Borax for Cleaning Socks

I learned a trick when parenting newborn twins. I use either cold or warm water in the washing machine. After including my usual laundry detergent, I add 1/4 - 1 full cup of Borax. If the stains are really stubborn, I also add an equal amount of washing soda. I then soak for an hour or so. This has worked on everything from formula to mud.
