I'm using borax in a cleaning product.

Question asked by Gail Ayres on Oct 2, 2018

I'm using borax in a cleaning product. This product needs the grit form the borax. This product also seperates. It settles to the bottom and becomes a brittle mantle of sorts, essentially the beginning of crystal formation which is an undesired characteristic I'm looking for. 

I may need to emulsify chemically and not with kitchen appliances. I did NOT heat the borax prior to adding to my product. If I do heat it, will I lose the grit and gain crystals?

Can anyone tell me all chemicals that would make crystals grow form Borax? Perhaps a replacement option would be good to know as well.

Thank you for your time.
