As a Purex Insider, I was sent a box of 20 Mule Team Borax to try. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own. 20 Mule Team Borax is a natural mineral from the earth. It's the common name for sodium tetraborate, which is a naturally occurring substance produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes. Once it's removed from the ground it's washed, dried, and boxed to sell. There are no other chemicals added. 20 Mule Team Borax can be used for a lot of things around the house. It naturally softens hard water, which protects your detergent, giving it more cleaning power; and all it takes is 1/2 cup. You just add it to every load, along with your regular detergent. It also helps keep stains from being re-deposited back onto clothes. 20 Mule Team Borax is good for baby clothes, laundry stains, toilet bowls, garbage disposals and drains, carpets and rugs, and the dishwasher. By using 20 Mule Team Borax around the house, everything will be cleaner and fresher!
I tried 20 Mule Team Borax this past week in our laundry and dishwasher. Since my 2 sons and I have allergies, environmental and skin, I'm always wary about trying a new thing in the laundry. I was happy that the Borax doesn't have a scent. I only tried this on our towels for this time just to see what we all thought. Well, the towels came out smelling fresh and clean, and no one is allergic to it! I will definitely try this again on the rest of our laundry in the future.
I also tried 20 Mule Team Borax in our dishwasher because we have hard water. It's very easy to use - I just put 1/4 cup in the bottom of the dishwasher and also used my regular detergent. The dishes sparkled more and didn't have the usual powdery feel when I take them out of the dishwasher. I will definitely keep using this every time I run the dishwasher.
I'm also looking forward to trying 20 Mule Team Borax in the toilet and garbage disposal. If you want to find out more about Borax, click on Where can I get Borax.
