Rockin Green Detergent Review And Giveaway


Since I started cloth diapering, I have struggled to find a good detergent. I wanted something that was safe for cloth diapers, phosphate and dye free, easy on sensitive skin, and that rinsed away easily. Detergent build-up can be one stinky problem for cloth diapers and I've been there, done that...it's time to move on.

I recently received a sample of Rockin Green detergent to review and I knew that I loved it as soon as I opened my mailbox. I was sent Fresh Linen and oh my freaking goodness, it is to die for! It is all of the things I was looking for in detergent, and then some. Another great thing about it is that it works wonders on stinky funky microfiber. I don't know what it is about MF that makes it get so stinky, but I no longer have to worry about that. A little bit of this detergent will go a long way. You only need 2-3 tablespoons for each load. I've used it on both diapers and regular laundry and I liked the results on both.



If you've read any of my other reviews, you know that I like to talk about the people behind the product. This is another great green product that was developed by a mom who was looking for a solution to a problem. Her kiddos had super sensitive skin and only WAHM products seemed to work for them. Like most cloth diapering mamas, she also battled the stink/build-up issues and needed a better way. She developed a fabulous formula and is able to supply not only her family, but also customers with some green detergent love. Every batch is made in her kitchen and her whole family is a part of making it for you.

You can buy Rockin Green Here. I hope you love it as much as I do. Or, you can Win some by entering this giveaway!

  1. I think I really like that this detergent is priced about the same as a regular brand. That Fresh Linen and Baby Powder both sound so nice! I may have to check this out further!

  23. I loved the scent cards they sell to let you check out new scents to try! I also like their bundled deals. So far they've come out cheaper than any of the detergents I've gone with up to this point and that's including shipping costs!

    My family and I use RnG for all our laundry and we'll be hard pressed to go back to other detergents, let me tell you!

    So far we've found ourselves favoring the cherry lemonade scent as a favorite. We do like the fresh linen and the lavender vanilla, though! We've made a plan to give all the scents a try over time, too!
