Welcome to my Birthday Blessings Bash event! It is my intent to celebrate the lives of my two little boys by pouring out blessings upon my blog followers! My youngest turned one in January and my oldest turns one today *sniff*
This is going to be fun!
From now until February 10th I will post 1 new giveaway each day *some of which will be joint giveaways with other bloggers!!! (which means more stuff for you to win)! Each giveaway will stay open one week from the day it is posted. The last giveaway will be posted on February 10th and will close February 17th. You will have plenty of time to enter!
The first item up for grabs is a bag of Funk Rock from Rockin' Green! Today is also a joint giveaway day!!! April, over at Marine Parents....Toughest Job in the Corps has decided she wants in on the fun.... and is offering one of you a chance to win a fitted cloth diaper (in choice of fabric) from Bum Covered Diapers! (details on how to enter her giveaway are listed below!
I know many of you have tried Rockin' Green Laundry Detergent and LOVE it (especially on your lovely cloth diapers)! I did a review on Rockin Green detergent back in October and fell in love with it! I must admit, I have been using ONLY Rockin' Green on my diapers for the last month or so! I just love how clean it gets my dipes.
As a mama with two boys in cloth the ammonia smell can be pretty strong! There is just something about the smell of urine that seems to intensify with the age of your baby!
So I decided to give Funk Rock (aka Ammonia Bouncer) a try. I didn't really realize that my diapers still had a bit of an ammonia smell to them (yes, even after using Rockin' Green) until I used Funk Rock!
This is what I received:
The instructions for using Funk Rock are simple:
1. Throw everything in the washer, sink, tub, or bucket.
2. Add 4 Tbs of Funk Rock with hot or warm water.
3. Let it soak for 30-60 minutes.
4. Rinse, and wash like normal using Rockin' Green detergent.
Now, this is where some people have claimed to have a bit of trouble. They follow the above directions, BUT do not do an overnight soak in Rockin' Green BEFORE using the Funk Rock (as recommended on the package).
So, in order to get the stinkies out, you have to do an overnight soak with Rockin' Green first for those of you new to Rockin' Green, this is what is called "Rockin' a Soak" Here is a great video that shows you just how to get that soak rocked!
I wish I could capture the ammonia smell somehow to display it here for this review! But, you will just have to take it from me, that the smell was so bad it made my eyes water!
So first, I rocked a soak...
Then, I put 4 Tbs of Funk Rock into my washer as the hot water ran.... mixed it all up, then added all those diapers back in. Waited an hour and ran the normal wash cycle!
It works great. Some of my older diapers (that I've had for over 2 years) came out looking brand new, and the smell was totally gone! HALLELUJAH!
I am sold... and you will be too!
This is a 'must-have' item for all you cloth diapering mama's out there! Trust me!
You can purchase Funk Rock (Ammonia Bouncer) from the Rockin' Green website for $12.95 (+shipping). Rockin' Green usually has several coupon codes out that make purchasing from them well worth it. Coupon codes can be found on their Facebook page under the sale tab!
You can also purchase Rockin' Green Funk Rock on Amazon for $16.06 (which seems a bit steep, but considering you get free shipping, its a great deal)!
So, you can hunt around for the best deal to buy it, or you can win it here!
