When I started my journey to get healthier I never imagine that I was going to find out about all the “bad” things we put in our bodies and our environment. More and more articles are being published every day with toxic substances not only on food products but detergents, cleaner solutions and even personal care products.
When the people of Rockin’ Green, contacted me to send me some samples I was really happy. I have heard about the eco-friendly laundry detergent before, and I was really looking forward to see if it would work on “adult” laundry as well as it does with diapers.
Rockin’ Green Is made of safe, phosphate free ingredients, which are good for the planet, and it works great for kids and adults clothes. The detergent comes in three formulas - Soft Rock, Classic Rock and Hard Rock. (Depending of the type of water in the area that you live in the United States)
Rockin’ Green comes in very nice fragrances: Smashing Watermelons, Earth, Wind, & Orchids, Rage Against the Raspberries, Motley Clean, Lavender Mint Revival, and Bare Naked Babies
I did the first load of laundry on our day to day clothes. I did not change the way I do laundry. I presoaked in our washer and then I run the washer on the same settings I have done in the past. I always use cold water.
The clothes had a fresh nice smell. Even though it is powder detergent I did not see any of the “white marks” I had experienced with other powder soaps.
The second load was of my husband’s greasy work clothes. I was not expecting any good results, because let’s be honest, sometimes ecological products are soft and do not clean as well. To my surprise Rockin’ Green removed some “fresh” oil stains. The water during the soaking process was not as “dirty” as with other detergents, so I was not sure it was going to work, but the clothes look very similar to what they look when I wash them with the detergent we normally use. (They are work clothes anyways, so I was not expecting miracles)
Rockin’ Green also has available Funk Rock for ammonia, Femme Rock for cloth menstrual pads, and Dog House Rock for pets. (I might need to try some for Da Vinci's toys)
So there you have it. Some products that are good for you work as they promise. This is a good example!
One lucky My Life is a Journey reader will win 3 sample bags of Rockin' Green Detergent so you can have clean clothes too.
