How much liquid detergent?

I just bought some liquid detergent for the first time. How much should I use for a full load of diapers?
It is sun free and clear by the way which I hope is ok! I readon the pinstripes and polka dot site it was pretty ok for diapers.
Thanks!

I use regular Sun and I only use a tiny tiny amount...just about enough to cover the bottom of the lid. I have never had stink/buildup issues since I switched to Sun!

I was told to stay away from any Free and Clear detergent

I use liquid ALlens and use about 1/2 ounce

I don't think you need to stay away from every free and clear detergent. Some of them are good, some are not.

I use purex free and clear. It works great. I believe that sun free and clear is also on the "recommended for diapers" list.

I just use a tiny bit of purex in each load too. Basically just enough to cover the bottom of the cup.

Would this be enough for hard water?
