Crystallized Blue Powder on Laundry Washed with Borax

I have a front load washer and extremely hard water. I just recently started using borax in my washer. I have had 2 or 3 white under tee shirts that have this crystalized blue powder on the shirt. I ruined the first shirt trying to pull the shirt apart and placed a hole in it. What is this and what should I do?

I have a question, well, a couple of them if I may.

Did you use any fabric softener also in the washer's dispenser?

If so, it sounds like the crystalized blue powder on the shirt, is
the borax that didn't dissolve, mixed together with the fabric softener - possibly?

And at which point did you add the borax?

I just read something about this, not that I have the answer, but,
it could or might be the reason. What I'd read was to add the borax into the washing machines tub (before adding clothes) and to use warm or hot water for your wash, as cold water could or might not dissolve the borax powder as efficiently.


I hope something here can help you figure this mystery of
how the crystalized powder got on the white tee shirts to begin with.
