Purex Insider, I am able to frequently review products that are made from Henkel, which is the manufacturer of Purex. Some of these products are new, some have been around awhile. That is what brings me to this post today! How many of you have ever heard of Borax? Well, I have to admit that the first time I ever heard about it was this past July when a friend was RAVING that it is the only thing she uses on her family's clothes. They live on a small farm and their clothes get incredibly soiled and she was SO excited about Borax and encouraged me to try it. Well, I forgot about it until I heard about this review opportunity. 20 Mule Team Borax is a Laundry Booster and household cleaner...all in one powdered form! Here is a bit more about this product...
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.
SO, now that you know everything that there is to know about 20 Mule Team Borax, let me tell you about my experience with it. :)
Borax retails for a little over $3, which makes it a very affordable laundry booster and household cleaner. I am very excited to try it out in other areas of my house...especially in our new house when we move (I will finally have a DISHWASHER!!). You may be asking, where can I get Borax? All you need to do is check out their store locator and that will give you a full list of stores that carry this product. Be sure to also check out 20 Mule Team Borax on Facebook...they would love to meet you! :)
