100% vegetable oil based soap

Hello ladies,
So here I am in Turkey! I'll need a lot of support now that have:
A front loader for the first time,
Hard water (which I'm it even sure if it has been softened, will have to ask management)
No tide, no RnG, none of my favorite soaps or Ecover!

I did find out from a local mom who bought pockets from eBay (alvababy and sunbaby) that she has used a certain detergent without any problems. It says on it that it is 100% vegetable oil based soap, with tony fragrance pills!!!

It requires 3 full scoops for regular laundry in hard water.

My question is, do I follow instructions or use half the recommended amount?

Also, any links to hard water, FL washing routines would be helpful. TIA!

Re: 100% vegetable oil based soap

Hmm that seems like a lot of soap - although it would depends on the type of veggie oil I would think. Some oils sud up some don't, I live in England and have hard water and I still only use 1/2 scoop for my laundry using a mixture of veggie soap and backing soda (or is it poweder) anyway the arm and hammer stuff. I would do the recommended with a regular cycle, once the dipes spin out start the cycle again and see if they sud back up, if they do, I would keep doing the cycles until the water runs clear, thats what I did when I first started using a front loader. Also I'm moving to Turkey soon too - where are you living?

Ok, that's a good idea...except Dh will have a heart attack Lolz now that he is paying the water bill here too. And the utility bills here are allegedly astronomical. This is our first week in our home so we have to wait for our first bills to see.
I'm in Istanbul I swear this place can vie New York for the title of "the city that never sleeps".
