Sometimes I go to a janitorial supply store and buy a gallon of biodegradable detergent concentrate for about $15. It lasts forever and can be use to clean just about everything- counters, floors, bathtub, laundry. A little goes a long way. A teaspoon is plenty for doing a load of laundry. Or put a couple of tablespoons in a spray bottle of water as a general cleaner.
