How do you use borax to get rid of cradle cap?

I am a sixty-three year old Grandma and I used Borax on my children to clear up Cradle Cap and my Grandchildren. My daughter thought it was some sort of 'old-wifes tale' so I had to treat my Grandchildren on the days that I looked after them and let her think it had cleared up on its own. Anyway all I do is make a paste with the Borax and a bit of water. Wet their heada little bit then Massage it into the Cradle Cap for a couple of minutes or if they get impatient leave it on their heads for a couple of minutes then wash it off with your ususal shampoo. That's it! If it dos'nt clear first time, just repeat the next bath time. It works better than all these things from the chemist.

Homemade Dishwasher Detergent?

Dishwasher detergent can get expensive. Homemade dishwasher detergent is cost-effective and often works better than store brands. Simply mix one cup of borax, one cup of baking soda, one-half cup of kosher salt and 15 packets of unsweetened lemon- or orange-flavored drink mix. Store the mixture in a container with a tight lid and shake before each use. Use one tablespoon of detergent for each load. To prevent cloudiness, add white vinegar to the dishwasher's rinse-aid compartment.
