I finally did it. I've had the stuff to make my own laundry soap for over a month. Today I finally made it. Its really great and less than $0.01 a load. =) It wasn't hard and you can find the direction on my friends blog here. I found all the ingredients at my local supermarket (AKA Raley's Belair). I It smells like my Grandma Williams soap plain (I haven't put any oils in it to give it a scent but am going to go get some fresh scent to add to it).
