You can definitely make your own. The borax and castile detergent is low sudsing. Would work fine in the front loader.

There are many sites for making your own and I have tried 3 of them. Our clothes did not come out as bright so I went back to Tide but I stretch it a little with the homemade soap.
Is homemade laundry soap safe for HE washers?
Can homemade laundry soap be used in the HE washing machines?
I just got a new front loading washer. Can I use up my old regular detergent by using smaller amounts or will it damage the washer? Thank you.

We use Maytag front loader at our dry cleaning stores. I found that LG front load washer is not the best. BUT, I have found that the following gives me a good and fresh smell to our laundry: 1 Tablespoon of the proper tide (HE) detergent is ample.The odor comes from putting too much detergent in. On towels I add some vinegar too. I wipe down the rubber and put a small sink stopper to keep it open. Also, it really is a must to drain it every month.(A pain!). Our machine is 4 years old. It was rated highly by consumers. I would definitely not recommend it.
Please, can anyone give me some advice?I have a brand new HE top loading washing machine being delivered next week and I'm worried if I can use my homemade laundry powder in it.
When using homemade laundry soap, should I use liquid or power for he washer? Mine is a Cabrio top loader.
Is it OK to use homemade soap in the new HE washers?
Is there a homemade washing soap powder that is safe for HE machines?
I can no longer find any detergents marked HE for front loading washers in my grocery stores. Is it no longer made? What do I use in place of it?

They are often kept on the top shelf. In a pinch, you can just use half or one third of a regular detergent.
I use less than 1 tablespoon HE laundry detergent and I have way too much soap.
