Rockin' Green Detergent Review and Giveaway!!

Rockin’ Green Detergent

My Review of Their Classic Rock:
Oh my goodness, I LOVE this detergent. I was weary at first with buying a detergent off the internet without knowing much about it, but I am so glad I did!
Around November, I was having a terrible time getting rid of the awful "diaper stench." I tried putting hot water on them and soaking them with vinegar for hours. I tried soaking them in Dawn Dish Soap. I tried soaking them in Tide detergent. Needless to say, none of these attempts worked. The stench still stayed, and I was still unhappy and annoyed.
 On Black Friday, I finally caved in and purchased a 45/90 load bag of Peppermint Cocoa from Rockin' Green. It was a great deal-- 50% off!! By the next week I had received my package and immediately tried it out! I literally walked in the house, put the baby in her bouncer, ripped open the package, and started to gather the diapers.
I got my stinky diapers ready, soaked them in the Rockin' Green detergent for a little over an hour and POOF! the stink was gone! I ran them through the washer after the soak and was shocked completely. We have an HE washer and have a terrible time with getting rid of the suds left from other detergents. Well, Rockin' Green does not give me that issue. I only have to wash and rinse the diapers twice instead of 4 or more times. A HUGE plus!! That being said, it cuts my laundry time in half!
Needless to say-- I'm making Rockin' Green Detergent my cloth diaper detergent. No doubt about it!!

My Review of Their Hard Rock:
After using the Classic Rock for a couple of months, I noticed I had to soak my diapers each time I washed diapers. It was getting a little frustrating. I then realized we were having hard water issues. I bought some Calgon and began adding to the washer, and it seemed to help some. But I was still a little annoyed I needed to add stuff instead of just using one product. 
Then Kim from Rockin’ Green made an announcement… Hard Rock is out! She had a giveaway, and I was the lucky one to win a free bag. Once I got the bag, I soaked the diapers for most of the day and had to soak them again because the stench was very built up. After the second soak, my diapers were no longer stinky- they smelled brand new!! 
Since I have been using the Hard Rock detergent, I haven’t had to soak them to remove the smell. I just rinse the diapers, then add 2 tbsp to each load, let it wash and then rinse them a couple of times.
I am very satisfied with this product, as well as their customer service.

Here is some of their information from their website:
