When I opened the box the soap was in, I was a little dissapointed that their product packaging wasn't to the same caliber as their website's marketing. This could be because I was only sent a small packet to sample though, so I'm guessing their full sized products come in something other than a zip-loc type baggie. :-) Really, though, the smell of the package overcame any aesthetics. I've never used a scented detergent to clean my diapers in, so I was feeling very luxerious when I got to put something that smells GOOD into my washing machine! I was able to test the "fresh linen" scent and thought it was pretty awesome. The nice thing is that while your washing machine smells good when you use Rockin' Green, it really does rinse out of your clothing so you're left with nothing but the smell of clean clothes (or diapers) when everything's done. We all know how important a clean rinsing detergent is!
Some things I learned about the detergent is that it does clean your diapers and clothes well, but you do need to use the suggested amount. I didn't use enough when I first washed a load of diapers and so had to re-wash them with more Rockin' Green. The detergent doesn't bubble up like commercial ones that cmtain bubbling agents. Don't be misled by this--you don't need bubbles to get things clean!
