Turn powder into a jug of liquid laundry detergent?

We usually use liquid but bought some Tide powder a few months ago when it was on sale for dirt cheap.
Since liquid is less messy than handling powder, is it possible to fill an empty liquid jug with part powder and use a ratio of water to make it a stored liquid?

We already find putting slightly diluted liquid (not the powder) into a spray bottle works well as a SprayNwash substitute.

Also, anyone do this? http://planetgreen.discovery.com/home-g ... -soap.html

When you put the powder into your washing machine, it dissolves into a liquid solution.

If you already think handling powder is messy just using it directly in your machine, then you're in for a world of foamy pain once you start trying to blend home concoctions with it.

I suggest just biting the bullet and using up your oversupply of powder, then returning to liquid when it goes on sale "dirt cheap".
