About mudpies

Not only do we have 5 boys, we also have 2 dogs and 2 cats.  When I came across Doghouse Rock Pet Bed and Toy Detergent by Rockin Green, I was really interested.  Most detergents are designed to leave something behind. It could be fabric softener, fragrance or optical brightners. This residue is a breeding ground for dirt and bacteria and is toxic to your pet’s delicate system. Doghouse Rock doesn’t contain any of those.  It is a clean rinsing, residue free detergent that is safe for all your pet’s bedding and stuffed toys.

 

I used the detergent on a couple of our dogs’ blankets.  This is our Maggie and Sammie 🙂

 

 

A few of weeks ago, they decided to confront a skunk in the backyard.  It was not pretty!  The smell was HORRIBLE!  It took 2 weeks for the smell to fully dissipate from the house and 2 vinegar baths for the dogs to smell better.  however, it tends to reappear when they get wet.  According to our vet, this could be the case for months.   Because of this, the blankets still have a slight skunk odor at times.  I couldn’t wait to see how   Doghouse Rock worked on them.  I followed the directions and did a warm water rinse first and then washed the blankets on a normal cycle.  I was really happy with the results!  The blankets came out clean and odor free!  Even the underlying skunk smell was gone 🙂  Rockin Green detergents are safe for all washing machines and you only need to use 2 tablespoons per load.  I really like knowing that not only is the detergent safe for my pets but it’s also safe for the environment.  Even the bag is made from recycled materials!

Rockin Green makes many eco-friendly laundry products including Classic Rock.   It’s  great for cloth diapers, regular clothes and everything else!  It’s available in several fragrances including smashing watermelons, motley clean, and lavender mint revival just to name a few.  You can also get unscented detergent.  You can find all Rockin Green’s products HERE.

The people at Rockin Green have generously offered the chance for one of our reader’s to win a 45/90 load bag of detergent in the winner’s choice of scent/formula!  to enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below.

I recently went to a weekend women’s retreat with my church.  I was really looking forward to it.  It started with some excitement when we found out the town it was in was right in the the middle of the path of a major storm!  So, we all gathered in the basement of the conference building for the first little bit.  Thankfully, it wasn’t bad and after some hail and rain, we were able to move back to the main room.  We enjoyed a great speaker and some awesome music by the group Alathea.  LOVE them!  The weekend was filled with fun and fellowship, laughter and tears.  It was so nice to recharge a little.  Plus as a bonus, we happened to really close to the outlets and got some shopping in 😉  I came home refreshed and anxious to see my husband and boys.  And I have to brag a little and say that I came home to a nice clean house 🙂  What about you?  How do you recharge?

I don’t know about you, but we are always needing cereal.  With 5 of us in our house, we can easily eat an entire box for breakfast.  When I heard about a giveaway for 5 FREE boxes of General Mills Cereals I wanted to share it with you.  Starting tonight at midnight EST Naddez’s Tidbyts is hosting a giveaway.  The giveaway will open through March 11th.

Meanwhile, leave a comment and let me know what your favorite cereal is.  Here we eat a lot of Mini Wheats, Raisin Bran, Bran Flakes and Cheerios.  However, my favorite cereal to have for a treat is probably Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Yum!
