How much tide powder do you use per load?

I just bought a box of tide to try, and it's powder. I'm used to using liquid. how much powder do you use w/o getting sudsy issues? I don't want to have to rinse 10 times before the suds are gone either , so i'm curious how much powder to use.

I use the recommended amount (top line for large loads, medium line for medium loads, etc). I use mostly bg pockets and I have not had any repelling or stink issues. I also wash on cold 80% of the time.

I use a full scoop for a full stinky load of diapers. Works great and no issues!

I have a FLer and I go halfway to the 1 line but I also do two extra full wash loads for rinses. I am less worried about the suds as I don't care for the perfumey (is that word, lol) smell.

I use a little under the 1 line for 15-20 diapers in a top loader.
