Washing without detergent

I read somewhere about this anonymous guy working at a detergent producing company.
He said that we're overusing detergents when washing our clothes. That for most of our laundry pure water will do the trick more than well enough and only for the more heavily, I-kinda-rolled-in-the-mud-playing-with-the-dog dirtied clothes we will need some detergent and even then we need to use less than the box suggests.

I've started to reduce the amount of detergent I use but I haven't yet gone cold turkey.

Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? Will I be causing an epidemic soon or just save $ and the earth?
