Review and #Giveaway Borax 20 Mule Team Prize Pack

I have long been a fan of Borax.  It used to be that I would even go into the one box store I hate to shop at once a year just so I could stock up on Borax because no one else carried it.  I don't know if it was the rise in green/natural cleaning or what, but now I see it everywhere--even my grocery store!

I know a lot of people don't know what Borax is, so let me tell you.  It is sodium tetraborate, a mineral which is derived from the evaporation of seasonal lakes.  It has absolutely nothing added to it.  Nothing.  Zip.  Nada.  No nasty chemicals.

Borax works to soften "hard water" that most people have in their homes.  Borax 20 Mule Team naturally softens hard water, making your laundry detergent work better.  You can simply add 1/2 cup Borax to your laundry (Purex is my choice) to get clothes cleaner.  (It is safe for HE machines, too.)  I always think it makes my whites brighter, too.  It is also great as a pre-soak to remove stains out of clothing, including tomato sauce, oil/grease, ground in dirt and grass.  Of course, it is also safe enough to use on baby clothes and gentle enough to use on delicates.

But Borax isn't just for laundry.  You can use it as a green cleaner to clean toilet bowl, showers, garbage disposal, garbage cans, rugs/carpets, kitchen appliances (including stainless steel) and counter tops.  I just learned it can also be used in the dishwasher to remove hard water minerals and residues.  It will reduce spots and fil from your dishes and glasses.  It naturally deodorizes and refreshes!

Like I said, I have long been a fan.  I think I have been using Borax 10 Mule Team since 1990 or before.  I have even written a few posts previously about Borax:  Going Green and Make Your Own Laundry Detergent.  I love how well it works in the laundry, but there are a ton of other uses for Borax! You can clean just about anything with it.  It does an awesome job--and isn't harmful to the environment!

Anyway, if you are a lover of Borax or just wanting to try for the first time, one of my very lucky readers will win coupons for three (3) free boxes of 20 Mule Team Borax.  Just enter the easy Rafflecopter Giveaway Below.
