There are 3 reasons that I love Borax.
1. SILLY PUTTY
2. Stain Cleaner!
3. All Natural.
Although I use a different chemical free process to actually wash most of my laundry Borax is my go-to for tough stains – mostly produced by my kids! You can come by my house and open up my laundry cabinets at any time of the year and I will always have at least one box of Borax on hand. I have two boys which is pretty much synonymous with mud, grass stains, and messes! Anytime I have a particularly dirty article of clothing, or stained socks I soak them overnight in a hot bucket of water mixed with Borax. I’ve done it this way for years and have always been satisfied with the results! But the great thing about Borax is that it isn’t JUST for laundry! I use it in my science experiments, you can use it as a carpet cleaner, a dish detergent, and it softens hard water and keeps stains from being re-deposited back onto clothes!
Trust me – I only have 2 boys (3 including my husband) and the amount of laundry that just the 3 of them produce is just astronomical. Borax helps save my scrubbing arm when it comes to stains! I LOVE just soaking the stained clothes overnight in Borax and coming back to them in the morning!
