I use Fels-Naptha to make my own laundry detergent. Works great! Then, I discovered that the soap stops the spread of Poison Ivy oil, so I have anyone who has been exposed wash with the soap. It works great! We keep a bar out at our cabin all summer long. When we're done, I grate it, put in some washing powder, borax and water and use it for laundry all year long!

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.

Disappointed

By

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

About Me Renter

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

Mom used the original back in the 50's to make an old fashion drawing save. That is what I bought it for ! This is completely different ! I won't be able to use it. I do not want artificial smells or dyes. If you must have a "New improved" bar please make the original as well. Guess it is my fault. I bought the "Name" with out checking the web site.

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

Fels-Naphtha was a great cleaning product that was easy to grate and smelled like clean laundry. Now the product has an unpleasant oily texture and smells awful and overpowering. WHY?

Fragrance is Fine

By 

from Sacramento, CA

About Me Homeowner

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

I don't know what the big deal is over the fragrance. I grew up with this stuff. My mom used it on my brothers and me whenever we got into the poison oak. It had an odd yet distinctive fragrance then. I didn't even know they still made this stuff and just recently stumbled across it. I have to say that I much prefer the new fragrance. I can barely smell it at all, whereas the stuff I used back in the 60s had an order you just had to put up with. Bravo, Purex, for improving the fragrance.

Hey Purex! Ditch the fragrance! We want fragrance-free!

By 

from Colorado

About Me Homeowner

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

Purex, you need to IMMEDIATELY get the fragrance and artificial color out of Fels-Naptha! Shall I call, email and write to your CEO and top executives to make this happen? Fels-Naptha was recently featured in at least one popular blog about natural cleaning products. I rushed out to get it, along with washing soda, borax, and whatever else the blog advised me to purchase. Much to my dismay, I discovered I can't use this Fels-Naptha bar because it has fragrance and artificial color. My husband has a skin condition (dishydrotic eczema) and can't use anything that contains fragrances, dyes, or toxic chemicals. Seriously, he starts itching like crazy and his skin breaks out in blisters. It really sucks! I've been washing his clothes in organic pure unscented Castile soap from the Vermont Soap company, and while this is 100% non-itchifying, it requires me to pre-treat stains so vigorously I've developed muscular forearms.

Purex, you have a brand-new target audience/market for your Fels-Naptha bar: Everyone who is seeking a chemical-free healthy lifestyle! Last time I checked, that includes virtually everyone in the $75K+ demographic, the college-educated demographic, the "Good Moms" demographic, the "Great Dads" demographic, the "Health Savvy" demographic, and the "Healthy Planet" demographic. It even reaches across product lines to the "off-the-grid" demographic, which includes a few Duck Dynasty viewers (the ones who do laundry occasionally). With this much popularity, if Fels-Naptha decided to run for President ... .

Hey, Purex! At a time when corporations are salivating over these potential customers, spending gazillions of dollars on focus groups and highly-paid branding consultants, you're oblivious to the treasure you're sitting on: A genuine vintage American laundry product, predating the "super-scary consumer product chemical age" and ripe for rediscovery. Please ditch the fragrance!

Overpowering smell

By 

from Wernersville, Pa.

About Me Homeowner

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

I used to think this soap smelled so good. I could't stop smelling it when I used it for poison ivy. My sister had given it to me to try and I hadn't bought any myself. Never used it on laundry but was reading all the great reviews on how well it cleans so I decided to try it. Went out and bought some, what a disappointment with the smell when I opened it. Will not buy it again unless it goes back to the old scent. It makes me cough. From all the reviews I read I think most people agree the old scent is better. What was the reason for the change when people were so satisfied with it the way it was? SOMETIMES THINGS CAN'T BE MADE BETTER THEY'RE GOOD JUST THE WAY THEY ARE !!!!!

An Oldie but Goody!

By 

from Suitland, MD

About Me Homeowner

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

I remember my mom using this soap on my daddy's shirt collars back in the 50's. I had forgotten about it until I saw it in the grocery store. I picked up two bars to keep near my kitchen sink. I use the soap to wash my microfiber cloths I use to wipe down my wood floors and even my car. Fels-Naptha is the bomb! It gets out grease, blood, dirt, grass stains, cat pee, feces, vomit, I know this sounds gross, but I just want to sing its praises. A lot of folk are complaining about the fragrance, but I like it. Only complaint is that it is kind of hard on the skin, I have to lather my hands in lotion after using it.

Fragance is not the same

By 

from Stafford, VA

About Me Parent

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

I have been trying to get away from chemicals, fragrances and toxins for a year. Steadily changing one product at a time, I have been making my own laundry detergent for almost a year. With 3 adults and 5 kids, we go through a lot of laundry detergent. I just made a new batch and almost couldn't finish it because the fragrance was so heavy. Then I noticed that the ingredients were not listed but referred me to the website. From the list on your website, it would appear to be anyone's guess as to what is in your soap now.
Been using your product off and on for 50 years, but will look for something else now. The ingredients and fragrance defeat my purpose for its use.

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

I have been making my own laundry detergent using gels-naphtha for quite sometime and I have to agree with the others the new fragrance is way to strong. I will have to start looking for a new product if the fragrance doesn't go back to its old self.

It's a great old standby I've used for years, but I don't like the smell now. It smelled better before. Please bring back the old formula and I will keep on buying it and will recommend it.
Not sure how well it will be on irritated skin from poison ivy now with that strong strong smell.
