Now, not only do I use it for my husband's clothing, but I jumpedon the "homemade laundry detergent" bandwagon and now I make my own detergent, using, yes, Borax! The receipe I have is the Duggar's Family Recipe. This is the first and only one I've tried. I figured with as many clothes as they must wash, and with all the stains they must have to deal with, their recipe would probably work. I tried it and yes and it does work wonders and seems to last forever, (probably since I only have a family of five).
In case you're wondering what in the world Borax is, I'll fill you in. Borax is sodium tetraborate, a 100% natural mineral from the earth produced by the perpetual evaporation of seasonal lakes. Absolutely nothing is added when 20 Mule Team Borax (the specific brand I use), is boxed for consumers; no phosphates, chlorine or other additive chemicals! Borax naturally softens hard water which actaully maximizes it's cleaning power! This laundry booster can be used in other ways besides laundry such as kitchen cleaning, cleaning tools or I've even seen it used for crafts on Pinterest!
