    Fc and dry skin

    i was wondering if i use borates, would it make the chlorine/bleach easier on our skin. Seems like the water makes our skin dry. would the borax condition the water to make it softer?
    here are my numbers

    Both borates and salt will improve the water feel. Technically, neither one makes the water "softer", but either one will improve the feel of the water in a way that many people call "softer".
