Fels-Naptha Bar-Yes or No?

Manufactured since 1894 the label proclaims. . Fels-Naptha Soap.

The ingredients that can cause cancer have been removed. Good to know

When I saw this Fels-Naptha in the store the other day, my mother came to mind. She’d run a wet bar on soiled shirt collars and cuffs, on hard to remove stains from laundry. Scrub the spot then put in the washer

It works to remove poison ivy oil, too.

Who buys it still? And uses it?

  1. It can be finely grated and then used in the washing machine. The advantage to this is that you have no plastic container to dispose/recycle.

  2. I can see how the wrapping would bring back memories. When I was a child everybody used it. We still do. I have afresh bar in the basement just waiting to be opened. I use it to clean grease from my hands after working on my cars and motorcycles. It is good for cleaning paint from my hands. I also soak my brushes in a solution of it. There is are many more uses.

  3. My moether washed me in it when I fell into the poison ivy. I used it on collars and cuffs when I was still turning them to extend the life of a shirt. Ah, the good ole’ days.

  4. Yes, I use it to make my homemade laundry soap. I always make a 5 gallon container and it works like a charm. Great to use the bar directly on stubborn stains also. Even have my family making it now, cost is pennies to make and it’s excellent.
