Borax review and giveaway

The Purex Insider program recently gave me the opportunity to try 20 Mule Team Borax laundry booster. Three of my lucky readers will win a coupon for a free full size product as well. Also, the Borax - Fresh Year, Fresher Laundry Facebook Sweepstakes is now LIVE! You can enter to win the $1,500 Grand Prize, or one of 171 coupons for FREE BORAX! You may sign up once a day until February 22nd just by clicking HERE.

20 Mule Team Borax naturally softens hard water. It keeps stains and soil from being redistributed back onto clothing in the washer. You can add a 1/2 cup of Borax  to each load of laundry to boost the cleaning process. I used it in my laundry and it helped get a stain out of one of my sweatshirts that came from the gunk on the bottom of our big garage door. I was ecstatic to see that my hoodie had not been ruined when I pulled it out of the machine. I have been washing the entire household's clothing together lately, and have had no trouble with the transfer of soils from one garment to another (such as grime from hubby's work clothes getting on any of the other stuff). There is less of a job to do now when laundry time comes, since I don't have to worry as much about sorting so many separate loads.

You can also use Borax for a variety of things around the house, such as cleaning garbage disposals, drains, bathtubs, sinks, toilet bowls, carpets, kitchen counters, and appliances. Almost anything you can think of that could use a cleaner, Borax is there to help tackle the mess. Borax can also be used to deter certain pests.

There are other things you can use Borax for that you would never even think of! Along with a few other simple ingredients, you can make homemade Gak, Silly Putty, Flubber, and much more. Recipes can be found easily on the internet, and making the concoctions is not only fun, it can also be educational!
