I was really excited to try this Rockin’ Green Cloth Diaper Laundry Detergent. Out of the several options available, I immediately fell in love with the scent listed as “Smashing Watermelons.” [ you can see it here ] Let me just tell you, any skeptical ideas on how a laundry detergent that sounded like candy was going to please not only my clothes but my nose, has gone out the window. I probably had a high after sniffing it the day it arrived. Even my husband was like, “Wow! What’s that?” when I shoved in it his face and yelled “Smell this!” before I had the chance to rip it back to my own. I couldn’t get enough of the scent before it faded!
What I think is most entertaining is that they aren’t kidding. You’ll want to sniff this stuff All. Day. Long.
I did some reading before buying this product. I read that while it gets your cloth diapers super clean, it sometimes may need a few soaks to really get the gunk of other detergents hanging on and any smell out. The reason being is that the build-up from other soaps and things will eventually trap and hold onto the gunk. I thought for sure that would be the case for me and my diapers.
That may be true for others, but it was not the case at all for me. The diapers came out clean, smelling wonderful, and feeling amazing. It may have been my imagination, but I could swear they were whiter too.
The fact that its filler and dye free makes it the perfect cloth diaper laundry detergent choice for me. I’m always trying to stay one step ahead of diaper rash due to sensitive skin, and dye free is a plus in my book. I was a little worried about the watermelon smell coming from perfume, but the ingredients say fragrant free. Love the watermelon scent although it really doesn’t do anything besides smell good in the bag, it doesn’t make your clothes smell like watermelon
They currently have three options for detergents; Soft rock, for sensitive skin. Classic rock, for ‘normal’ water and no sensitivity issues. Hard rock, for hard water.
A few more wonderful things about Rockin’ Green:
They also sell diaper pail fresheners, dryer balls, and skin care (if their skin care smells half as yummy as the detergent, I’ll take 2!). I have to say, I have never smelt a detergent yummier than this! I was more than pleased with the physical appearance and feel of my cloth diapers/clothing.
