Dear Becky: In a borax added to a 1% hydrogen peroxide remedy for mange, it will cause the fur to become orange after a couple of applications. The effect is not permanent, as new hair will grow to replace them, but it won't cause the fur to be white as 1% H2O2 is not strong enough. However, if some people do not desire the slight orange tinge on the hair, then another weaker formulation, between 0.5% for example won't cause this discoloring issue, but its effectiveness in mange is also reduced with the lower concentration.
