FELS-NAPTHA giveaway!

 (Disclosure:  I received a bar of Fels-Naptha for my review.  All opinions shared are my own and are not persuaded in any way.)

 I have always seen the FELS-NAPTHA bar in the laundry aisle but have never actually used it.  Being a Purex Insider I was given the opportunity to finally get to try it out.  When I received it, I noticed it had a good scent to it.  Like a fresh, clean scent.  I started researching ways to use it.  You can use it as a stain remover by wetting the bar and rubbing it on the stain.  You can use it as a booster by grating some into the load of wash.  I decided to make my own detergent with it.  I have always wanted to make my own detergent, so why wait?  I had all the ingredients now. 

 For the recipe that I found and tried, I used:

  • 1 bar of FELS-NAPTHA 
  • 1 cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda
  • 1 cup of Borax
  • 1 cup of Purex Crystals

I used a knife and cut the bar of soap up into cubes.  After that I put it in a blender to get it nice and fine.  Then I added the rest of the ingredients to the blender and mixed it all together.

I had an empty Purex Crystal bottle that works perfectly as the container for the detergent.  The top is also a great size to measure out the mixture.   This detergent smells really good. 

This recipe does not make the water bubbly.  The water is soapy, I had to feel it for myself to be sure.  After this load of laundry was complete, I looked at the clothes.  They look clean.  They smell really good.  This is definitely a detergent that I will be making again.  And I think it is pretty cheap.  I still have pretty full boxes of the Borax and Washing Soda so all I will need to purchase again is the FELS-NAPTHA bar which is really cheap.  


  It's easy to use! Simply rub the stain with a wet bar of Purex Fels-Naptha and wait a couple of miutes.  Ten wash your clothes as you normally would and say farewell to tough stains for good.  See for yourself why America has trusted this powerful stain remover for over 100 years.
