If you're a cloth diapering parent and haven't heard of Rockin' Green laundry detergent by now, I'd have to say you've been living on some secluded desert island. Rockin' Green is a flagship among the many diaper detergent companies emerging, but did you know that they make many more products to help with all your natural laundering needs?
Rockin’ Green is an award-winning manufacturer of eco-friendly cleaning products designed to make cleaning easier and greener. Most well-known for their clean-rinsing laundry detergent formulated for use on all fabrics and especially useful on cloth diapers, Rockin’ Green produces detergents for hard, soft and normal water conditions (known as Hard, Soft and Classic Rock varieties).Rockin' Green was originally formulated by Kim Webb, a cloth diapering mama, back in 2009. Like many moms, she was looking for a better way to clean diapers and laundry for her family's sensitive skin while keeping things as natural as possible.
Rockin' Green comes in three formulas: Soft, Classic, and Hard Rock for different water types around the country based on their pH balance.
I received three sample sized packs of Classic Rock in the scent Smashing Watermelons to try out. In hindsight, after looking at the map, I probably should have chose Soft Rock for my area's water type, but Classic Rock still works great!
The smell of Smashing Watermelons is pretty fabulous! I loved scooping it out and dumping it in the water purely for the aroma that came from the washer afterwards, it seriously made my small laundry room smell so nice. While the scent was great in the washer, I found that it didn't really linger on Jace's diapers after an extra rinse, which is good and bad. I like that Rockin' Green can completely rid our clothes/diapers of any nasty poop/dirty smells and leave them fairly scentless, but I miss the lingering scents of the old detergents we used to use. Totally a sacrifice I'm willing to make, though.
The best part? Rockin' Green makes natural based products for your other laundry needs, too! Everything from Funk Rock to cure your diaper ammonia woes to Femme Rock for help with mama cloth cleaning. Rockin' Green has got you covered.
