Is Rockin Green HE detergent?
Yes! Rockin' Green is ideal for all HE washers. Use one scoop for HE machines and two for traditional top loaders.
How/ where can I find my water hardness level?
Check out the water hardness map to determine the water type in your area of the country. You can also use a water quality test strip to test your water at home. This will help you determine which Rockin’ Green detergent is best for you! Need something more specific? You can search your zip code here: http://www.zerowater.com/ (hard water is classified as anything with a water hardness level over 180)
I'm getting some skin irritation after washing my clothes. What's up?
If you feel like your clean laundry is irritating your skin, you are probably using too much detergent. All of Rockin’ Green’s detergents are super concentrated, so a little really does go a long way, every time. Be sure to stick close to the guidelines of 1 scoop (1 Tbsp) per load in HE and front loaders, 2 scoops (2 Tbsp) for top loaders.
What are enzymes? Why so much controversy over detergents that have them in the cloth diapering community?
Enzymes are substances produced by living organisms that act as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction. The issue that individuals in the cloth diapering community have with enzymes, is that there is one specific enzyme that attacks excess fiber, to prevent pilling. It is common for parents in who cloth diaper to pass down their cloth diapers after their babies have outgrown them, so they want a detergent that isn’t going to eat away at the fabric. The GOOD news? Rockin’ Green doesn’t use that particular enzyme, so our detergents are ideal for those who are cloth diapering.
How is Rockin' Green different?
All of our products are plant-based, biodegradable and non-toxic. They’re never tested on animals and are vegan, gluten-free, SLS/SLES-free, paraben-free, free of optical brighteners and are safe for sensitive skin. Need a more visual guide? Check this out!

How to get rid of Ammonia and diaper stink?
Our Funk Rock product was designed to combat the dreaded ammonia build up! Do a soak with your laundry and 1-2 scoops of Funk Rock for approximately one hour, then wash like normal. Target ammonia at the source!
What ingredients are in Rockin’ Green?
Our products consist of a proprietary mix of all natural detergents, some water softeners (depending on which variation your use), plant derived ingredients, natural chelating agents, and, depending on the product you use, cloth diapering and fabric-safe enzymes.
How do I deal with yeast in diapers?
To best combat yeast, it's important to understand a little bit about your opponent.
The first thing you are going to want to do is treat the rash. You can try a cloth diaper safe cream, or try coconut oil, to protect and allow the skin to heal.
Once you have the skin covered, you need to focus on how to kill the yeast. Which is a two part solution.
First, consult with your doctor about ways to kill the yeast in the digestive track. This could include things like nystatin, an increase in yogurt or probiotic intake, etc.
Repeat the process until every diaper in your stash is treated, being careful not to cross-contaminate loads.
What product should I use if I have sensitive skin?
All of our products are safe for sensitive skin, but if you’re still concerned, go with our unscented detergents.
What’s the expiration date of your detergent?
We recommend using our products within 2 years of purchase.
How do I Rock a soak with Rockin' Green?
Do we offer Samples?
Yes! You can find them here!
How do I use Funk Rock Ammonia Bouncer?
Add 1 Tbsp of Funk Rock to a pre-wash cycle to eliminate stinky build up and keep it from coming back, or use a couple of tablespoons in a deep cleaning soak as needed for an intense cleaning treatment.
