I have never posted on a site before I found this one. It is great. I
have to say that I love cooking my own laundry detergent. I use a
cup per load. The clothes smell like they were line-dried outside
on a sunny day. Today I tried the idea someone suggested of
adding vinegar to the rinse water. I couldn't believe how soft my
laundry turned out. You don't need to worry about your clothes
smelling like vinegar. They just smell clean! Thank you so
much for all of this information. I also belong to Flylady and it
has changed my life. I would encourage anyone who has a
problem with housekeeping to check it out also.

I'm not sure that will work. I always add the vinegar to the rinse cycle. I use a downy ball. (Got it free with a coupon when they first came out). Just fill it with the amount of vinegar you want to use and put it in with the laundry. It opens up by itself in the rinse. The ball says it will only work with Downy but I've never had a problem with it working with the vinegar.

Vinegar to Laundry Soap?Yes!
if you make your own laundry soap you can add the vinegar to it.. I have for years and my clothes are SO soft !! No bad smell either !! I don't add more for the rinse cycle either .. I also add a ball of foil to the dryer (when I use it..) cuts down on static
