  • I love suds. Crappy new machines. I prefer the liquid one. I have a recipe for it, just didn't know if I could use it in this new machine.

  • I make a powder detergent that I've used in my HE machine for the past 2 years or so.

  • I have been wondering the same thing, OP. I would love to make my own but don't want to ruin my machine.
