Holy Soap that's a lot!!

I was gifted some hand me downs in great condition, but dingy looking. I threw them in the wash to freshen them up and my front loader was half full of suds!! I've been rinsing these clothes ALL day and there is still an insane amount of soap coming from them!!!  How does this happen??? Isn't there an amount to use suggestion you're supposed to follow for detergents?? I'm skirting around wanting to ask what her laundry routine is, she is wasting soap by using this much.

Anyone else ever have this issue??

Do you have a high efficiency washing machine and perhaps used thee wrong detergent?

I didn't add any detergent, I just threw them in by themselves because she said she had washed them. This is what I usually do with hand me downs unless they are stained and I'm doing a stain treatment.  I didn't add any detergent, this is what is coming from the clothes.

After this, I believe it.  I just finished rinsing them last night. I cannot get over HOW MUCH soap was still left in them. Blows my mind.
