    Borax and baking soda both serve as laundry boosters and are effective at removing stains. Combine the two with Castile soap to make a homemade laundry soap.

      BORAX VS. WASHING SODA Washing soda more of a laundry booster (water softener); Borax more of a general cleaner as well as laundry booster. When you use borax in the washing machine, do not add bleach because of the danger of toxic fumes. Both are safe for septic, plumbing and machines.
