Rockin The Rockin Green!

Before I started cloth diapering, I was very intimidated on how to clean the diapers without ruining them. As a matter of fact, if there was something that was going to turn me away from cloth diapering it would have been the laundry detergent. I hated the fact that I couldn't just go to any grocery store and buy the detergent I needed. That it had to be "special" detergent or take the chance of my diapers repelling and getting ruined.

Before I gave Rockin' Green a try, I tried two other "safe" cloth diaper detergents and I was doubtful that Rockin' Green would work better than what I was already using.  But after washing just a few loads of dirty diapers, I fell in love with this product.


There are three different formulas that come in several different scents. The formulas are soft rock, classic rock, and hard rock.  Soft rock is designed for people with sensitive skin, or those who are lucky enough to have soft water or use a water softenerClassic rock is for average homes with mild to moderate hard water or those who are battling with stinkies.  Last but not least is hard rock and it is for those with hard water and the most troubling water types.

The scents they come in are:
-Mighty Marshmallow-Smashing Watermelons
-The Plain Green Tea's
-Rage Against the Raspberries
-Motley Clean (My personal favorite!)
-Lavender Mint Revival
-Bare Naked Babies (unscented)

I used classic rock when I lived in Charleston, SC and hard rock while visiting my Mom in Missouri.  My mom lives out in the country and has hard well water.  Each time I've used Rockin' Green my diapers have came out fresh, clean, and for the most part, stainless.

When I first received Rockin' Green in the email in June 2010, I decided to do the ultimate test on a particularly stained white t-shirt.  My daughter had smeared strawberries all over it, and I had given up and considered the shirt as a total loss.  I forgot to pre-soak it and it sat in the bottom of the hamper for about a week before I finally got around to it.  The detergent I was previously using did not get the stain out.  So I decided to give this "Rockin A Soak" a try.  On the Rockin' Green package, it states that if you have a bad stain or stinkies to soak the garments or diapers in hot water with a few tablespoons of the product.  So I filled my sink with hot water and tossed in 2 tablespoons of Rockin' Green.  I swished the t-shirt in the solution and let it sit overnight for 12 hours.  The next morning, I rinsed the shirt under the faucet and then ran it through a wash cycle with no detergent.  I was surprised to pull out a clean white t-shirt that I thought for sure was ruined!!  To my surprise, Rockin' Green got the stain out!

In my opinion, with Rockin' Green, not only are you getting a great all around detergent, but you are also getting a stain fighting detergent that will work miracles on your clothes and diapers.  Since I have switched to Rockin' Green, I use it for all of my laundry and have not had any issues.  I can honestly say that I can't think of one negative thing about this product, and I would recommend it to anyone whether they cloth diaper or not!
