I don't mind doing cloth diaper laundry. To me, it's not really a huge deal. Just toss all of the wet stuff into a pail or wet bag, and when you're ready to wash, wash the cloths all together, and there you have it... clean cloth, ready to hug your baby's bum. What I do mind is when the smearies and the stinkies don't come out of the cloth! Sometimes, no matter how long or how many times you've soaked something, the stains just don't want to come out, and over time, cloth can become stinky-smelling, even when it's clean! Also, if you have a hubby like mine, they don't always check for stains before they throw something into the dryer. So, what's a momma to do on laundry day when she's got a pail full of stained cloth? Get rockin', momma... with Rockin' Green Cloth Diaper Detergent!
Finally... a soap specially formulated for cleaning cloth diapers! Rockin' Green totally rocks my laundry room! Rockin' Green is made of phosphate free ingredients, which means it's safe for the planet and safe for your little ones! I love knowing that the cleaning products I'm using at home are safe for Balian to be around, and now that I'm trying to be a little more green, I love that it's safe for the earth, too!
Three Different Formulas...
Rockin' Green has three different detergent formulas to choose from. Why three? Glad you asked! Rockin' Green was designed for different water types, which depends on where you live. It's important to choose the formula that corresponds with your water hardness #. If you don't know it, you can have your water professionally tested... it's usually free. You can also use this handy chart...
Rockin' Green comes in seven awesome scents! Their names are pretty cool, too. I was sent Rage Against the Raspberry, and I love it! I can't decide which sent to try next! Don't worry- the scents are safe for the diapers. They make your laundry room or closet smell amazing, and the scents (which are natural, by the way) just simply wash away, so you smell a deliciously clean scent on your cloth... not funky stuff!
1. Savor the scent of your detergent!
2. Dump diapers/clothes into the washer and do a cold rinse to get the yucky stuff out prior to the actual wash cycle. The more water, the better.
3. Add the Rockin' detergent, and do a regular wash cycle. Use 2-3 Tbsp. per load.
4. Double rinse.
Now, I thought that this was going to be pain-staking and involved, but it's not. Trust me, I don't have time to spend an entire day messing with laundry, so if it wasn't a quick and easy deal, I wouldn't do it and definitely wouldn't be telling you about it. My experience with Rockin' Green has been great! It's a safe detergent that does what it says- it smells awesome and really gets the cloth diapers truly clean. I can't tell you how many times I've had to re-wash loads of diapers with other detergents, and there's one whose name I won't mention that I won't even use to wash my cloths with, because it does such a poor job! I don't think I could ever go back to using regular detergent for the cloth diapers. I love the way it smells, and I love that the diapers come out absolutely clean after one load washed. Plus, you can use Rockin' Green on way more than just cloth diapers! Check out these great other uses! I can't wait to try washing yucky food-stained bibs with RNG. All in all, I love this product! I hope you'll give it a try!
