Product Review – 20 Mule Team Borax

boraxA while back, I was sent a box of 20 Mule Team Borax from Purex Insiders.  Borax has been around for a long time, and is a 100% natural mineral used for cleaning.  It softens hard water, boosts your regular detergent, & can be used for a number of cleaning uses around the house.  You can also use it in a number of crafts as well.

My grandmother used Borax and swore by it.  I had never used it before aside from a few school projects, so I was eager to try it out.  The box arrived while I was on vacation & was waiting for me when I got home.  I immediately used it in my husband’s laundry.  His socks can walk themselves home at the end of the day, and they never really get clean.  So, I added ½ cup of Borax in with the load.  Not only did they come out completely clean, they also didn’t smell anymore.  After that, I started adding it to everything.  It’s really great for the towels since it gets the mildew smell out of them.laundrybooster

I’ve also noticed that the washing machine is also a lot cleaner inside too.  It also tends to get a bit musty from time to time, especially during the summer months due to the excess 100+ temp days we get.  I don’t have to run the Borax in an empty load…which is major improvement over using the Clorox Washing Machine Cleaner stuff.

Overall, I love 20 Mule Team Borax.  It’s tried & true, and doesn’t have a whole bunch of stuff added in it.  It’s inexpensive and really cleans your laundry.  It’s available at most stores (Where Can I Get Borax?).  It’s under $3 at WalMart.  You can get more info at the Borax website.

Borax provided a free sample of their product so I could review them.  However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.
