Homemade Flame Retardant

For a make-it yourself fire retardant mixture, mix 7 oz. Borax, 3 oz. boric acid, and 2 qts. warm water. Stir to dissolve completely. Either dip the fabric in the mixture or spray on to thoroughly saturate the material until it drips. This product will wash right out without damage to the fabrics so if you have to use a bedsheet for stage curtains, it won't damage them for at home use.

I first learned of this 'retardant' in the Army (some years ago) in the days when they had *day rooms* for R&R in miltary barracks. It was the only place one might find curtains. The curtains, when washed, would then be soaked in a solution of Borax and Boric Acid and then dried before hanging them up.
