Boost your current laundry detergent by adding some vinegar and baking soda.
I don't use laundry soap that has dies and perfumes in it. I use Armand Hammer - unscented. I use less than what they specify in the instructions and I boost it with vinegar and baking soda.

This is cheap and compares to Tide with Bleach Alternative. Use 2 Tablespoons per load. Mix equal parts: borax, washing soda, Oxygen Cleaner, and powdered SUN laundry detergent. This really gets the stains out and whitens and brightens! Any powdered laundry detergent can be used in the recipe and mix it in a ziploc bag that has been closed! You can use Oxyclean for the Oxygen cleaner, but I use the off brand
