    Yes no problem.

    "Cold Water" detergent is merely formulated to dissolve quicker and more efficiently in cold water than "normal" detergent.

    If it's liquid then hot or cold is okay. But if it's a powder,warm or hot only.

    sure.

    In fact I bet there is little difference in the actual ingredients of the detergents.

    Yes. But if you have a machine that regulates cold water with the addition of a little hot water or live in a warm place, cold water might work for you and certainly save you money. (I wouldn't do this if your cold water was below about 65F/18 C.)

    I suggest you try using cold water. There have been studies that show cold water works as well as hot water for getting clothes clean.
