    Why would I need 3 cups of laundry soap with all the other ingredients too? Seems like over kill.

      You can certainly use less soap this mixture works well with my husband's work clothes and I've not noticed any buildup of soap. that's the beauty of making your own You decide what works for you and your water conditions.
