When you think of Borax, what comes to mind? Do you even know what Borax is, or where you can find it? I received a box of Borax in the mail a few weeks ago, so naturally, I’ve been doing the research to see all the benefits of Borax in my home. Borax is a natural laundry booster that you can add to your regular detergent to help clean your clothes. It is also good to get rid of ants, clean your toilets or even disinfect your carpets. But one of the most fun uses of Borax is to create some fun science experiments for kids.

Benefits of Borax

I have begun dropping in about 1/2 cup of Borax with my laundry the last few weeks to see if there is any difference in the cleaning power of my detergent and I am not sure if there is a substantial improvement. It’s still too soon to tell. However, I love the idea of cleaning my bathrooms with something more natural than my traditional cleaners.

Where to find Borax

Borax can be found in the laundry aisle of your grocery.

20 Mule Team® Borax is 100% natural, and 99.5% pure (there is about a half of 1% of naturally occurring trace minerals). Once removed from the ground it is washed, dried, and boxed for consumers.

Borates, borax and boron compounds are with us throughout our lives. Families use it to soak and wash diapers and other laundry, but it’s also an ingredient in cosmetics, medicines, ceramics and building materials.

Other uses for Borax

Not only is Borax good for boosting your laundry cleaning power or cleaning your bathrooms, but there are many scientific experiments that use Borax. You can use Borax to make bouncy balls or Gak. Last year, my son had a great time learning Science in a hands on fashion. They even had a whole Science Day at school. Mrs. Everidge is one of the teachers who helped my son learn so much about Science and Social Studies. I’m sending her one of these coupons for a free box of Borax so she can do more fun experiments with her grandchildren while on summer break! Thanks, Mrs. Everidge!
