Rockin' Green Detergent Review and Giveaway!

   If you're a cloth diapering family, chances are you've already heard of Rockin' Green Detergent.  People swear by it.  People go crazy over it.  I was lucky enough to try it out.  I picked Rockin' Green Classic Rock to review.  Our scent of choice was Rage Against the Raspberry.  Cute name isn't it.  The smell is even better!
   Once you open that bag and smell it, I bet you never thought you'd be so excited to wash diapers  :-P
Don't get me wrong, this isn't JUST for diapers, you can use this on ANYTHING.  Have a blanket you've had a hard time getting clean?  Your nugget's favourite pair of pants ruined?  Try to rock the soak-you may be surprised how it comes out.

   I was overly excited to try this out because J (our daughter) has extremely sensitive skin.  We have tried many soaps, with rashes around every corner.  I do have to say that we seen a big improvement once we switched to Rockin' Green.  It was super easy to use, with great results.  Our diapers were coming out cleaner looking, smelling like nothing-which if you cloth you know that's the best smell for diapers! lol  It kept our diapers soft, and safe on J's bum.

yuckkkk, so glad that's out of J's diapers

   One of the best features of this awesome detergent is that you can "rock the soak".  What exactly does this mean?  
1. Fill your washer with hot water and 3 Tbsp* of Rockin’ Green, along with your diapers.
2. Let it soak for approximately 30-60 minutes. Then launder as usual, skipping the soap. If you have a HE machine, you may have to consult your manual  but you can usually do a soak by pressing the start or pause button.  

Check out this video on how to Rock a Soak from their official site.

I love Rockin' Green, too! It's so great for sensitive skin. I'm so happy that I found a laundry soap that I can buy in scented and not worry about exacerbating my son's eczema! I love the scent of Smashing Watermelons. Rockin' Green is such a great line of the best green cleaning products I know!
