Ruby Moon Detergent Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED

To round out this month celebration of my cloth diaper favorites is one of the most important things for cloth diapering parents besides the diapers.....Cloth Diaper Laundry Detergent!!!!

I stumbled upon Ruby Moon in my long search for different kinds of natural detergents.  I was drawn to Ruby Moon products because of her experience with mainstream detergents was like mine.  I also love to purchase WAHM detergents and lotions because I've found that they use high quality ingredients with allergies in mind.

We received our bag of Ruby Moon cloth diaper detergent in the scent of Sweet Clementine.  I loved how light, tangy and not too overpowering the scent was.  It is such a refreshing smell.  The powder is a nice fine powder and not sticky at all.

We are currently in an area that has moderate hard water but we have a water softener.  I tried out Ruby Moon and realized there was a big build up of minerals and other detergents from our extreme hard water at home.  It took two wash cycles with 2-3 tbsp of detergent each for the diapers to smell clean in the washer.  I was shocked to see them so white, but even better than that they were all so fluffy too!  I haven't found my normal routine with any of our detergents yet with the new water and washer, plus I think that the extreme heat and humidity doesn't help either.  I am so grateful to have the Ruby Moon though, because it has made stripping my diapers a breeze!  To strip with Ruby Moon I do my cold rinse, followed by two hot wash cycles with 2-3 tbsp of Ruby Moon in each.  They come out so clean, soft and smelling fresh.  It works so much better than any other way to strip that I've found, plus it takes less time and less washing and rinsing cycles!
