Rockin' Green Review and Giveaway

Have you heard of Rockin' Green?  They are a great company that makes detergents (and other cleaning products) that are environmentally friendly and easy on sensitive skin.  All Rockin' Green products are free of SLS, Phosphates, enzymes or optical brighteners, dyes.  Oh and they are completely naturally scented!  Speaking of scents, Rockin' Green has some super cool names for their scents. Motley Clean, Lavendar Mint Revival, Smashing Watermelons, Bare Naked Babies (unscented), Mighty Mighty Marshmallow, Earth Wind & Orchids, and Rage Against the Raspberries.  They also come in 3 different formulas.  Each is designed to work best in different water types.  There is Soft Rock (for soft water), Classic Rock (for average water, like mine), and Hard Rock (for hard water). 

A great friend of mine over at Life With My Littles has been raving about this soap since I've known her.  Whenever we get a stain, dirty rug, or stinky shoes she always says, "Soak it in Rockin' Green!"  She's always happy to send me home with a few tablespoons too!  So since Rockin' Green was nice enough to send me a sample I figured it would be a great time to test it out on my favorite shoes, my Vibram Five Finger Bikilas!  I wear these shoes every chance I get and they tend to get a bit smelly after a couple days.  So here's what I did...

I received 3 samples of Rockin' Green in the Motley Clean scent (this scent is just divine, I can't get enough of it!).  Each sample will do 2 loads in a top loader or 4 in a front loader. 

I used one heaping tablespoon in a soaking tub, took my stinky Vibrams, and....

...began soaking them in warm water.


I soaked mine over night and this is what I found...

Ewwww...that's nasty!!  Rockin' Green really sucked all the dirt out of these things! 

Now, on to the washer they go!  I threw mine in with a load of towels, added about 1 1/2 tablespoons of Rockin' Green, and started a cold wash.


Once the wash was done, I hung my formerly smelly shoes to dry.

 I am happy to announce that they are currently stench free and ready for wear.  My feet are happy once again!!  Yay!!



I have to say that I am very impressed with the performance of Rockin' Green.  They really got the smell and stains out of my favorite shoes.  The towels that I washed along with my shoes were soft and had a great, light smell. 

Come February when our new little bundle shows up, you can bet your bottom dollars that I'll be washing those tiny, sweet little cloth diapers in Rockin' Green.

Now, for the fun part!!
