I have used the Fels Naptha Bar for years and I opened a newly purchased bar and the color was bright orange and the texture was soft. The original bar was hard milled and I would grate it for an addition to my wash load...the new bar is soft and the grater turns out curls and not finely grated particles. That is not all....the smell is not an odor that represents clean laundry aired on a line during a sunny day...it smells like cheap perfume.
The changes to this "old faithful" are a shame. Ordinarily I would rate the item with 5 stars. Sorry.
Please return to the original old faithful bar..
Thanks

I have been using Fels Naptha Soap to make my own laundry detergent for years. I would prefer a fragrance free version. I love this soap, but I gave it 1 star because of the fragrance, and because you have shrunk the size, but not the price. I had a bar of soap I forgot about in the cabinet & asked my husband to pick up a bar so I could make soap. After grating the soap, I went to retreive my other two ingredients (super washing soda & borax). I found the forgotten bar. The old bar was 5 1/2 oz, and the new bars are 5 oz. I only noticed because the packaging was different & Purex was more predominant on the front. Also, I noticed Purex removed the ingredient list, and asked comsumers refer to the website for ingredient list. Very disappointing.

Please go back to using the old formula

By 

from Saratoga, New York

About Me Homeowner

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

Changing the formula turned a great product into one that is just fair. Grease does not break down as easily as before and the scent is hard to tolerate. Fels Naptha wasn't broken. You should have left it alone.

Don't like the new formula

By 

from Chico. Ca

About Me Homeowner

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

I have used this product off and on for 20 years on the recommendation of my grandmother. I bought a new bar today and it is a completely different product. The smell is overpowering, The texture of the bar is crumbly. I sliced about an 8th of the bar with a knife like I usually do and it crumbled. I put it on a plate and my son thought it was cheddar cheese. The list ingredient list is very long and can't possibly be the same as my grandmother used. You have lost a customer. Please go back to the original formula.

Cut the scent back at least by half!

By

About Me Homeowner

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

Have used this as a pretreater, and have also used it as a laundry soap.. 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the grated soap in a top loading machine. New bar I just got..well scent is close to original, but WAY too much. Cut it down or cut it out. Long time user?
And advertise thus bar on T.V and in women's magazines! You sell more. Works great to get makeup off wash cloths ect

I would still recommend this soap

By 

from Crossville TN

About Me Renter

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

I know the bar has changed, and it has far too much fragrance for me. But it still works on getting my laundry clean when I pretreat. I do wish that the company would make the fragrance lighter. The old formula was fine. Please go back too the old formula.

This is also good on bug bits, as well as laundry. You just wet the bar and make a paste out of it and you let it sit on the bit for jus t a few minutes and the itching will stop.

It ain't what Mom used to use!

By

About Me Homeowner

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

Fels Naptha was always Mom's "go to" for tough stains. Mom and her friends would save their beef, pork, etc. fat all year and then make soap with just fat and LYE and it wasn't 1/4 as TOXIC as this product. Always love and miss you Mom!

I use this to get stains out of everything. My kids from blowout diapers to spilling pretty much everything. It gets permanent marker out. It's saved me so much money! I tell everybody about this miracle bar. It's amazed a lot of people I've given it to. It's worked better than a lot of other products I've used. Even for my carpet stains!

Chemically Sensitive - NIX the horrible scent!

By 

from Raleigh, NC

About Me Homeowner

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

The rating I give this current product is a -5 due to toxic chemicals in the overpowering scent.

I haven't had my own home for 16 yrs... recently moved into my own place and last night purchased a bar of Fels Naptha for stains etc. When I took it out of the grocery bag, I was "knocked over" with and incredibly horrible toxic chemical cloud!! I had to put it outside immediately! WHAT did you do with the Fells Naptha I used to use??? Unless it's changed back, I won't be able to use it because of chemical sensitivities that I live with...

