Borax ..... a 20 Mule Team, to be exact




When I say Borax, what do YOU think of? 

I think of a product that my Grandmother may have used.  As a kid/teen/young adult, it seems that we don't appreciate the ways of our elders, but on the flip side - didn't you always enjoy going to Grandma's house? Think about it.  Things at Grandma's house were always great...... playing in the yard, hand games, the food (especially the food), the smell of the sheets and home-made quilts that covered you as you and your cousins slept in the living room having the BEST sleepover of your life! 

As an adult with a family, I look back on those times with fondness.  I strive to live more simply and use simpler products, especially those that work well....just like Grandma did.

This is where Borax comes in.  As a Purex Insider, I am able to participate in reviewing products and hosting giveaways. They have sent me three free product coupons to share with you.  It's GIVEAWAY TIME x 3!!!  But first let me share with you a few details about 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.  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.  It's also very inexpensive....around $3.50 per box.

How do you enter the giveaway?
  • Leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite food was that your Grandma used to make.
  • Visit Borax's Facebook page, leave a comment there, and also leave me a comment letting me know you have done so.
  • Leave a comment on your Facebook page sharing this giveaway and leave me a comment letting me know you have done so.
  • Pin this post to Pinterest and leave me a comment letting me know you have done so.
You can leave a comment for each task above - up to 4 comments per person.  To sweeten the deal (and to see who is paying attention), you will also receive an extra "gift" from me - maybe a basket of goodies, maybe some home made bread, maybe a combo......you will have to wait and see!!

Three winners will be chosen on Friday, January 18 at noon.  Good luck every!!!

Borax provided a free sample of their product so I could review them.  However, all of the opinions expressed here are on my own.

I am leaving a comment for Nicole. She sent me a message and was having trouble commenting. She liked Borax's Facebook page.

My Grandma made the very best mashed potatoes. I have no idea what she did to them to make them so awesome, but they were!
