rockin' green

we've found a new laundry detergent for our cloth diapers and it's awesome! when i originally started cloth diapering, i researched online about how to treat them, what to wash them with, etc. one of the sites i found said that it was okay to use tide to clean them. even though it seemed like the diapers were clean and overall smelled okay, they just always seemed to have a mild lingering odour to them. so after purchasing my grobaby shells from sogreenbaby.com, i noticed they had something in their "laundry care" section called rockin' green cloth diaper detergent. i thought i'd give it a try. i went to their official website (www.rockingreensoap.com) to get the low-down on the how-tos, etc. so they said that initially if you've been using other soaps that aren't clean rinsing, you might end up with a major case of stinkies as all the guk that's been living in the diapers gets released. so i did an initial hot soak with the rockin' green, and then a wash with no soap. that seemed to do the trick. i've since washed with rockin' green a couple more times and gone is that mild lingering odour that was there before. even better is that rockin' green soap is dye free and 100% phosphate free so it's good for the environment and for baby's sensitive skin. we bought unscented to use on our diapers, but rockin' green also comes in other fun scents:
  • Orangevana - orange and cream combine together to reach a new level of cleaning awareness.
  • Smashing Watermelons- this juicy watermelon blend is like a kick to your senses.
  • The Green Tea's - the zen like blend of green tea and aloe, is sure to make it to the top of your playlist.
  • Rage against the Raspberry- this raspberry and honey blend will have you running around the laundry room looking for the mosh pit!
  • Mötley Cleän - there's clean and then there's Mötley Cleän. This fresh blend has hints of ocean, fresh linen, and sunshine.
  • Lavender Mint Revival- this medley of lavender and mint is like nothing you have heard or smelled before!
  • Bare Naked Babies- because we love the smell of babies, we offer an unscented variety too!
next time i think i'll get a scented one to use on our regular laundry!
