Notes

You can substitute the laundry soap bar for a regular bar of body soap, but you'll need to make sure you wash the clothes on warm or hot for the soap to dissolve. 
The sunlight bar will dissolve, but the regular soap requires the higher temperature
If you have sensitive skin, try switching borax for baking soda instead
