Rockin Washing Instructions/Tips & FAQ's

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

First Time User: the mission is to de-funk your diapers!  To get rid of built up minerals and left over detergent do the following:

1. Fill your washer with hot water and 3 Tbsp* of Rockin’ Green, along with your diapers.

2. Let it soak for approximately 30-60 minutes. Then launder as usual, skipping the soap. If you have a HE machine, you may have to consult your manual  but you can usually do a soak by pressing the start or pause button.

Tip: Repeat this process anytime you need a good deep-cleaning. If your diapers have excessive buildup or residue, it may take a few soaks to get them in good condition. For those with really hard water, you may find a quick soak before every wash helpful.

Washing Instructions: washing diapers  and clothing should not be a complicated ordeal. Forget everything that you have heard, and keep it simple. You don‘t need extra boosters or add-ons with Rockin’ Green.

1. Savor the smell of your Rockin’ Green detergent…ahh…yummy….

2. Dump your diapers/clothes  into the washer and do a cold rinse/wash to get the nasties out  prior to the wash cycle. The more water, the better!

3. Add the detergent and do a hot wash. Use 2-3 Tbsp* per load. For HE machines or those with soft water use 1-2 Tbsp*.  Rockin’ Green is good for clothes and diapers. So toss a couple tablespoons in there!

4. Double Rinse.

5. Enjoy your clean fluff!

Continue to use Rockin’ Green to keep the stinkies at bay.

*If you have soft water, you may need less detergent than that indicated. So start with 1 tbs, and go up from there as needed.

Rinsing

Rockin’ Green is a clean rinsing formula, so many people find that they can eliminate extra rinses from the end of their wash routine. Which saves time and money!

Rockin’ Green makes the diaper laundry FUN again!

Is it safe for my diapers?

Absolutely! You don’t have to worry about repelling or buildup with Rockin’ Green. And you only use a small amount with each load of clothes, so it rinses clean. In most cases you don’t even need to do an extra rinse!

Will it void my diaper warranty? 

Many manufacturers have specific instructions on how and what to use when washing your cloth diapers. For example Bumgenius states:

You should only use detergents that are free of dyes, enzymes, perfumes, whiteners and brighteners. Using detergents containing these ingredients will cause damage to your diaper including elastic failure and leaking.

Rockin’ Green is free of dyes, enzymes, whiteners and brighteners. So you can rest assured that it is safe for all diapers. When in doubt order the soft rock version, unscented for the gentlest formulation.

Can I use it on other laundry?

Yes! We use it on all our laundry here, and many of my customers find it easier to use one detergent for all their laundry.

My baby is really sensitive, what do you recommend?

Try the soft rock formula, unscented! It has been tested on some of the pickiest babies around with great results.

Will Rockin’ Green work on my Hard Water? Soft Water?

Yes. Rockin’ Green was designed with hard water problems in mind, so even if you have had trouble finding things that work in the past, Rockin’ Green will surprise you. If you have soft water, you can use even less Rockin’ Green to get the same effect. Begin with 1 tbs, and adjust the amount as needed.

Will the fragrance oils cause problems with my diapers?

There is approximately 10 drops of fragrance oil per 45 load batch so the amount of oil in each load is negligible. We have tested extensively with all types of diapers, and never had a single issue with repelling. So Rockin’ Green is great for all types of diapers, including pocket diapers.

Will Rockin’ Green work on my HE Washer? My Frontloader?

Absolutely!  And because it’s a non-foaming formula, you don’t have to worry about using too much in your HE washer. Just use 1 tbs per load.

What if my washer doesn’t accept powdered detergents?

Most washers have an option for both liquid and powdered deteregents. You simply pop the liquid dispenser part out of the drawer to make it powder ready. If you wish you can mix the detergent with a cup or so of water to create a liquid, and then pour that into your detergent drawer.

Is Rockin’ Green phosphate free?

Yes, Rockin’ Green is 100% phosphate free.

Is Rockin’ Green SLS Free?

Yes! It’s also animal by-product free, never tested on animals…biodegradable….and a bunch of other Mother Earth Rockin’ goodness!
