Question Sun detergent

How much do you use?

We have HARD water. I'd been using Planet detergent and doing fine with it but going to buy it (across town at the whole foods store) is a pain in the rear so I picked up some Sun. It's surfactant only, which I think is great. I always add a scoop of Washing Soda to my loads. So how much detergent should I use? I threw out the scoop that comes with it, btw. I'd rather using a measuring cup or spoon so I get it the same every time. I'm weird like that.

Washing routine:
cold/cold cycle with 1/2 c vinegar, with a presoak
hot/cold cycle with 1/3 c washing soda, detergent, and a presoak
hot/cold cycle as a rinse

We have a top loader. I mainly use prefolds and flats. I have a couple BG 2.0's and Flips covers. The covers only go in the detergent wash and then hang dry.
