We did a Laundry Detergent Cheat Sheet a little while ago and while publishing it, I was introduced to Rockin’ Green by a reader. Having never tried it I was really curious to and coincidentally I got an email from the lovely Giselle at Granola Babies. If you haven’t seen their site it’s a great little shop that specializes in baby gear centered around a green lifestyle. They carry a large variety of cloth diaper systems, baby carriers and baby essentials for your natural baby. They offer great information for new and seasoned moms on cloth diapering and baby wearing. They also help you in deciding which system is right for you.
Rockin’ Green is no secret to some cloth diapering moms out there, in fact it’s one of the preferred laundry soaps. It’s a simple formula that is designed to just clean and not leave any residues behind like many detergents can. If you are a cloth diaperer, you know that a residue on your cloth diapers reduces the effectiveness of the diaper. Rockin’ Green comes in 3 formulas that are tailored to your water type or skin sensitivity but they are all gentle and safe for use on baby clothing and diapers.
Granola Babies sent me a bag of their Classic formula in Smashing Watermelons and I got to work trying it out right away. I should note that I am not an exclusive cloth diaperer. I’d like to be but it just doesn’t work out that way for us all the time. However I do use a few and I also use cloth swim diapers as well. So I tested it out on my stash and also gave it to my husband to test it on his stinky gym clothes. I then tried it out on my kids laundry. We do a lot of laundry around here and after all my tests I have to give Rockin’ Green a huge thumbs up. It worked stellar on my cloth diaper stash. No residues, no smells, just clean clean clean. Same went for my kids laundry. Everything came out looking great and just smelling totally clean and not masked with fragrance. My husband had some trouble using it on his gym clothes but that’s because he did it wrong and put too much in and (hello! A little patience!) he didn’t have much success. So I tried it out myself and lo and behold, his gym clothes came out stink free. Which is nothing short of a miracle since his gym clothes (he’s an avid runner) are really foul.
GET IT! You can pick up Rockin’ Green in all its various scent options from Granola Babies!
