CLOSED: Borax Review & Giveaway ~ 3 Winners

This giveaway is now closed.

I am a long time fan of 20 Mule Team Borax.  I have used it continuously in my laundry room since my first born was in cloth diapers.  (He’s 29 years old now y’all!)  I always added a 1/2 cup 20 Mule Team Borax with a gallon of water to the diaper pail as a presoak.

20 Mule Team Borax is amazingly a 100% natural mineral from the earth. Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried, and boxed for consumers.  That’s it–absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, per-oxside, chlorine, or other additive chemicals!  Borax has actually been around for years and years.  In earlier times, borax was proclaimed to be a magical crystal that was used to aid digestion, keep milk sweet and even cure epilepsy.  Today we can use 20 Mule Team Borax to increase our laundry detergent’s power and control odors to give you fresh, clean laundry!

20 Mule Team Borax is perfect for hard water problems because it naturally softens hard water and protects your detergents–maximizing its cleaning power. It also helps keep stains from being re-deposited back onto clothing!  All you have to do is add a small amount of the Borax to your wash and let it do the work.  It’s a great booster for cleaning those tough stains out of your clothing and getting a really good wash.   When I washed the diapers I would add another 1/2 cup to load being washed too.  By washing the cloth diapers this way I have stain free cloth diapers that I was able to re-use with each subsquent child.  Talk about saving money and the earth!

Borax is also giving THREE of Money Saving Maine-iac readers A COUPON FOR A FREE BOX OF 20 MULE TEAM BORAX!!
ENTER:  Just leave a comment in the comment section of this post telling me what your toughest laundry stain is.  Easy!  This giveaway will close at midnight, Wednesday, 2/27/13.  All three winners will be notified by email on 2/28/13.  Good Luck!!

    Football, hockey and baseball – what can I say? I use Borax not only to remove stains, but oders a well! With two busy boys, this house cannot go without some in the laundry room!

  4. I would say that grease stains are the hardest – thanks for the chance at the giveaway

  9. Our toughest stain is blood. My twin boys get frequent bloody noses at night and it’s so hard to get the blood stains out of their quilts and sheets, esp. if I don’t see the spots for a few days.

  10. Grass stains – my son loves to play outside, and the knees of his pants are always getting stained!

  11. This is a staple in my house for laundry!!! I love this product!

  12. Harriet Johnson says:

    I add it to my homemade lye soap and it can get anthything cleaner

  13. Karen Roberts says:

    Chapstick that has gone through the wash and dryer! !

  14. Grease/oil by far are the toughest stains in our household!

  15. Toughest stain is deodorant residue on shirts.

  16. My most difficult stain is blueberry–and it is a daily one as my hubby works with them every day!

  17. I have a 4 month old in cloth diapers…I would love to try this for those tough stains!

  20. Grease Stains from oily foods. Kids and husband (and sometime me too) get spots on shirts that wont wash away without special treatment.

  21. Well right now my stains are anything that my Marine can possibly get on his clothes! Including aircraft grease! Soon enough though it will be baby stains & dirty cloth diapers!!!
