liquid laundry soap recipes

I am new to liquid soap and am looking into making my own laundry soap. Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance for any help.
I have been making bar soap by the hot process for several years now

Here is a recipe that I found

Here is a recipe that I found online. I made it this weekend and it worked well on the first load of laundry. I wonder how washing soda would affect/improve the performance, or if it is necessary. I also wonder what other purposes I could use this formulation for (e.g. body wash, shampoo, facial cleanser). What additives have other people used?

Coconut oil (76 degree): 8 ounces (226.7 grams) (25%)

Palm kernel oil: 8 ounces (226.8 grams) (25%)

Lard: 16 ounces (276 grams) (50%)

Distilled water (for lye): 25.6 ounces (725.7 grams)

Lye--potassium hydroxide: 8.1 ounces (230.7 grams)

Distilled water : 64 ounces (1,814.4 grams) (for dilution and borax)

Borax: 2.5 ounces (70.9 grams)

Fragrance oil (if desired): 1.5 to 3 ounces (42.5 to 85.0 grams) per pound of finished soap (This is added after the cook and dilution.)

I've made LS laundry soap

I've made LS laundry soap with just 100% coconut oil and KOH/water,  it is very concentrated even once it is diluted so a little goes a long way!
