So obviously, finding the right detergent for your household is paramount if you want to be successful in your cloth-diapering ventures. There are a number of variables that need to be considered. One of the biggest is what kind of water you have in your home. Do you have hard water? Soft? Somewhere in between? YES, this makes a difference! If your detergent is not formulated specifically for your water type, it may not be as effective as you'd like. Luckily, Rockin' Green has you covered there. They offer a cloth diaper and laundry detergent in 3 different formulations, unique to specific water types. They have Hard Rock for those with hard water, Classic Rock for those in between, and Soft Rock for those with soft water. Here's a handy map so you can figure out what kind of water YOU have:
I have had many problems over the past year of cloth diapering finding ways to get my diapers clean enough. Between having an HE washer and using detergents that gave my babies rashes, it has been a journey with a lot of trial and error. One of the only detergents I have always found to be effective, gentle, and reliable has been Rockin' Green. Rockin’ Green is free of dyes, enzymes, whiteners and brighteners. So you can rest assured that Rockin' Green detergents are safe for all diapers. The scented version does contain natural fragrances, so for those worried about warranty issues order either the soft rock version, or the classic or hard rock formula, unscented. I personally LOVE the scents that they offer. I especially love Mighty Mighty Marshmallow and Lavender Mint Revival. They have a ton of different scents, all with very fun names that music lovers like me can appreciate.
Rockin' Green is wonderful for cloth diapering, but it is also great for normal laundry, too! So if you have family members with sensitive skin issues, definitely give Rockin' Green a try. I have even used Rockin' Green on carpet stains! With 2 babies and a dog, we definitely have our share of accidents on the carpet and furniture. Rockin' Green has taken care of these stains gently and easily.
You can also sign up for their 52 Weeks Of Clean newsletter! Every week, you'll receive helpful cleaning tips, cloth diapering answers, and much, much more. Another reason I LOVE Rockin' Green is their customer service. If you ever have any questions or cloth-diapering dilemmas, you can shoot them an e-mail and they will do their best to answer your questions and offer solutions. At Rockin' Green, they truly are experts of the art of CLEAN.
I have always had wonderful experiences using Rockin' Green detergents. I used another brand for awhile because it was on sale, and had nasty ammonia funk issues, and Sophie got a nasty rash out of the ordeal. I solved this problem using Rockin' Green's new product, Funk Rock, an ammonia bouncer, and I switched right back to their detergents. Lesson learned.
I highly recommend Rockin' Green to anyone who cloth-diapers or has family with sensitive skin issues. Plus, they use only biodegradable, eco-friendly ingredients. Even their scents are 100% natural! This is much better for the earth, as well as for baby's cute little booty! Did I mention that Rockin' Green is also a PTPA Award Winner? That speaks volumes right there as to the excellence of their products.
