What is Borax?

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 naturally softens hard water, which protects your detergent, so it can maximize cleaning power.  Simply add 1/2 cup of Borax to every load, along with your Purex detergent.

My Review: 

Thank you Borax for providing me a free sample of their product so I could review them.  However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.  

I have never used Borax before but after using it on the last 10 or so loads of laundry I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!  I think it really is helping my clothes feel softer!  I have also used it to clean my sinks and it worked fantastic.  Borax may be a great laundry booster but it is also a great product to clean around the house.  I have not had to try to remove a stain in the last couple weeks but I am eager to test the Borax with my next stain.

Every week is a laundry fiasco at our house. I think that we do 20 loads a week! My husband loves to leave pens in his pocket and once I had to throw away an entire load of office clothes after trying various ways of getting out the ink stain that got all over the wash. We have had to replace cell phones twice and various usb cards and jump drives over the years. I do check his pockets before putting items in but the locations vary and hence I miss these things.

I have washed and dried a chapstick. That was a greasy mess. I had to turn some items into rags.

Our dryer broke last winter. We only went about 10 days without one, but you would have thought we went a year without one with the amount of laundry that piled up!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
