20 Mule Team Borax Review and Giveaway!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review 20 Mule Team Borax.  Wow, that is a name that I had not seen or heard of in a while, however, it is absolutely still around and works fantastic!  A friend of mine was at the house last week and saw the box and it literally stopped him in his tracks.  He had to tell stories about his parents and grandparents using Borax and didn't know it was still around.
I think that most everyones grandma or mother had Borax in their laundry room.  I can remember that mine did.  I was surprised to learn some of the ideas that Borax can be used for: 
  • cleans
  • deodorizes
  • disinfects
  • softens water
  • repels cockroaches and other bugs

  • I have been using it in the laundry as a detergent booster.  I have a new HE washer that has the booster setting and I was excited to try it out (both the Borax and the setting).  I have seen a positive, noticeable change in the way the clothes have been coming out of the laundry, and there is no 'extra' smell from the Borax, just the fresh scent of the laundry soap. 
    20 Mule Team Borax is not only a laundry booster, but it is a multipurpose household cleaner as well. 20 Mule Team Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate, which is 100% natural mineral from earth.
    Absolutely nothing is added to Borax, including no phosphates, chlorine, or other additive chemicals. 20 Mule Team Borax naturally softens hard water to protect your detergent so it can maximize cleaning power and help remove stains and keep them from being re-deposited back onto clothes.

    20 Mule Team Borax is most often used as a laundry booster, but it is extremely versatile and effective as a household cleaner. In addition, 20 Mule Team® Borax can be used in many different ways to reduce and control odors.
