Hi everyone! I am so happy today. You see, our internet is back up and running:) You really don't realize how much you appreciate something until it is gone. And believe me, for someone who runs a blog, that internet is a must-have! I apologize to you all who have gone without my giveaways the past week. It has been a real pain and thankfully we live on the border of states so I was able to run into town on the other side and at least post.
Today I have a review and giveaway for 20 Mule Team Borax. What a name huh? I wasn't too sure how I would like it or if it would work well in our house. But I was game to try it and I am sooo glad I did! The giveaway will be for three winners so make sure to enter after you read my review.
I received a box of 20 Mule Team Borax and three coupons. This is a box of cleaner and I thought it was only for the laundry. But boy was I wrong! After opening the protective plastic it was in(thank you for that!) I immediately read the different things this can be used for. And talk about a lot! You can use it in your laundry, dishwasher, to remove stains, in the toilet, etc. I would think you might want a couple boxes though if you use it in your dishwasher and your toilet:)
I used mine for the laundry. We do not have the worst water here but it is not something we drink. Our washer is an LE and I did make sure the Borax could be used in it. It says it is safe for any washer and I had no problems with my front load washer. So, I opened it up and checked out the directions. I do wish they were a little more specific. All it says is to mix with your detergent. Well, my detergent goes in a top little dish and needless to say, it didn't work very well the first time. I put in half a cup, the amount they tell you, and it was too much. I still had some left when it was done running, enough for two more loads. It was definitely worth putting it in. I noticed a difference in the way my clothing felt and smelled. It really did turn out better.
So is this something I will purchase again in the future? Maybe. I think once I try it out on other cleaning tasks I will decide. But three of my readers will be able to try out a box of Borax for themselves. The coupon is good until 9/31/14. Giveaway will end 6/27. Winners will be chosen through Random.org and will have 48 hours to respond. USA ONLY.
