... as washing soda crystals, or are they different?

I've got a recipe for an all-purpose cleaner that uses borax, and another different recipe that uses washing soda crystals. I managed to get some washing soda but don't know whether I can safely use in both recipes or not? If so I'd like to try both and then decide which I like best. If not, I don't want to end up gassing myself!
