Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar Reveiw and Giveaway

This may seem like an odd product to review, especially since it can be considered a sort of "dated" product in this age of sprays, gels, and technology.  But after still being around for 100 years, this proves to be a tried and true stain removal method. I love the old time wrapper too. 
Purex Fels-Naptha is a solid laundry bar soap that fights oily, greasy, and perspiration stains, dirt, ring around the collar and much, much more.
This bar works very similar in the same way that you would pre-treat laundry stains with sprays, etc. 

Unbeknownst to me I dripped something on my pink tank top :(
And wouldn't you know I had several stops to make that day!

I wet the stain and the Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar.
Rubbed into stain, which made a sort of lather.
Started the washer and tossed in my load of laundry.
 I added my tank top, that was pretreated, in last.
This allowed the Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar 
a few minutes to work it's magic.

This was the first time I've used this bar as a pretreatment for stains. I do, however, use it as an ingredient in my homemade laundry detergent and love it.


Yay, just like new!
Here's a few more uses for
Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar .  

Homemade laundry detergent
3 bars Fels Naptha, grated
1 box Borax  
1 box Washing Soda 
1 box Baking Soda
2 containers of  oxygen bleach (Oxyclean or off brand)
1-2 containers of  Purex Fabric Softener Crystals
Mix all together and use 2 Tablespoons per load

Clean Your Shower/Tub and Sink
Rub a wet bar of  Purex Fels-Naptha on a sponge and wipe down the bathtub/shower. Rinse.

Dish Soap
To make your own, dissolve 1 part Purex Fels-Naptha
 in 2 parts water.

To remove grease or ink wash with
 Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar     

Poison Ivy Prevention and/or Treatment
 If you think you have been exposed to poison ivy, oak or sumac, shower immediately with Purex Fels-Naptha to remove the resin from your skin, and it will help to dry up the rash, as well. This will greatly reduce and in most cases prevent any skin reaction to the poison ivy oil. Make sure to launder your clothes in some grated Purex Fels-Naptha to remove the resin from your clothes. Poison ivy resin can stay on your clothes for over 1 year even if the clothes have been washed with normal detergent.

Cold/Fever Blisters
To dry up, was affected area with
Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar and rinse.
