Fuller's soap
        (Heb. borith mekabbeshim, i.e., "alkali of those treading
        cloth"). Mention is made (Prov. 25:20; Jer. 2:22) of nitre and
        also (Mal. 3:2) of soap (Heb. borith) used by the fuller in his
        operations. Nitre is found in Syria, and vegetable alkali was
        obtained from the ashes of certain plants. (See SOAP T0003467.)
