FLUFF BUTT: Rockin Green Soap

One of the biggest challenges one faces when cloth diapering is getting your wash routine correct. You'd think it would be so easy, just throw the diapers in with some soap and go, right?!?!

WRONG! You have to consider different factors, and try, try, and try again, in order to find the right combination so that your diapers don't leak or STINK!!! (Factors such as washing machine, water type, diapers, ect.) Another thing you have to watch out for is diaper detergents! You can't use just ANY detergent! You have to look for ones that are enzyme and dye free, among other things.

So when I heard about Rockin Green Soap, a detergent MADE for cloth diapers, I knew I had to try it! I contacted Kim and she was awesome enough to send me a sample of Rockin Green Soap in my choice of scent! There are many wonderful scents, but I'm partial to clean scents so I chose the baby powder scent!The day I received it, I could smell it as soon as I opened my mailbox! It smelled soooo good!! I immediatly took it inside and put it to use. Rockin Green Soap's instruction state that first-time users should do a 30-60 minute soak in hot water with 3 tablespoons of detergent. WELLL I was never a very good listener and decided to just wash straight away. So when I took the first diaper off of Caden after using Rockin Green Soap, I was a lot of sad that I still had the stinkies!

I put the soap aside, and went about trying to fix the stinky problem. Then one Monday I was partaking in the Twitter cloth diaper chat and asked how to fix the problem. Kim happened to be on and asked if I had done a soak with the soap... which I sheepishly admitted I hadn't. She gave me the instructions once again, which this time I followed to a tee. AND GUESS WHAT?!?! No more stinkies!I now have been using it for a week or so, and couldn't be happier with it! I need to order some more, and now my biggest problem is what scent to try next!! Rockin Green Soap just launched some new fall scents. I'm dying to try the Pumpkin Crunch and Peppermint Cocoa!

Wonderful information from the Rockin Green Soap site:

Rockin’ Green is:

  • Dye free
  • Comes in several yummy scents (& an unscented version)
  • No fillers
  • No enzymes or optical brighteners

  • Works wonders on microfiber stink!
  • Perfect for cloth diapers
  • HE compatible
