skin because your basically adding chemicals to the food. is your receipt edible? probably no, but the lemons are, and you say it smells good by by the time your senses catch up with the lemons they (the lemons) are chemically charged and inappropriate for human consumption. because food and chemicals do not mix!
