I was just wondering if anyone makes their own laundry detergent? If so Does it make your clotes smell good and is it cheaper and by how much?

I do. I am not a fan of scented clothing and my recipe smells good but not on my clothes after but you can add essential oils if you like it.

My clothes come out clean and feel really soft.

I do. Mine is very lightly scented, it smells fresh but not like commercial ones that break me out.

I do. I've been doing it for over 3 years - a years worth of ingredients costs $12.00.  Add vinegar as a fabric softener, maybe $20 a year?  

My son has allergy-induced asthma and I wanted to get as much of the unneeded chemicals out of our house as fast as possible. This detergent even works on my husband's oil field clothes and coveralls.

 Yep. I've been making it for 2 years now. My kids have eczema so my laundry soap is unscented and hypo-allergenic. You could add scent though

Yes, it saves me a lot of money but I miss the scents of Gain/Tide. So I buy softener on sale and split it in half with water to save me money as well.

 I used these ingredients replacing with dove soap.  I also made it a liquid version.  It eneded up being a very water like consistency but still cleans well.  There isn't a fragrance, but that's alright.
