Borax Review & Giveaway

Being a Purex Insider I get to try out alot of great products from Purex and I just received a awesome product that we already use in our household that I get to share with you all. It is Borax. We have hard water here so we need a boost to help soften our water a bit to make clothes brighter and cleaner.

Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate: a naturally occurring substance produced by the repeated evaporation of seasonal lakes.

20 Mule Team Borax is 100%natural mineral from the earth. Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried, and boxed for consumers.

Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate: a naturally occurring substance produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes.

Absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, chlorine, or other additive chemicals.

Over 85% of homes have what most people call "hard water." Hard water is defined as water that contains calcium and magnesium (ions).

When you add detergent to hard water, some of the compounds attach to calcium and magnesium granules that settle on the bottom of your washing machine, eventually retreating down the drain without actually cleaning your clothes. What a waste of detergent.

20 Mule Team Borax naturally softens hard water, which protects your detergent so it can maximize cleaning power.

To boost your detergent, simply add 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax to every load, along with your regular (Purex) detergent.

You will find that it naturally softens hard water and improves your detergents cleaning power.
Helps keep stains from being re-deposited onto clothes.

We all know you can use it on laundry but did you know that you can use it all over the house? Add 2-3T in any drains to make them fresh. Use it in the dishwasher with 1/4 cup to give a boost. It is even safe to use on your baby clothes.
