Laundry Tip

All Natural Laundry Booster


20 Mule Team® Borax boosts the effectiveness of ALL brands of laundry detergent, and makes every cup more powerful.


How does it do that?
Detergents work better in “soft water.” 20 Mule Team Borax naturally softens hard water making almost all detergents more effective.

What is hard water?


Over 85% of homes have what most people call “hard water.” Hard water is defined as water with calcium and magnesium (ions) in it. You probably have it in your neighborhood.

How does hard water affect laundry?


When you add detergent to hard water, some of the detergent combines with the calcium and magnesium granules that settle to the bottom of the washing machine, where it washes harmlessly down the drain without cleaning your clothes.

20 Mule Team® Borax naturally softens hard water


20 Mule Team Borax naturally softens hard water—which in turn helps your detergent stay dissolved in the water—where it can work on cleaning your clothes.

How to clean stains


To boost your detergent, simply add 1/2 cup of 20 Mule Team Borax to every load, along with your regular detergent.


You’ll find that it:


•   Naturally softens hard water, and improves the cleaning power of your detergent
•   Helps keep stains from being re-deposited back onto clothes
