Soap that won't kill plants?

I have a crazy idea involving my washing machine, its outflow, and my garden, but there's a little problem involving suds...

I'm trying to conserve water, and I realized that the pipe connecting the outflow of my washing machine could be redirected to spill out over a patch of my (currently rather bare and boring) backyard. The problem, of course, is that washing machine wastewater still has the detergent in it, and I don't think that's very good for plants. What I'd like to know is if there's a way for this scheme to work - are there plant-safe detergents out there? Preferably ones that won't break my budget?
