"The article starts with this expression: Not one single natural ingredient has me quite as verklempt as borax".
What is verklempt? I have never seen or heard this word.
verklempt. ver·klempt. adjective. The definition of verklempt is a Yiddish word that describes a person who is too emotional to speak. An example of verklempt is a bride unable to give a speech at her wedding reception because she's overcome by love and joy.
It has a 'bookend' partner in the word farklempt.
farklempt. adjective. overcome with emotion (usually sadness). Possible from Yiddish. Became mainstream as a result of a Saturday Night Live (SNL) skit with Mike Myers called "Coffee Talk." Oh, I'm getting a little farklempt.
