20 Mule Team Borax Review and Giveaway


Why has 20 Mule Team Borax been used in households for over 100 years? The answer is simple, because it works! As a Purex insider I have been given the opportunity to sample and review 20 Mule Team Borax. Let me first tell you that 20 Mule Team Borax is a 100% natural occurring mineral produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes. It is removed from the ground and then washed and dried. Nothing is added and it is boxed up. It is phosphate free, chlorine free and contains no other additive chemicals.

So many of us seem to be cursed by hard water (full of calcium and magnesium ions). These minerals prevent detergent from performing its fullest capabilities. 20 Mule Team Borax works to soften hard water which essentially protects detergents so that they do the job they were meant to do, clean our clothes and linens! It also helps keep stains from being redeposited back onto clothes during the wash cycle.

20 Mule Team Borax is simple to use. Just add 1/2 of a cup along with your laundry detergent. That's it, all of the rest is done for you. It is also useful as a household cleaner and deodorizer. For those of us who need a new dishwasher (yes me) it also works to help dish detergent work to get dishes and glasses shining clean.

Lately I haven't been able to do a load of laundry without using Borax! Having a messy 2 year old means a lot of messy laundry. We are also in the potty training process with Mini Me and 20 Mule Team Borax has really helped insure that everything comes out clean.
