Laundry Detergent Staining Clothes

I've had twice now where my laundry detergent has stained some clothes to the point they aren't wearable anymore. What am I doing wrong that causes this?

I've been using white powder (Tide) detergent so far, and this rarely happens, but when it does I can't do anything to get rid of the stains. It also never stains an entire load, just one or two items. (Shorts once, a sweater once.) Am I using too much detergent (I use the recommended amount on the box), or is it the fabric, or should I switch to liquid?

I'm guessing it's really stupid, but I'm a college kid! I'm learning. :/
