20 Mule Team Borax detergent booster review and giveaway


Laundry is part of life.  If you want clean clothes and linens then you have to wash them.  So how do you make the most of your laundry time? 

 You get a little help in the laundry room.  No I am not asking you to go out and pay someone to come and do your laundry.  I am talking about a little help from a chemical that your grandma probably used, Borax.  This little natural accruing chemical is strong and can do mighty things. 

 I add about ½ cup of the powerful 20 Mule Team Borax to my liquid purex in the washer machine.  Not only does it eliminate odors, but it's an extra stain fighter as well.  With three active kids I need all the help fighting stains I can get.  Borax may be strong on stains, but it is also gentle enough to be used on dedicates too. I add ¼ cup borax and 2 tablespoons of my regular liquid delicate detergent.

Did you know Borax can be used in places other than the laundry room.  Because it is great at neutralizing odors I add a little power borax and water to my plastic garbage bins to clean and eliminate smells.  It is great for getting rid of diaper smells too.

Another place that odors can linger is in the bathroom.  I sprinkle ¼ cup borax in my toilet bowl and leave it for 30 minutes then brush it with a toilet brush.  Not only does it  clean and disinfect the toilet bowl, but my toilet brush is clean as well.  You can also use it on porcelain or fiberglass surfaces too.

When I was younger I thought I would never be like my grandmother, but here I am using the same detergent booster that she use, borax.  I guess my grandma knew more than I thought she did; at least more when it came to laundry.

Did you know 20 Mule Team Borax is also formulated to work in both traditional and High Efficiency (HE) washers. 


 I highly recommend making the switch to adding 20 Mule Team Borax to your laundry detergent.  I know my family and I are glad we made the switch.
