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.

About Me Homeowner

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

I have been using Fels-Naptha all my life (my mom raised me on this stuff) but I am extremely disappointed in the "latest and greatest" version. I understand the re-branding nonsense that occurs when one company adsorbs another but I am so frustrated by the recipe changes they feel they must make as well, whether to turn a higher profit or to just change things up for the heck of it. This product is well and truly ruined with the horrible scent, dyes, and soft consistency. I have always taken a bar with me when travelling, especially internationally, so that I can wash my clothes while on the road. I was not pleased with the results of this latest purchase and sadly, will never use this product again as is. I truly hope someone reads these reviews, gets their head in the right place, and brings back the original, or at least the version before the re-branding process.

Disappointed newby

By 

from Kalamazoo MI

About Me Homeowner

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

I am a newby to Fels-Naptha, literally just made up my own detergent last night. I expected the grating process to be more powdery and less like shredded cheese. I was extremely disappointed to have to look up the ingredients and on top of that to find talc as like the third ingredient.

This stuff rocks

By

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

So about a year ago, I found Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar. It has been around for over 100 years but I never heard of it. This stuff is amazing removes paint, grass stains, oil, dried blood (I know gross) and even that mystery stain. This stuff rocks

Not What It Used to Be

By 

from Newark, DE

About Me Professional

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

As a professional painter/finisher, I have used Fels Naptha to remove the paint thinner/solvent residue in my natural bristle brushes for many, many years. It rinses out completely and leaves the bristles soft and flexible for the next job. It is not as good now as it was years ago. I wish they would bring back the original formula.

FABULOUS FOR QUILTERS

By 

from TX/ON

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

After quilting for 20 years, I can't believe it took me this long to find this product. Completely unscented, it will go a very long way (I use 4:1), and want to avoid aerosols. Quilters need to know about this product!

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

I have been using Fels-Naptha for a very long time and have always loved it. But my last few purchases have really disappointed me there is no fragrance at all anymore I always really liked to way it smelled I don't think I will buy it anymore to be honest now it smell more like a mans hand cleaner and I know there has been changes to the soap. The color isn't even the same, I don't understand why companies with a great product have to change it for the worse.. I don't think I would recommend this anymore.

Scent is WAY too strong

By 

from Minnesota

About Me Homeowner

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

I'm new to using Fels Naptha for making my own laundry soap but the smell is so intense and makes my lips tingle....not in a good way. The scent is WAY too strong. It smells like chemicals and I was using this as a more pure and natural way to launder clothing. The smell makes me think I'm pouring chemicals on my clothing. It is very unpleasant smelling. Please cut the scent bad.

Why the change?

By 

from NJ

About Me Professional

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

I used to use Fels Naptha when I would make my homemade laundry detergent as part of my attempt to decrease the amount of chemicals in my home. However, I have been recently disappointed with my latest purchase. The fragrance is way too strong. I thought so when I picked it up in the store, so I looked for the ingredients. They are not listed on the package. You have to visit the website for that information. That should have been my first clue that something was not right. When I got home, the strong scent did not dissipate like I'd hoped it would, and the color of the bars was not what I remembered. When I read the ingredients, I understood why they weren't printed on the label. I was very disappointed to find so many less-than-pure ingredients listed. Though I know and love the effectiveness of Fels Naptha, I must look for a suitable laundry soap that is less toxic. If you ever change the formula back to what it used to be, you will regain me as a customer. But until then, I can no longer use this product, and I will be retracting my endorsement of this product as well. Very disappointing!

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

This stuff saved a $145 Gitman Brothers shirt from red wine, mustard, and even chili stains. Just fill up the sink and work the shirt into a creamy lather. I won't use anything else now. Thanks, Fels!

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.

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.

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!

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!!!
