Update: This giveaway is now closed.
As a Purex Insider, I recently had the opportunity to review 20 Mule Team Borax.
I have never used Borax in my life, so I had some learning to do for this one! For this review, I used Borax as a laundry booster, but it can also be used as a multi-purpose household cleaner.
One thing I really like about Borax is that is 100% natural mineral - sodium tetraborate. Borax is meant to soften water, so it works best in homes that have hard water. Truthfully, I am not sure what kind of water we have here - we are on a well, but the condo association has a fantastic water filtration system.
Using Borax is easy - just add a half cup to every load of laundry to help improve your detergent's cleaning power and help keep stains from being re-deposited back onto your clothes.
After using 20 Mule Team Borax on our laundry for two weeks in a row, I am not certain that it really helped improve my detergent's cleaning power. Unfortunately, I found that the Borax powder left a residue on our clothes after washing, although that residue seemed to mostly "disappear" after drying for about ten minutes (I air dry and then "fluff" in the dryer).
That said, it certainly didn't harm our clothes and there's always the possibility that our clothes really are cleaner now and I just don't know it! I'd also like to try using 20 Mule Team Borax as a household cleaner because I think that could be a great way to use it!
