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?
Feels-Naptha soap. Yes or No?

In the ongoing effort of cleaning up the third floor earlier this week, I found a stash of postcards and greeting cards, some handmade by my kids, written or scribbled upon and saved. Saved by me cause I couldn’t bear to pitch them. Even a dot matrix computer printer card, made by the kids for me. A folded page of Murphy the Airedale’s inky footprints before any of the grandkids arrived and then I found a card with the addition of “baby” when Anna was expected.
Numerous photographs, too.
Happy Mother’s Day greetings, a partial collection.
