Beside above, why homemade laundry soap is bad?

Homemadedetergent” can ruin your clothes If the water you're using to do the wash is hard — meaning it's high in the minerals calcium and magnesium — your soap (homemadedetergent”) will react with the dissolved minerals in the water and leave unwanted residue on your clothes.

Does Borax really clean clothes?

Acts as a pH buffer: Borax has a high pH. Since borax contains sodium, it helps to soften the wash water, so your clothes come out looking great. Removes soap residue from your clothing: The borates in Borax work to keep soap dispersed throughout the load, so it's more likely to rinse out.
