WFMW--Rockin' Green Review & Giveaway!!! CLOSED

As a Mom of 6 kids I've done a LOT of laundry over the years. I've always used standard commercial laundry detergents. When we bought our HE front loading washer almost 5 yrs ago, we switched to using liquid detergent exclusively. ALL has been our brand of choice for the last several years, mainly because none of us are allergic to it. Since I've started getting more and more obsessed with cloth diapers, I've been reading a lot about natural detergents and how much better they are both for your clothes and for the environment. I've never had any trouble with using ALL Free & Clear on my diaper laundry, but when I heard about Rockin' Green, a laundry detergent specifically for cloth diapers, I was intrigued. I wanted to know more. Rockin' Green is made by a work at home Mom. She developed the formula for this detergent to get her diapers clean in hard water conditions and not irritate her baby's skin. She is also an online distributor for Green Acre Designs pocket diapers. I met her on twitter and knew almost instantly that I needed to try both a GADBaby diaper & her yummy sounding detergent. I ordered Melanie an Ocean Blue PUL GADBaby with bamboo velour lining & a hemp insert and since Kim offers flat rate shipping I decided to add three samples of Rockin' Green to my order.

Melanie LOVES her GADBaby diaper, it is so soft. It's also one of the trimmest cloth diapers I've ever seen. Since it is a side snapping pocket, Melanie has never even tried to take it off. When the package arrived it smelled like fresh baked goodies! The outside of the envelope said "Fluffy Mail". We couldn't tear it open fast enough. We ordered Cherry Almond, Brown Sugar & Vanilla Butter Cream. We didn't have enough diapers for a load, so we ran a load of towels in the Cherry Almond. The scent in the laundry room was heavenly!! I really expected my towels to smell like cherries & almonds, but when I transferred them to the dryer they just smelled CLEAN. After drying they were fluffier & cleaner than they have seemed in a long time. I decided right then that I would start using the Rockin' Green on all my laundry. Since Rockin' Green is a powdered detergent, I had to adjust the detergent drawer on my washer to insure that the detergent was properly distributed. Rockin' Green makes almost no suds at all so it is perfect for my HE washer. I put a measuring spoon in the bag of detergent & measure out 2 tablespoons per load...my clothes, towels, sheets & diapers have never smelled cleaner. I know a lot of people use one kind of detergent for their general laundry and another kind for their diapers, but I've discovered that using one detergent for EVERYTHING is so much easier, plus I don't have to worry about any of the "regular" detergent residue getting on my cloth diapers.

Rockin' Green comes in 12 delicious scents.
  • Fresh Linen- Blend of Lily and Jasmine. Comparable to Bath & Body Works Fresh Linen.
  • Baby Powder- smells like freshly powdered baby.
  • Cherry Almond- yummy cherries mixed with almonds. Best Seller!
  • Vanilla Lavender- a soft fragrance of yummy vanilla and lavender.
  • Monkey Snacks- A tropical blend of Banana, Coconut, Lime, Orange, Grapefruit, Bergamot, and Clove. Smells like Banana Laffy Taffy! Best Seller!
  • Lemon- a clean, crisp lemon
  • Cherry Lemonade- Blend of Cherry, Lemon, and Berry. Reminds me of a Cherry Limeade from Sonic!
  • Brown Sugar- sweet brown sugar scent. It’s like fresh baked cookies without that pesky oven.
  • Cucumber Mint- a refreshing blend of cucumber and spearmint.
  • Ocean Rain – Blend of Ozone, Sea Spray, Orange and Rose
  • Vanilla Buttercream- it’s like a cupcake without the calorie guilt! Best Seller!
  • Berries & Cream- Strawberries, Raspberries and Cream. Think red and pink starbursts.

An unscented version is also available.

Rockin’ Green is:
Dye & perfume free
No fillers
No enzymes or optical brighteners
100% Phosphate Free
Vegan
Great for sensitive skin
Easy rinsing formula
Works wonders on microfiber stink!
Perfect for cloth diapers
HE Compatible
Reusable packaging
Great for all water types
Economical at .13 cents a load!

Rockin' Green Soap is currently available on the Rockin' Green website and the GADBaby website. It will soon be available from several other cloth diaper websites and retailers. You can purchase a sample of any scent for just $3 including shipping!!! A sample will wash 10 loads in an HE washer!

I highly recommend this detergent to anyone who does laundry....this is definitely not a cloth diapers only product!

Kim has generously offered a full size order of Rockin' Green for one of my readers in your choice of scent. A full size order will wash 45 loads in a conventional washer or 90 loads in a HE washer.
