Anyone here use a homemade flame retardant made out of borax, boric acid, and water? Is this an approved prevention method?

What is the formula or method for mixing these products? 50% H2O, 50% Borax, does anyone know the recipe is what I'm asking I guess?

I read 9 oz. borax powder and 4 oz. boric acid into 1 gallon of water.

I know with our fire marshall, unless you can show an MSDS sheet for it, it's not going to fly.
