Cali's Rockin' Her First Giveaway

Rockin' Green Laundry Detergent

I know I mentioned it in my intro, but I am a cloth diapering mama.  While that on its own is an entirely different blog entry, it is how I found what I am about to tell you all about.  Laundry detergent!  HOORAY!  Only mom would get excited about laundry detergent.  When using cloth diapers, you must be careful how you care for them and that includes washing.  You can’t use many of the main stream detergents. Certain dyes, enzymes and scents leave buildup that will make your diaper repel moisture, which is obviously the opposite of what you want in a diaper right?  That buildup will also attract and trap dirt, again the opposite of what you want, for anything you wash.  My search for that perfect detergent led me to RockinGreen; it is everything I was looking for, and MORE.   

First off, it’s not only safe for cloth diapers, but it is obviously good for your everyday laundry; secondly it smells amazing!  It makes one of my least favorite chores, delicious!  It is phosphate free so what makes it good for sensitive skin also makes it a good choice for the planet!  Did I mention it smells deliciously amazing?  It comes in three formulas: Soft Rock for those that have soft water, Classic Rock for those that are in the middle, and Hard Rock for those of us that have hard water. 

Now for the fun (and incredibly embarrassing part).   I know a lot of you are thinking “okay great, it’s good for cloth diapers, I don’t use cloth diapers”.  My first challenge… How do I relate to everyone?  I know… SHEETS!  Everyone uses multiple sets of sheets for you and your little ones.  So I filled up my bathtub and “Rocked a Soak” with my Rockin’ Green.  What is that?  Well it’s simple; I soaked our sheets in our tub with three tablespoons of the detergent.  Rockin’ Green will pull all that buildup from detergent, minerals from the water, and well… just plain dirt. First I ran our sheets through a quick cycle in the washing machine with my old detergent, just for good measure so they are just as clean as they would be for anyone else trying Rockin’ Green after another detergent.   The results were, well… amazingly, embarrassingly, disgusting!  My sheets after only a half hour into a soak:
You can soak in your tub like I did, or just in your machine.  The website has a great guide as how to rock a soak, and how to use it depending on your machine.  Now if you will excuse me, I must go clean my tub after all that!   A little birdie told me that maybe just maybe Rockin’ Green will have something for that soon, in the form of an all purpose spray cleaner. 

So wanna try some Rockin’ Green on your stuff?  Well we will pick one lucky reader to get a bag just for them! Here's how to enter:

Giveaway ends Friday, July 2nd at 7:00 pm EST. Good luck and thanks for entering!

Mandatory Entry:
1. To enter go to the website at http://rockingreensoap.com/  Take a look around and let us know what scent you want to try and if you have soft or hard water. 

Bonus entries:
1.  Like Rockin’ Green on Facebook  (I recommend checking out the pictures of things other fans have soaked)

2.  Become a follower of this blog or subscribe via RSS

3.  Like The Mad Mom on Facebook

4.  Do something “green” and come back here and tell us about it.  Two entries if you post a picture of it!

Hmm...the Lavender Mint Revival sounds awesome... but I suppose I should do unscented for the diapers?

Something Green I have done is switched to recycling! Our house now creates so much less trash.
The other thing Green I have done, as well as thrifty, is REUSE. We are expecting our first baby this August and instead of creating more waste& pollution we have bought almost everything used for baby and decided to cloth diaper (buying& trading only used diapers!)
Used stroller: (Saved over $200)

We have been pretty "green" today. We decided to cloth diaper our 11 wk old, then bought an entire stash of diapers preowned off craigslist. We washed them and hung them to dry outside. Then made a colorful cloth diaper flower (see profile pic).

After that we cleaned out our nursery and donated everything we didnt want to the new battered womens shelter down the street.

We would love some classic rock lavender mint revival to keep our diapers at their finest :-)

Jessica said...

Doing something green:

I use gDiapers, with the biodegradable inserts, and instead of tossing them or flushing them, I use them as compost for my garden out front. Switching to full cloth once I have my own washer/dryer. I definitely plan on using RnG now that I know about it. (I'm new to the cloth diapering world, and so far I love it!) I recycle my old coffee cans by turning them into flower pots, and my watering can is a recycled milk jug. How can I upload pictures of that? Not familiar with this website! Via facebook maybe?
