Would you add a small bar of soap of the same volume of soap powder to some water when washing clothes?

No, you cannot use bar soap in place of powdered soap when washing clothes - unless you are washing by hand. Powdered and liquid soaps are designed to disperse quickly into the wash water, bar soaps will not do that. After the washing process, bar soap may remain as a bar (although a bit smaller) and then the rinse steps will not be effective at removing residual soap.
