Sandiver, or Salt-Of-Glass, is a species of whitish salt, that is separated from the surface of glass, while in a state of fusion. It is of a pungent, corrosive taste, and is employed by farriers for the purpose of cleansing horses' eyes.
This substance is said to be detergent, and is, therefore, occasionally applied to the human skin, for removing foul spots : it is also sometimes used as desiccative in ulcers, shingles, and similar complaints ; nay, it is even strongly recommended as a tooth-powder; though we believe it to be a very improper and hazardous dentrifice.
