We have the most stains in our clothes at our house so I have plenty of cleaning tips for you. I absolutely do not enjoy having to remove stains but someone has to do it. Since we live on a farm and my husband works construction, it’s either grease or manure. Over the years I have gotten pretty good at getting grease out of jeans, shirts and whatever else it lands on. My husband came home last night from working on construction equipment and had grease all over his jeans. So, I thought it would be the perfect time to try out my new 20 Mule Team Borax I received as being a part of the Purex Insiders group.
I use Goop Hand Cleaner by the tub for everything. Our hands. Our clothes. Around the house cleaning. You name it, it’s probably been gooped at least once! I had already rubbed in my Goop before I thought to use the 20 Mule Team Borax. The Goop doesn’t always get all of the grease stain out so I was excited to use something else to see how it worked. I rubbed the Goop into the jeans and rubbed it together. I had already let it set for 30 minutes or so.
I threw the jeans in the washer, added my detergent, and about a 1/2 Cup of Borax. I filled the washer up with warm water and let it soak for about an hour. I wanted to make sure it really had time to pre-soak and work out the stains.
20 Mule Team Borax is 100% natural mineral from the Earth and pure. We have hard water. Hard water contains calcium and magnesium (ions). 20 Mule Team Borax actually naturally softens your hard water, which in turn protects your detergent. It maximizes cleaning power while saving you money on detergent. It simply improves your detergent’s cleaning power and helps keep stains from being re-deposited back onto clothes.
How To Use Borax
Borax boosts your detergent. Simply add 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax to every load, along with your regular detergent.

The jeans I mentioned above had multiple stains of grease all over them. I have to say I am quite surprised but they came out grease and stain free! We give 20 Mule Team Borax an A+! I’ll be using it in all my loads of laundry even if I don’t have stains. It’s a great way to soften our hard water.
