Is Borax ok to use in an HE frontloading washer?

So my kid threw up on himself...3 times over the course of 2 days and I cannot get the smell out of the bedding and clothes!
I've washed them twice with detergent and vinegar and still...
Is Borax ok to use to get the smell out? Or even Baking Soda?
I have to use an HE detergent per our warranty agreement - using anything else will void it, but I think I can use laundry boosters with no problem.

  • should be fine - i also use peroxide - i mix it in with liquid laundry detergent - helps boost whites and remove stain and odors - i have a front loader, the only thing I miss is being able to soak clothes - mine doesn't have that function -