In case you aren't aware, the number of folks with allergies and chemical sensitivities is astromical now because "everyone" fills their products with SO MUCH toxic chemical perfume... people who use them have become a walking "toxic cloud" due to the scents in their laundry soap, dryer sheets, deodorant, hair products and perfume and cologne etc. If I come within 6' of someone in the parking lot or store with this "toxic cloud" engulfing them, I have to move farther away or put on a charcoal lined face mask.

Your product DOES N.O.T. NEED TOXIC CHEMICALS TO DO IT'S JOB!!

There is NOT one person on this planet who is deficient in toxic chemicals, PLEASE take them out, please!!!

Get rid of the perfume!

By 

from Indy

About Me Homeowner

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

I was so disappointed when I opened my recently purchased bar of Fels and noted the strong perfume. Please remove this as it causes allergic reactions for many family members. Going over the ingredient list, I'm sure there have been changes to the original recipe and I would say not for the better. Please go back to the Fels-Naptha that we are used to!! I would only recommend this product if I had a choice to purchase the original.

My son plays baseball all over the country and Fels-Naptha keeps his white pants looking new no matter how many times he slides! The dirt and grass stains are no match for Fels -Naptha! And the best part is it doesn't take a lot of time or elbow grease to get the tough stains out!

Perfume again

By 

from Surrey, BC Canada

About Me Homeowner

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

I purposely bought this soap because I was told it did not have perfume. Well low and behold it does and it is real bad. When something gives you migraines and you try to get away from it it rears its ugly head again. Why do all the cleaning products have scents? I don't understand. Into the garbage it goes.

Disappointed

By 

from Putnam County, Florida

About Me Professional

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

Searched on line for the Colgate laundry bar and found one store in my area. They stopped carrying it. As last resort went to the big W - - - and found they did not carry it. Instead they stocked Fels-Naptha. Years ago had used it, thinking it was the same. Not finding the ingredient on the cover, bought 3 bars to save a 30 minute trip. Even told the checkout lady it was a simple basic soap without all of the unnecessary colors and smells. The other laundry bar has none of these things. Will order the Octagon bar on line and pay shipping. Then throw these bars in the garbage. I like the exceptional rinse from the Big "O" when it is used as a bath soap. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeese offer the original "no fragrance, no added color" to Fels-Naptha.

Scent free please

By

About Me Housekeeper

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

I will try the fels-Naptha for the first time today, since childhood. Like many of the other reviews, I was very very disappointed that the fragrance was not as I originally remember. Actually the color is different also. It use to be more brownish or tannish. Now it is golden. Please return to the original formula. I gave the product two stars two because I believe the reviews that stated that it stills works very well. I will go and try it today on my own laundry. however, I am very sensitive to artificial fragrances and I will probablly not buy it again untill you offer the original version as well.

Amazing, really!

By

About Me Parent

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

I spot treated my expensive sports clothes (shirts) after trying a variety of remedies. Fels-Naphtha soap bar from Purex is pure genius at work, to put it mildly. Yonex self wicking competitive Badminton clothes as well as Nike, Adidas, Under Armor, Fila and other tennis shirts look like they never had a stain after they dried on the line.
I'm totally sold on the stuff. All I did was spot treat and scrub lightly and vigorously depending on the stain and voila they disappeared right before my eyes in an instant.
Highly recommend! Be sure to use gloves when doing this and store the remainder of the bar in a ziplock bag and put away under the sink until next 'magic trick', lol! Thx a bunch Purex!
Real cheap to obtain and great bang for the buck too! Wow!

Why the new overwhelming fragrance?

By 

from Portland, OR

About Me Parent

Comments about Dial Fels-Naptha Stain Pre-Treatment Laundry Bar:

I have used Fels Naptha for years with great success. I went recently to buy a new bar and found new packaging, a smaller bar AND a very strong fragrance. Since my daughter is allergic to most fragrances, I am hoping you still make a fragrance free bar. Or do you still have some of the older product in stock? I'm not sure how I will organize wash days without Fels Naptha. Distressed Loyal Customer
