Divinity


Featured in today's photo, we have your humble hostess's hairbrushes soaking in a bath of water, 20 Mule Team Borax, and a dash of lemon-fresh Joy. 

Your humble hostess constructed the brilliantly recycled vessel specifically for this purpose.

Your humble hostess believes every aspect of this practice moves her closer to holiness.

tool making... it's what keeps us at the top of the food chain. That and distilled beverages.

...and you just reminded me that I have NO IDEA when I last washed my hairbrushes.

I think you should write an eHow.com article on this topic.

Also, I don't know what Mule Team Borax is (though I can guess) and have never heard of it before. I kind of feel like you get your household products from some alternate universe or from back in time. And I like it.

Let it be known that the O'Brien has been to Death Valley, from whence much of your Borax is (was?) mined and inspected an actual 20-mule-team vehicle (no longer in service).

The O'Brien has a lot of issues.

20 Mule Team Borax, once made famous by the Raygun... imposter to the throne.

I clicked thinking this was about the fluffy candy.

I am disappoint.

I've never used borax to wash my hairbrush. But I do have a box of 20 mule team borax which I have used to boost my laundry detergent, and also to get rid of fleas when nothing else would kill them. They recently re-designed the packaging for 20 mule team borax. I am not a fan.

Is this post title misleading? Yes. Is this post title appropriate? Yes.

Does the new 20-Mule-Team Borax box suck? Yes.

You are supposed to clean the hairbrushes? Oh crap!

Glad I'm not the only one that thought of Reagan.

I sometimes use it with whites.

I would like to see a comprehensive list of the Queen's household products.

You can use Borax to kill ants too. Never used the 20 Mule Team stuff though. Do you have ants in Ohio? We have those pesky little Argentine ants here in CA. They surface a couple times a year. A real pain in the ass. RR's ideals are still working and so are the products he pitched!

Shit. No wonder my hair looks like crap today. Well, that, and I need a haircut. And I should really think about washing my own brushes soon.
