Homemade Laundry Soap

I've found some awesome ideas on the Pinterest website, and have lots of stuff on my boards, but haven't actually done many of them.  Until today!  I decided as a money saver I was going to try making homemade laundry soap.  I used this recipe (for lack of a better word) from Being Creative.  I found all of the ingredients in the laundry isle at my local Wal-Mart and my total cost for everything was $15.57.

I can't wait to finish up with my current laundry soap so I can try this out. 

Another tip I got from a good friend is to use vinegar in your fabric softener ball.  It doesn't make your clothes smell, and works great, according to her.  I don't know if you can put it in the fabric softener dispenser in your washing machine though.  Does anyone else do this?

You can use the vinegar in the washer - just put it in the water of the rinse cycle - when it is full.That is how the softener ball works - opens with the rinse cycle.

Either works the same - vinegar in the rinse cycle or the ball that opens in the rinse cycle.
