With The Help Of Borax and Purex – This Afghan looks and feels Amazing!

The best part of crocheting an afghan is hitting the finish line; weaving in the last strand of yarn, washing, drying and then finally…doing a cuddle test before wrapping it up to give to another.

I received a box of Borax & the NEW Purex Baby laundry soap and the new Crystals fabric softener not too long ago, which is great because both Borax and Purex are among the top 3 laundry staples in my home.

Borax and Purex for my Afghans

I used the three laundry aids on the afghan I just finished for CJ last night and let me just say – this afghan is softer and more cuddle worthy than I would have ever expected. I think it’s because of the Borax I used, since it is a laundry booster…but then again, it could have been the Purex Baby detergent and/or crystals. I don’t know for sure, but the three of these – together – made for some really amazing results! I’m definitely using the trio when I’m done with my next crocheted project.

If you’ve never used Borax or Purex product before – I highly recommend them! They really do a great job on the laundry.

Oh, almost forgot, here’s the “completed” afghan…

    Awesome! You should be proud. I’m sure CJ will enjoy that labor of love :)

      Forgot to ask–do the afghan colors mean anything special to your son? Just wondering because they are the same colors of my daughter’s softball uniform this year!

      • Thanks Renee! :)
        Actually – CJ is color blind. He couldn’t even figure out the color order…actually, those were the colors of yarn in my stash collection. Piper picked the blue, I picked the coral and Patience chose grey – to help tone the colors down. It was just a stroke of luck, on our part, that it came together so beautifully.

          Sorry, I didn’t know he was color blind :( I couldn’t have picked a more terrible question to ask if I had tried!

          • No, no, no – please don’t worry – it wasn’t a bad question at all…don’t feel bad. We find the humor in it all the time. Piper thinks it’s fun to help him color in coloring books. Since he cant see the color hues, Piper gets to choose the colors for him. It’s great! The only thing he hates about being color blind is that he can never get the enjoyment out of watching a 3D movie… :)
