20 Mule Team BORAX Review & Giveaway

I have used Borax in the past and I knew it could be used as a Laundry Booster and as a cleaner, but I didn't really know anything about it or what exactly it was.
 
20 Mule Team Borax is 100% natural mineral found in the earth. It is produced by the evaporation of seasonal lakes. Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried, & boxed. There is nothing added. It will naturally soften your hard water to improve you laundry detergent's power, and it helps keep stains from being re-deposited onto clothes.
 
I like using Borax in my laundry, and to get stains out of my carpet. My kids like to use Borax to make goop, and to form crystals. It can also be used to clean your garbage disposal and toilet bowl.
 
~~Giveaway~~
I have 3 coupons valued at $3.50 to giveaway to 3 of my readers from the United States. Enter the Rafflecopter below.

we use borax all the time, being on well water, you need a boost in the laundry

I read the history blurb about their name... very interesting

Why 20 Mule Team?



Twenty-mule teams were a solution to the transportation problem of moving millions of pounds of borax from remote mines in inaccessible Death Valley to the railroad at Mojave.

I recently learned that borax can be used to preserve flowers. I think that's probably the neatest thing I've learned it can do and as soon as some of my pretty flowers start blooming I plan to try it out. Would love to win to try borax for this and also to use as a floor cleaner as I like that it's all natural and therefore safe for my pets to be around unlike so many chemical filled cleaners! Thank you. Dh_jax@yahoo.com

DH Jax said...

I learned that it can also be used to control fleas naturally which is another handy use for people like me with pets!
