A genuine antique! It's been in my knick-knack case for a long time.

I remember an acquaintance telling me about his ancestors hoarding a crate of Fels Naptha and hiding it under the bed during WW2 when there was rationing of such things.

Isn't that funny, Plum? I wish my mom was still alive so I could ask her if she or her mom ever used it.

Plumpossum

Thanks, jals and Laura. There was a time when Fels Naptha was THE laundry soap!

laurajane

I was reading the comments. Everybody knows this soap, but I have never heard of it before!

Now I want to try this. I used to use a white bar soap, like Dial or Safeguard to get stains out of little people's pants when they were potty training. Worked great.

It is hard for anyone to sell me anything. (blood from a turnip? Doubtful.)

This morning when I opened my gmail, I had an email from Amazon showing me seven variations of Fels-Naptha. Evidently it is made by Dial Corporation. Be careful what you talk about, wherever. Aritficial intelligence will link it to someone who is trying to sell you something. Welcome to the 21st century.

Thank you Kossamu for the info. I am going to try it.

@lilmidge
The boxes of Super Washing Soda can be found by Borax and Fels-Naptha Soaps at the supermarket..It’s basically a laundry booster..❤️❤️

Bommom

Just seeing the wrapper makes me able to smell it. Funny what memory can do to you (or at least me).

I use it still as a laundry pre treat. Works wonders

lilmidge

Kossamu, you're detergent combination sounds interesting but what is the super washing soda?

Kossamu

I mix grated Fels Naptha Soap with Borax and Super Washing Soda and have used this combination as laundry detergent for the passed 10 years and no way I’m going back to buying store bought detergent ever..
Hope your bar of soap is worth something more than .10 cents❣️

I still use it!!! :) It's great at getting out stains and was my "go to" solution to dirt and crud when our son was in high school and played soccer and baseball.
Santa brings me a bar of Fels-Naptha ever 4-5 years.

lilmidge,
Oh my gosh! That's what I used it for! Definitely cuts those oils, but it would just about strip my skin s-o-o dry! I didn't care, as I'd rather have dry itchy skin than yucky poison ivy rash!
lad I wasn't the only person who had to use this.

I think my sister (long gone) found this in an antique store or thrift shop or something like that. I wonder what it might be worth? (Please don't tell me: 10 cents. tsk...)

lilmidge

I got mine in a grocery store.

Bill_I_Am

Yup! That's the stuff I remember. I think you can still find it in stores but I haven't really looked for it. Just seems like it has always been there.

lilmidge

I have used this on my poison ivy in the past. Works wonders.
