Did you know that Borax is a detergent booster? Yes, Borax is the stuff that can be used for a variety of different purposes such as cleaning and making slime. When I actually make the stuff I will post a picture of it her. I got to review a box of 20 Mule Team Borax and I have never used it before. Borax is 100% natural- it’s a mineral that comes from the earth. Nothing is added to it. Once Borax is removed from the ground it is washed, dried, and boxed for consumer use. That’s it!
There are a lot of tips that you can use to make Borax useful for your laundry. It can be used to make hard water softer. Hard water is n 85% of homes, so there is a good chance your home has it. Hard water means that there is calcium and magnesium in the water. When you wash laundry with hard water, calcium and magnesium attach to your detergent and get washed down the drain without actually cleaning your clothes. With Borax, your laundry detergent is able to do its job. Borax naturally softens hard water. All you have to do is add 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax to each load of laundry along with your regular detergent. You will be pleasantly surprised that it really improves the cleaning power of your detergent. It also helps keep stains from being redistributed to other clothes. Don’t you hate when that happens?
Where can I get Borax? Well, it’s in most stores. You buy it where you find laundry detergent. You’ve probably seen it before even if you haven’t had the chance to use it.
