Fels-Naptha--Awesome Stain Remover #Giveaway and $500 #Sweepstakes

I have heard of Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar, especially for use in recipes to make your own laundry detergent, but had never tried it until now.  Purex provided me with a sample of Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar in exchange for an honest product review.  I am happy to express my opinions on my experience.

Fels-Napth has been around since 1894.  That's a long time.  And, in my experience, with good reason.  This laundry bar is like a bar of soap.  To use it on stains, you wet the stain, then rub the stain with the bar.  Wait a minute then wash as usual.  I had some stains on a pair of white shorts and my daughter had some stains on a white shirt.  I wet the clothing items and rubbed the bar into the stains.  After tossing into the laundry, I decided to use the bar as a laundry booster.  The directions say to grate 1/16 into the laundry to use as a booster.  1/16 what?  A cup?  1/16 of the bar?  It doesn't specify so I just grated a small amount in with a cheese grater.  It was a load of whites, of which most were dingy.  And of course, my kids think it is okay to wear white socks without shoes outside.  Not to mention dirty hiking socks.

Anyhoo, I am pleased to say that the stains were gone and the entire load of laundry looked whiter and brighter.  I might add that I also like the pleasant smell.  It has a good, clean soap smell and my laundry smelled very fresh.  It is supposed to be great for greasy, oily stains, perspiration, and ring-around-the-collar.  I would think it would be based upon how clean my laundry was.  In fact, I had a little white jacket with a high collar that had a dirty collar.  I didn't even pre-treat and it came out clean!

Here are some before and after photos.  Can you tell how much brighter the clothing is, in addition to the stains being gone?

I use Fels-Naptha bars to make our powdered laundry detergent.


I have tried it before. It is one of the ingredients in my homemade laundry detergent. I love the fresh, clean smell of it and I love how well it works!
