Funky Butt No-More: Rockin' Green Review and Giveaway!

As most of our readers know, we're a loud-and-proud Cloth Diaperin' Family. There's rarely a day that I don't talk to someone about the wonders of cloth diapering, trying my hardest to persuade them to make the switch out of 'sposies. It's probably annoying I'm sure. Regardless, Beatrice Kate is nearly sixteen months now and we've been cloth diapering for over a year. I think it's safe to say that in that time, I've become a "cloth diaper expert". In my head.

I've tried nearly every diaper detergent on the market. I've even tried making my own (yea, that fancy Chemistry Degree doesn't work so well outside of the lab). But hands down, the best detergent I've found during my tenure as the Cloth Mama has been Rockin' Green.

Ah, Rockin' Green. How I love thee.You remember, right? It's one of my favorite things (and has been on the list for a while now). As sweet and sugary of a little girl Beatrice Kate is, her two-day-old diapers are a force to be reckoned with. Toddlerhood has not done her diapers any favors and the smell of ammonia is enough to make a Navy SEAL gag.

That's why I jumped at the chance to review Rockin' Green Detergent's new REMIX formula. I got to sample scents in Rage Against the Raspberry and Bare Naked Babies ('cause I'm greedy like that). The scents are perfect, in my opinion. Not too powerful, but enough to make laundry a more pleasant experience (Well, at least it helps lessen the burning sensation my eyes experience when I first dump Bea's dirties into the wash)

Let me tell you- nothing, and I mean nothing, has done a better job at getting rid of the smellies like this stuff.

Oh, and if you're all about saving Mother Earth, then you'll love this: It's safe for Baby and for the environment. They leave out all of the yucky stuff like phosphates, fillers and dyes. It's especially great for babies with sensitive skin like, ahem.... my husband child. And, if you live somewhere with hard or soft water, they've got you covered with three different formulas to suit your needs!

Don't have a baby? What about 6 cats? Dogs? A teenage son? Rockin' Green can be one of your favorites too. I've used it on everything from baby clothes to stinky towels to dog beds and the result is the same- clean, fresh laundry. Their web site shares all kinds of alternative uses for the product, besides just washing diapers.

So, now that you're all, "Oh, man. This stuff sounds awesome. I can't wait to try it"; I've got some good news. How about the chance to win a FREE 45/90 load bag!?! Here's how...

And, even if I had purchased it on my own, the opinion would be the same: It ROCKS and I would recommend it to anyone, anytime.*



  1. Just became a follower of your [awesome] blog. I'd probably pick the Motley Clean scent :)

  2. Already a FB fan of Rockin Green, but said hello to them :)

  3. We use a variety of cloth diapers, but my favorite is probably good ol' prefolds. :)

  4. With three little ones, ages 6, 5 and 3, there are PLENTY of ways I can think to use Rockin' Green Soap... from grungy towels, to handprints on the walls!

  5. Yeah for reviews and giveaways!!
    Already a follower. I think I'd choose Rage Against Raspberry too.

  6. Love this! We use it to wash the dogs' "laundry", 'cause who likes the smell of wet dog??
    We are, of course, already a follower!
    we are now "friends" with rockin green on facebook!
    I love them all, but want to try motley clean! love that fresh laundry smell!
    Our favorite cloth diaper is now the flip, but i've heard best bottom might be worth a try!

    I think that's all, but if I had a blog I'd add you!

  7. I Like Rockin' Green on Facebook and told them you sent me over!

  8. Your button is on our blog! Hopefully our 6 readers will check out The Raleigh Collins!

  9. My favorite cloth diaper was Thirsties Duo Diaper. It fit O perfect, but not C. If I could have found one to work for both, we would have been set. You still gave the best and most comprehensive info I have ever read. Not annoying one bit. Thanks!

  10. I would use Rockin' Green for my husband biking and golf clothes. Those stink up the laundry room fast. Plus, he would be the talk of the trails smelling like Raspberries!

  11. Added your button to my blog, as well as posted a link to this giveaway! :)

  12. I just became a follower! I totally agree with how awesome Rockin Green is. I would probably choose Bare Naked Babies, because I haven't tried it and I want to see if My son's bottom stops being red with unscented.

  13. I already LIKE rockin green on fb.

  14. my favorite diapers are bumgenius 3.0 because that's all we've ever had and they work for both my twins. I'd like to try other kinds, but only if I can buy them for next to nothing! I registered for 6 bumgenius when I was pregnant and loved them. Just trying to get the stink out and find out why my son's bottom gets red.

  15. Aside from using Rockin Green for my diapers, I was all my twins clothes and my dogs' blankets and towels. Get alllll the pee and poop smells out of My house!

  16. I follow you! I want to try their Motley Clean SCent!
