Odors happen. Every home has dozens of sources of odors that can be quite unpleasant. Even with careful cleaning, odors can remain on soft surfaces like upholstery, drapes, pet bedding and pillows. And, not all of those soft surfaces can be easily washed or dry cleaned.
To address those odors, companies have introduced fabric refreshers like Febreze, Casite Fresh Fabric and Tide Swash. Now, Rockin Green has added an odor neutralizer & air freshener to its line: Melody Room Spray.
Melody Room Spray
Melody Room Spray is Rockin Green's odor neutralizer and air freshener for your home, car, boat or gym locker. It is safe to use on all fabrics and is made with all natural ingredients. The ingredients make it safe to use around children and pets. And, if you can't find a fragrance you like, you're just not trying. The spray comes in Lavender Mint Revival, Bare Naked Babies, Earth Wind and Orchids, Smashing Watermelons, Rage Against the Raspberries, Motley Clean and just for the holidays - Red Hot Apple Cider.
The product is a liquid formula that is dispersed by a non-aerosol pump spray. The bottle is plastic and can be recycled. The formula should be shaken before every use and sprayed directly on the fabric or in the air. Listed product ingredients:
An eight ounce bottle of Melody Room Spray has a suggested manufacturer's retail price of $8.95.
About the Rockin Green Company
Rockin Green is a fast-growing small company that was founded by Kim Webb in 2009. Ms. Webb and her husband developed the detergent formula after searching for a way to clean diapers for their son. As they tinkered with the formula, they shared the results with friends and soon the demand for the product was established.
Based in Texas, the product is manufactured in the United States. The product contains no optical brighteners or chemicals that can coat fabrics and lessen absorbency or irritate skin. Ms. Webb, a marketing major, says the fun names come from a collaborative effort within the office as employees share their favorite rock band groups' names.
In addition to Rockin Green detergents, the company offers Funk Rock - an in-wash ammonia odor remover, Dog House Rock - a pet bed & toy detergent, Femme Rock - a cloth menstrual pad detergent and Shake it Up - a diaper pail freshener.
Ms. Webb and the company have won several awards including the 2011 Stevie Award for Women in Business as the fastest growing company of the year and one for best entrepreneur. The product is also endorsed by the MACT (Mother Approved and Child Tested) Awards.
Laundry Guide Recommendation
I gave the Motley Clean scent of Melody Room Spray a try. It had a pleasant - slightly fruity or bubble gum - scent which was not overwhelming or heavy. First I did a quick spray of my dog's favorite pillow. The water-based spray dried quickly and within a few minutes, the pet odor was gone and was the Motley Clean scent. The pillow had no smell. I like this - clean has no smell. I don't like a heavy perfume scent that lingers "forever".
I also gave the shower curtain a quick spray. My shower curtain is washable but I don't like to take it down every week. Melody Room Spray just gave it a quick pick-me up and added a freshness to the bathroom.
I would recommend Rockin Green Melody Room Spray for use in freshening fabrics. My only areas of concern are the price per ounce and the limited availability. You must order the spray directly from the manufacturer.
