    The chemical in detergent that kills plants is called Borax which contains boron, or hydrated sodium borate. In small doses, boron actually assists sugar and nutrient transportation in plants. However, when a plant meets large doses of boron, it becomes overwhelmed and dies from a toxic reaction. Other chemicals contained in detergent that harm and kill plants are ammonia, sodium dodecyl sulphate, quanternium 15 and triethanolamine laureth sulfate.
