20 Mule Team® Borax Review & Giveaway Plus GIANT SWEEPSTAKES!

I was excited to hear that I was chosen to work with the Purex Insider team again to share some information about a giveway and a sweepstakes involving 20 Mule Team® Borax. Who doesn't love contests and sweepstakes?

 I actually have been using Boxax for mom had reminded me about how effective it was on stains when I first had kids. It really helps get out those annoying stains that kids often get on their clothes from paint to chocolate and all those crazy stains in between. It is a great all around cleaner and laundry booster.  You can also get more information about how to do laundry too on their website!
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). 20 Mule Team Borax comes from California where one of the world’s largest deposits was discovered in 1913.  Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried, and boxed for consumers.  Absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, per-oxside, chlorine, or other additive chemicals.  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.You can use it to clean tons of other things too!  There are so many ways to use 20 Mule Team Borax.

Twenty Mule Team would help as a laundry booster. Water is rather hard in the area where I live.

Borax is great for making my own laundry detergent and works really well. My neighbor told me I can also use it to kill weeds in my lawn without hurting the grass too.
