20 Mule Team Borax Detergent Booster – Free Product Coupon Giveaway

20 Mule Team Borax  is a laundry booster  that is 100% natural minerals from the earth and nothing else is added to it (no chlorine, phosphates or other additive chemicals).  If your home has hard water (which 85% of home do), 20 Mule Team  Borax will naturally soften hard water which protects your detergent and maximizes cleaning power.  It also helps keep stains from being re-deposited back onto your clothes.

To boost your detergent with 20 Mule Team Borax, just add 1/2 cup to every load along with your regular detergent.

I was given a box to try out using my regular detergent (which is Purex) and I really liked it.  I normally don’t use a laundry booster but I did like having this to try out.

You can also use Borax for other household cleaning such as removing mildew, unclogging drains, spot remover in dishwasher, eliminating urine stains or catboxes, deodorize garbage disposals and even eliminating weeds and bugs.   Another really fun thing to do with your kids is making Gak with Borax !!!

    I remember my mom using Borax when I was a child . After I left home I assumed they didn’t make it any more. then 1 day I saw it in the store and I’ve been using ever since. Its great.

  108. 20 Mule Team Borax has quite a long history as my
    mother used it. Naturally, it was used by me in later
    years, however, lost track of the product in time and
    it would be nice to have a coupon to reintroduce me
    to this wonderful product.
    Also, in the process of “house cleaning”, came across
    a magazine page advertising a “stuffed little 20 mule
    team mule”. The ad was dated Dec 31, 1987 and the
    little mule was priced at $10.95 plus 1 box top. Was
    wondering if “20 Mule Team Borax” might bring back
    the ” little mule” just for fun. Would like a reply and
    a coupon. Thank you.

  129. It’s been years since I’ve tried Borax. For several years I lived in the mountains of WV, we had a well with a very high iron content and all our clothes got dingy. That is until I discovered Borax. Moving back to civilization I’ve forgotten just how well it works. I do believe there will be Borax in my near future.

  130. I used have used Borax in the past to get rid of fleas in my carpets. You sprinkle the powder onto your carpet and then take a broom swipe over the carpet to get the borax deep. Wait a few hours and you will actually be able to see the fleas suffocate from the borax and they will rise up to the top of the carpet. Then you can vacuum and then throw the contents outside and away from your home immediately.
