20 Mule Team Borax Review and Prize Giveaway **3 WINNERS**

Pin It

As a Purex Insider, I was recently chosen for another wonderful testing opportunity. This time it was for 20 Mule Team Borax! It’s been quite a while since I’ve used the famous 20 Mule Team brand, so I was happy to receive a little refresher on how convenient it really is to have this product readily available in the household.

Borax is not only a great stain-fighter for clothes, but it also has the natural ability to soften hard water. This in turn helps improve your laundry detergent’s effectiveness, so your clothes will be noticeably cleaner.


The many uses for 20 Mule Team Borax doesn’t just stop in the laundry room. It can actually be used in a variety of ways throughout the entire home. In fact, since Borax does a remarkable job at removing those pesky hard water minerals, you can even add it to your dishwasher to help reduce spotting and film that can often be left behind.



Borax can also be used as an all-purpose household cleaner. I particularly find it to be quite useful while cleaning the bathroom. It’s a great product for scrubbing tubs and sinks. You can also freshen and deodorize toilets by sprinkling a little inside the bowl and letting it sit prior to brushing.


The best part about 20 Mule Team Borax is that it’s actually a mineral from the Earth, so it’s 100% natural, and doesn’t contain any nasty additives such as phosphates and chlorine.

 

The possibilities and uses for this product are endless! I named a few ways in which I like to use it around the house, but Borax has also been rumored to be great at unclogging drains and repelling insects (or so I've read in several home magazines). I haven’t personally used the product for the latter, but if you have, please leave a comment. I would love to hear about your experiences!

You can find 20 Mule Team Borax in most grocery stores and even big-box stores such as Walmart. It is typically located in the cleaning/detergent aisle and usually costs anywhere from $2.50 to $3.50 for a 12 ounce box.

I'm such a fan. I started using it when I had my daughter.

That is really hard. First I use 20 Mule Team Borax to make my laundry detergent. It is amazing! My favorite household cleaning product is probably vinegar. I take the peels from my oranges or grapefruit and I put them in a jar with some white vinegar for a couple of weeks. I then strain out the vinegar into a spray bottle with some distilled water and use it to keep up with cleaning in the house from the counters to the windows. it gets a really nice citrus kick to it. Love it!

My favorite household product is actually Borax. I use it for everything from making laundry detergent to keeping the bugs under control in the summer. It's truly one of the most versatile products on the market!

I am a total advocate for vinegar! :-) That an baking soda are household staples in my home! They can used for so many things.



Thanks for the heads up on the orange peels! I love to simmer the peels on the stove to freshen up the house, but never thought about adding them to my vinegar spray. Great tip!

I have been using a lot of white vinegar for cleaning. I just heard white vinegar and dawn dish soap in the bathroom (tub) works great. Always looking for natural cleaning products!

House hold tricks? My best trick is the rare moments when I actually get some housework done.

I use Q-Tips to get to the nooks and crannies, and a soft toothbrush w/cleaner on it to get to the hard to reach places on wood design.

Kelly (Our Everyday Harvest) said...

I do the same thing for tiny crevices, etc! :-)

Mary T said...

My best tip is: when you get something out, put it away just as soon as you're done using it. That seems to cut down on clutter around here. Also, I like Mr. Clean erasers and 409 cleaner.

Kelly (Our Everyday Harvest) said...

I completely agree, Mary!!
