There used to be a time when I never worried about the products I used to clean my home, and of course never had to worry about cleaning it as often as I do these days. With 3 (almost 4!) little ones running around, I'm constantly cleaning, and with that, worried about the products I use and how safe they are for small, sensitive noses and bodies.
I was sent a big box of 20 Mule Team Borax to review, as a part of my being a Purex Insider.
From the informational material I received:
"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 naturally occurring substance produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes. Absolutely nothing is added. No phosphates, chlorine, or other additive chemicals."
Borax can be used for almost anything! It's a laundry booster and multi-purpose household cleaner. I decided to let my bathroom get a little more messy than normal (which doesn't take long in our home!) so I could try this out on my entire bathroom and see how well it cleaned.
Here are some before shots of my tub and sink:
Borax is very easy to use for cleaning purposes! Simply wet a sponge or cleaning cloth, and sprinkle some on the wet or damp cloth, then get to work scrubbing and cleaning!
The first thing I noticed was no scent. I like to have a little bit of a scent in my bathroom, or anywhere in my home, after cleaning, but with scents comes chemicals, and I try hard to avoid those as often as possible. The other thing I noticed about the Borax was how closely it resembles baking soda. The texture is similar and of course no scent. (To be honest though, I like the Borax better than baking soda!)
I sprinkled some in my toilet as well, to see how well it cleaned the toilet bowl. It wasn't too dirty to begin with, but I wanted to give it a whirl anyway!
I was very happy with the results of using 20 Mule Team Borax while cleaning my bathroom! It left everything not only clean, but sparkling and shiny too!
Not only am I happy with the results from cleaning with the Borax, but I can feel good knowing my family is safe from harmful chemicals and smells, and all germs that existed in the dirty bathroom, are long gone with 20 Mule Team Borax!
