Tackle Tough Laundry Stains
20 Mule Team® Borax helps prevent stains from being re-deposited back onto clothing and makes sure the stain goes down the drain!
How does it do that?
20 Mule Team Borax keeps stains suspended in the wash water, preventing soiled particles from being re-deposited back onto your clothes.
Can stains “jump” from one laundry item to another?
Yes. Your detergent works to “lift” stains off of laundry items where they swirl around in the wash water. In some cases, that stain can be broken up and re-deposited back onto other wash items.
For example, let’s say your son spills some ketchup on a shirt. Your detergent lifts the ketchup stain where it’s free to float around in the wash. Tiny bits of ketchup can be re-deposited back onto multiple items in the wash.
20 Mule Team® Borax fights “Stain Jumping”
20 Mule Team Borax maintains an ionic charge on soiled particles keeping them suspended in the wash water, thus preventing soiled particles from being re-deposited back onto your clothes. Once your detergent has lifted a stain, Borax helps keeps it off to make sure the stain goes down the drain!
