What better way to push myself back into blogging then a small giveaway? Nothing!
So today I bring you a post about what I do with Borax, and why you need to try it.
Yes, my blog is about making my kids cook for me, but we do so much more then that (and no kitchen companies have offered me things to review!) including crafts, saving money, and going green. We do all of these things with Borax!
Its a product I saw Pinterest a few times and figured it was in the “too expensive or complicated” category. Once I found it right there in the laundry aisle at my grocery store, for a low price, my ideas changed! I initially bought some to attempt to make my own laundry detergent. It was a huge success, I was shocked how easy it was to do. You can find the directions on my Pinned it…Did it board on Pinterest.
Then I read the box. Borax is 100% natural, with no added chemicals. It softens my water (a huge deal for me!!) and makes my laundry soap more effective. Its uses are many, and I love it!! I even add 1/4 cup of Borax to my dishwashing cycle to stop film from forming on my dishes.
The crafts! Oh how my science minded children love Borax. A few pipe cleaners, Borax, and boiling water (directions here) and lovely sun catchers were created within hours. The possibilities are endless!
Anyway! I’ll get back to my usual blog soon. We’ve been doing so many fun things in the kitchen! Lily Belle has been making single serve oatmeal packets, Pierce is learning about stove safety, Ted enjoys helping me make the twins’ lunches for school…and Charlotte, well, Charlotte is entertaining in the kitchen.
