Borax Giveaway!!

I am very excited about this giveaway! 

Why?  

Because I was able to get my very own box of 20 Mule Team Borax to try!

I know it seems silly to be excited about such a little thing, but I have heard about all the wonderful uses of Borax but have never used it myself.  So I was thrilled to be able to try it and even more thrilled that I'm able to give away a coupon to two readers to try a FREE box of Borax!!

So what is Borax exactly?

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.

Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate: a naturally occurring substance produced by the repeated evaporation of seasonal lakes.

Absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, per-oxside, chlorine, or other additive chemicals.

Here are just a few things 20 Mule Team Borax can do:

*  Boosts the effectiveness of all brands of laundry detergent and makes every cup more powerful.  Just add 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax to every load, along with your regular detergent.

*  Helps eliminate odor in athletic wear.

*  Makes an all-purpose cleaner

*  Unclogs drains with 1/2 cup followed by 2 cups of boiling water.  This is the first thing I used it for and was so excited my drain cleared!!!!

Those are just a few...there are many more than I can list!

--------------------------------------------------------

We have really hard water so I add Borax to my laundry and dishes. I also clean my bathrooms with it to get rid of hard water spots and most recently used it in combination with Dawn to remove a full bottle of red fingernail polish from my carpet that my daughter spilled (by the way the combination took it all out and then we just used a shampooer to suck it all back out). I end up using a lot of Borax in my cleaning and would love a free box.
