No it's liquid. I can post receipe later when I'm on the computer

Here is the laundry soap I make and if you look on back the boxes it says HE. I use this in my HE and never had a problem.
6 cups water
1/3 bar fels napthan laundry soap (grated)
1/2 cup washing soda
1/2 cup borax
Heat 6 cups water and soap in large pan until dissolved. Stir in washing soda and borax. Mix and heat until dissolved. Boil 15 minutes. Remove from heat. (It will have consistency of honey) In a 3 or 5 gallon bucket add 1 quart (4 cups) of hot water, then add the soap mixture. Add enough cold water to make 2 gallons mixture. Mix until well blended. Let sit for 24 hrs. The soap will gel. Use 1/2 for each load. Makes 2 Gallons.
If detergent doesn't gel up or reach honey consistency, it will still work.
I use old laundry containers or windshield fluid containers (just make sure to clean them out). Milk jugs don’t work to for the laundry soap.
