Personally I use either Dr Bronners soap or Seventh Generation HE powder when I wash my snow/technical gear in the washing machine. For my front load washer, I use 1 to 2 oz of Dr Bronners or about 1/2 the recommended amount of SG powder.
SG powder detergent is not common, I don't use the liquid variety because labels generally suggest powder. As far as Dr B soap goes, that stuff is mild an a soap rather than detergent so I think it should be safe.
