Fels-Naptha. Which is this cute old-timey bar of soap that you probably totally walk by at the store.
I have removed motor grease, grass, unknown random stains on Reed's clothes and more.
Look at this old ad from the Ladies Home Journal...oh how things have changed.
I discovered it when I made the Duggars laundry detergent which I love by the way. I decided to try it to save money and I figured we didn't need all those chemicals on us anyway. Here is the recipe on a blog I found. I made the dry version where I shredded the soap and mixed all of the dry ingredients together.
This is what it looks like shredded.
For stains I put the soiled garments to soak in warm water with a bit of the detergent. I let it soak until the fels-naptha bits are soft. For tough stains I let it soak for a few hours. Then I take the bits of soap and wash the stained areas by scrubbing the fabric with itself. AND THE STAINS JUST COME OFF.
Amazing. I am the worst laundress so finding this soap that is so incredibly cheap was great.
I will at some point take more pictures of our house. However I refuse to put any messy photos on here. As soon as I have a moment to get things cleaned up, I will snap a few. The kitchen table Rudy stained is gorgeous!
Have a good one!
