20 Mule Team Borax Review and Giveaway

When I was asked to review Borax through the Purex Insiders program, I jumped at the chance of trying something I had never tried before. Rich asked what it was and really I did not have an answer.  I knew it was something my mom used to use, but for what?  That is when I reached out to the Crumbs in the Couch Facebook fans who had high praises and many uses for Borax.  Between their recommendations, the information I was provided, and what I found on the internet I was ready to experiment with my Borax.
First off Borax is 100% natural.  It is a mineral from the earth that is washed, dried, and boxed with nothing added.  It is a natural softener of hard water, which exists in 85% of homes.  The 20 Mule Borax protects your detergent so that it is working at full strength. It also can remove stains so they will not settle back in.

Here is what I tried with the Borax:
  • Used it to help boost my laundry detergent.
  • Used a 1/2 cup to clean my toilets.
  •  Cleaned my garbage disposal.
  • Deodorized our trash can. 
  • Used it to help cleaner glassware in the dishwasher.
Other uses I want to try:
  • Homemade cleaner.
  • Fun slime to make with the kids.
  • Protect our homes from mice especially our farmhouse.  
This is a great product that is versatile as well as reasonable.  A little goes a long way!

I was given this to try through the Purex Insiders Program, but all ideas expressed are my own.

I have three free Borax product coupons to give away, try your luck!

  13. I used to use only cloth diapers for my kids. Pampers were just too expensive back then. One of the ways I found to keep them bright white was with 20 Mule Team Borax.
    I also lived in Okla, where there is an issue with roaches. We would sprinkle some around the baseboards and it helped control those nasty pests.
    I love Borax.
