AFAIK, Borax and Oxiclean work the same way. The key active ingredient is sodium perborate. Soaking in either should produce the same results, although I don't know what else is in off-the-shelf borax based cleaners or Oxiclean. They're relatively strong bases work by chemically disassembling microbes and odorants.

White vinegar is, of course, a weak solution of acetic acid. Goes good on salad but I'm not sure what it does for laundry.
