Summer is over and it’s time to get ready for fall. I love the cooler temperatures, which means I can open the windows and deep clean the house!  From the bathrooms to the bedrooms, down to the pillows, curtains and mattress, I can always count on 20 Mule Team® Borax to help get the job done!

I purchased my box of Borax at Kroger, right on the laundry aisle with other laundry boosters and additives.

Since Borax is an “All Natural” product, I love using it to deodorize the mattresses.  After I read how much dust, sweat and dead skin collect in a mattress over time, I’ve been trying to get into a routine of cleaning them at least once a year!
