Hi martha,

Thaks for stopping by! Use of the wet peels causes some stickness, it is better to dry them and make into powder.

I have used the natural shampoo for dry, brittle and coarse hair on dogs? Why is that borax has been used as one of the ingredients in making a shampoo?

Borax is alkaline and it neutralizes fatty acids in vegetable oils forming soap.
