OK, I admit it. We have been having some issues with diaper stink. I know just about every cloth diapering family faces this, but I was in denial about it ever happening to us. I did everything I was told. Washed with Rockin’ Green Classic Rock every other day, started with a cold wash (no detergent), followed by a hot wash (with detergent), and ending with one or two cold rinses. Then we hung the pockets to dry and dried the AIOs and inserts in the dryer.
David is almost a year old and we just recently started having stink issues so I guess we’ve done pretty well, but it bothered me…a lot. I tried everything. Washing over and over to get rid of residue, soaking in Rockin’ Green for hours (even overnight once), drying in the sun and nothing seemed to help. Whenever I would open the dryer when the inserts were done this wave of hot stink would hit me. It really wasn’t horrible, but it was enough that I knew that something had to be done.
Then I heard that Kim was developing a new formula of Rockin’ Green. Really?!? Something stronger?? Count me in!! As soon as the new scents came out I order three samples. They were bombarded with orders so it did take a little longer to get here than usual, but they arrived! The new packaging is great! No busted bags or leaks, woohoo!
So anyway…of course as soon as it arrived I wanted to try it out. I haven’t rocked a soak yet, but even just washing them in the Hard Rock made a HUGE difference! There’s barely any odor now! I’m sure if I soak them for a few hours it will be completely gone, I just didn’t have time today.
I have to admit, I miss the old scents. I love that the new scents are all natural, but I’m going to miss Cherry Lemonade, Cherry Almond and Monkey Snacks So far I’ve only tried the Orangevana and honestly I’m not a huge fan. It smells like something orange that my grandmother used to have in her house. I usually love everything orange or citrus scented, but this must smells like a combination of orange and old lady. It’s probably just me because I’ve heard from a lot of other people that they love the Orangevana. Hopefully I’ll like the other two samples better.
