What's the Best Soap for a Front Loading Washer?

I just bought a front load washer. Do we need to use that expensive soap? Can we make our own? Thanks!

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.

I LOVE my front loading washer and dryer. I use LIQUID soap only as I'm on a septic tank in the country. I ALWAYS by the least expensive liquid laundry detergent I can find. I NEVER use powder soap. Your clothes come out fresh and clean. I usually use X-Tra or some other off brand that is inexpensive. You don't need Tide or All or the other really expensive stuff.

Your probably better off buying off brands than trying to concoct your own.

Any brand which has HE (high efficiency) on the label. I use Tide HE and it works fine for me.
