Rockin' Green Review and Giveaway


I received Rockin' Green detergent in two scents: Earth, Wind & Orchids and Bare Naked Babies (unscented). Rockin' Green is quite different than  Eco Nuts, the product I usually use for my cloth diapers.

Eco Nuts (aka soap nuts) are explained in this post, and here is a picture of the two products side by side:


Whereas soap nuts are little berries in a baggie, Rockin' Green is a powdered detergent. I liked using the detergent, perhaps after using powdered detergent for most of my lifetime makes me feel like my clothes are cleaner when the cleaning agent is in a powdered form. 

The first few days I washed my cloth diapers in the Bare Naked Babies (unscented) detergent, and the diapers came out smelling like... nothing. Which was to be expected, of course. :) The detergent worked well and removed all the bad smells from the diapers. 

The next few days I used Earth, Wind & Orchids, which smelled awesome in the packet. Once the diapers came out, they smelled the same as with the other detergent: like nothing. However, it is possible that I didn't use enough detergent to give my diapers any scent (I only used 2 TBSP, when they advise using 2-4). The important thing is that my diapers were (1) clean and (2) did not smell bad.[*Update*: The scent is supposed to wash out. I stand corrected. :) ]

Rockin' Green carries several different scents, from fruity sounding scents like "Smashing Watermelons" to the smooth "Lavender Mint Revival." 

One awesome thing about Rockin' Green is that their detergents are formulated for different water types. It doesn't matter if your water is hard, soft, or in between, they have a detergent for you!

Another product Rockin' Green carries is called Funk Rock- an ammonia bouncer- that takes care of nasty smells caused by ammonia in your diapers (I want to try this!). 

They also have Femme Rock for menstrual cloths and Dog House Rock for washing chew toys and pet bedding. And did I mention that Rockin' Green is eco-friendly?

  2. The scents are meant to rinse away. Any scent left on your diapers means there's a residue. And residue left on diapers= repelling and other such bad news. So no matter how much RnG you use, your diaper will always come out smelling like nothing (which just means they're clean!)

  3. the scent in RnG is supposed to wash out- it's just to enjoy at laundry time. :)
