20 Mule Team Borax Review and Giveaway!

As a Pure Insider, I was recently given a chance recently to try 20 Mule Team Borax. You all know how I love to try anything free!
What is Borax?
  • 20 Mule Team Borax is 100% natural mineral from the earth. Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried and boxed for consumers.
  • Borax is the common name for sodium tetraborate: a natural occurring substance produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes.
  • Absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, chlorine, or other additive chemicals.
  • 20 Mule Team Borax naturally softens hard water which protects your detergent, so it can maximize cleaning power. To boost your detergent, simply add 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax to every load along with your regular detergent. We use Purex, of course!
We have been using 20 Mule Team Borax in our laundry for a couple of weeks and, honestly, cannot tell the difference in how our detergent is cleaning. BUT...and this is a big but.....we usually use an un-named oxygen cleaner in our laundry. We happened to be out of it and used the 20 Mule Team Borax in its place.
Why the heck have we been spending so much more money than we needed to???? Seriously, we could not tell the difference! We are switching to 20 Mule Team Borax.
Purex has generously sent me 3 coupons for a FREE box of 20 Mule Team Borax. See:  
3 of my readers can each win one of the above coupons. As always, it is super easy to win:

(daily) You can continue entering even after my giveaway is over, until February 22nd, 2013!

Lots of ways to win, so get to it! Good luck!

As a Purex Insider, Purex provided me with a sample of 20 Mule Team Borax in exchange for a product review. But, as always, all opinions expressed here are my own.

I didn't know borax was an odor controller!
I bet you could use it to kill odors in your washer too like those expensive treatments they try to sell you for just that purpose. ;-)
