You know what I love about cloth diapering? I’m never bored. And I never have to worry about money burning a hole in my pocket!
Despite my complete satisfaction in using Kirkland’s Environmentally friendly detergent, I always have this guilt for not using something from a WAHM.
There is something so special about supporting a family, not to mention the pride in using a product that you know was made in the kitchen with the help of the whole family.
When I saw that a “neighbor” had created a natural laundry detergent and one that was perfect for my hard water, I knew I had to try it.
Rockin’ Green Detergent is lovely. The scent is not overwhelming, but perfectly pleasant. Before using Rockin’ Green I thoroughly stripped my cloth diapers. I wanted to make sure to get an accurate assessment of how this detergent works in the long run.
So far I am pleased with the performance. I always encourage the use of hand-made products. This is one you won’t be disappointed with.
Before I tell you more about Rockin’ Green I have to tell you a story. Kim, the GADbaby mama, also sells Green Acre Designs (GADs) cloth diapers. I always assumed that Kim was the creator of GAD.
Why? Because she has done an amazing job of establishing herself as the GAD website. It wasn’t until I clicked on her “contact us” page that I discovered she was simply a lover of GAD cloth diapers.
As a WAHM that runs an internet business and is very familiar with internet marketing, I must say Kim has me impressed. Not to mention, GAD cloth diapers are arguably the best pocket diaper available and that has me coming back to her website many times a week (to window shop of course ;) ).
If you haven’t tried a GAD pocket cloth diaper, you are missing out on the trimmest pocket I have ever used. They fit like a glove and now you can even choose a luxurious bamboo inner!
GIVEAWAY!! Kim has generously offered a chance for one reader to win a GAD cloth diaper in their choice of insert and color! (details below)

Here’s what a few lucky testers had to say about Rockin’ Green:
– I’m amazed and thrilled that your detergent didn’t break my baby out! My diapers have never looked better!
–I just want to tell you that after many many washes with your detergent I can’t bear to use anything else! It is fantastic for our water and gets my dipes so so so clean. Much better than anything else I have used. Thank you! And if you ever think you are going to stop making it please let me know so I can make a LARGE order.
– I love, love, love the detergent, so I will be back for more. It was like a cloth diapering miracle! Now, what the heck do I do with 30lbs of unused Country Save?
-It is fabulous. It’s wonderful!! I need more!!
– I liked it! Used the last of it today and want more.;)
– Clean diapers, no stinkies and no extra rinses. Liked it a lot!
