Update: This giveaway is now closed.
It’s time for a new laundry review and giveaway! I forget how I started doing these reviews, but I thoroughly enjoy the chance to try new laundry products, as well as share them with you. I hope you enjoy them, too!
This time around, I received a heavy box from Purex – but it wasn’t a Purex product. This time, I was sent a box of 20 Mule Team Borax. I had previously seen it on the shelf, and I know my cousin uses it to clean her cloth diapers. Other than that, I had never used Borax so I was eager to do so.
Before I used it, I did it a bit of research. I learned that 20 Mule Team Borax is a 100% natural mineral. Once it’s removed from the ground, the borax is simply washed, dried and boxed. Absolutely nothing is added! No phosphates, chlorine, or other additive chemicals. That’s good to know.
Borax naturally softens hard water, which protects detergent – so it can maximize cleaning power. Basically, Borax serves as a laundry booster. So, you simply add 1/2 of Mule Team Borax to every load, right along with your regular detergent to help stains from being re-deposited back onto clothes.
After reading about it, I was now really eager to try Borax. I tossed a scoop in with a load of my white sheets and towels. It did act like a natural softener, and my whites seemed brighter than usual! I also noticed that there was a fresher smell. I don’t know if it was my imagination, but I sniffed all the clothes coming out of the washer, and there was a fresh smell – that wasn’t just my detergent. I’m giving credit to the Borax!
I used Borax with my whites and colors. All around, I was impressed. It was a natural way to get my clothes clean – and it was effective! I probably will continue to use it more so with my whites, but it did work with the colors. Oh, and we have a water softener, but I would still use the Borax to help with my laundry!
Do you want to try Borax for yourself? Well, you are in luck! Once again, I have 3 product coupons for a box of Borax to share with 3 of my readers. Simply leave a comment telling me if you already use Borax or if you want to give it a try. The giveaway will end on Friday, February 1st at 6pm.
Oh, and after you enter to win here, be sure you head over to enter the Borax Fresh Year, Fresher Laundry Sweepstakes on Facebook for another chance to win. They are giving away a $1500 grand prize as well as 171 coupons for Borax (total value: $2013, get it?).
Thanks for letting me share my laundry musings and discoveries with you. I hope whoever wins the Borax coupons will enjoy using this product as much as I.
As a Purex Insider, I received a free box of Borax to review. However, all of the the opinions expressed here are my own.
