Being part of the Purex Insiders Program is fantastic because I get to try new products. This past month, I was able to try 20 Mule Team Borax.
For those who do not tried Borax, here is a little information and history*:
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, and 99.5% pure (there is about a half of 1% of naturally occurring trace minerals). Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried, and boxed for consumers.
Borates, borax and boron compounds are with us throughout our lives. Families use it to soak and wash diapers and other laundry, but it’s also an ingredient in cosmetics, medicines, ceramics and building materials.
The biggest industrial user of borates is the glass industry (especially fiberglass and gorilla glass). It’s an important ingredient in agricultural chemicals and fire retardants.
In earlier times, borax was proclaimed to be a magical crystal that was used to aid digestion, keep milk sweet and even cure epilepsy. Common sense and modern technology have brought us better solutions to these and other problems, but 20 Mule Team Borax still has a place in your home.
20 Mule Team Borax comes from California where one of the world’s largest deposits was discovered in 1913.
Absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, per-oxside, chlorine, or other additive chemicals.cleaning as well.
I tried it with my laundry and it worked well. 20 Mule Team Borax is supposed to be great for grease, so when hubby got butter on his jeans when we went to the movies, I decided to try the Borax to get them clean. I added a 1/2 cup of Borax to my laundry. I did not even pre-soak the jeans. It did remove stains and the grease.
Our cat, Scout, has a bad habit of drinking from one of the sinks in our bathroom. We can't stop her because she does it in the middle of the night when we are sleeping. I usually use regular bathroom cleaner but I did not want her to get sick. So I started cleaning that vanity sinks with 20 Mule Team Borax so it is safer for her. Since it is a natural cleaner, I figure it is better. It actually cleaned really well.
I had never thought of switching out my regular cleaners for Borax but now I will. And 3 lucky readers will receive one coupon each to try out this product and see if it worked for them! YAY! To win, just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below.
