20 Mule Team Borax–Review and Giveaway

I recently received a box of 20 Mule Team Borax to review.  This was not my first time using Borax.   I’ve used it for years in my homemade laundry detergent


20 Mule Team Borax is a laundry detergent booster and multi-purpose household cleaner.   Borax is 100% natural.  The common name for it is sodium tetraborate, a naturally occurring substance produced the evaporation of seasonal lakes.  It containing no phosphates, chlorine or other additives and can be used in laundry and household cleaning.

Since I’m already using Borax in my laundry, I decided to use it for cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen for this review.    I was able to clean the porcelain tub and toilets without scratching the surface and it was much easier to remove the hard water deposits that form in the toilet.    Cleanup in the kitchen was quick and easy as the Borax cuts through grease on the top of the stove, and makes dishes sparkle.  Warning, it also makes your glassware very slippery. I guess that’s what happens when it’s really clean?

Oh, and another GREAT use for Borax….homemade Oobleck!  Seriously, my kids love this stuff.  Just mix some Elmer’s school glue, Borax and water until you have the perfect non-Newtonian substance.  You can add fool coloring too, just for fun.


Three (3) lucky winners will each receive a coupon for one (1) FREE box of 20 Mule Team Borax.  To enter, just leave a comment below telling me if you’ve ever made Oobleck (with or without Borax).  Yes, it’s goofy, but hey, it’s my blog.

Entries must be received by midnight on June 21, 2013.  Winners will be contacted via email on June 22, 2013.  (Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you with your entry.)

Must be a U.S. resident to win.


I received 20 Mule Team Borax free for review purposes only.  I was given no other compensation, nor was I required  to write a positive review.  The opinions expressed here are strictly my own.

I have made it before, but it was so long ago I can't remember what we used to make it. I would love to try it again with Borax...my son would love it!

Thanks for the chance to win!
