Getting Crafty With 20 Mule Team Borax + Giveaway

No matter how good or bad my day is going, visiting the kids I babysit for always seems to improve my day exponentially, especially when they have fun and exciting projects they need my help to create!

I'm not sure which came first: an e-mail from Purex Insiders about a sweepstakes Borax is offering or Ellie, the 10 year old I babysit for, being sent home with a project about making goo. No matter which came first, we got to experience the wonder and excitement of goo making with Borax yesterday afternoon.

This isn't the exact recipe we used, but it is very similar. I did have some pictures from the experience, but my computer is hating on me this morning. It says: "Pictures?! What?!"

Goo isn't the only thing you can make using Borax though. I've already talked about using it to make laundry detergent, but check out this list of other things you can make using Borax. (The bouncy ball looks exciting!!) Or if you aren't feeling particularly crafty (or don't have kids), this list is great for making diy home products like insecticide or a metal cleaner.

While I think these lists show that Borax is an extremely useful product to have around the house, I'd love to hear what exciting things you use Borax for in the comments! Anything different that isn't mentioned on those lists? :)

If you love Borax as much as I do, I recommend going to enter the Getting Crafty with 20 Team Mule Borax sweepstakes where you have the opportunity to win $500! Just imagine how much Borax you could buy with that?! (I suppose you could also buy other things as well, if you really wanted…) Entry is simple: just create a pinterest board with all of your Borax crafting ideas and provide a link to it on the sweepstakes entry form. The sweepstakes is open to US residents only, and entries will be accepted until 3PM PT on February 28th, 2014. Then you can craft (or clean) up a storm using all of those ideas you posted on pinterest! Awesome, right!?!

Best of luck to all and I hope you are having a fantastic Thursday! (Please let me know if you win!)

** The sweepstakes is being hosted by Purex Insiders. I did not receive any compensation or even a product to try for this post, but I do get entered into a separate blogger sweepstakes for all who enter the 20 Mule Team Borax giveaway using my link.
