    Default Fels Naptha - What is it, where to buy it

    Hi Everyone,
    Does anyone know what is in Fels Naptha? I have always used a ph
    balanced, environmentally correct laundry detergent and now have used
    the powdered version of the laundry recipe and seem to like it, but
    wondered if any of the ingredients are harsh at all? There are no
    ingredients on the label of Fels Naptha that I understand - like
    cleaning agents ... what are they?
    I know from past experience that many brands on the shelves today
    have fillers in them which cause the skin to be irritated. Any input
    would be appreciated. And I really don't want any products that may
    be caustic.

    Thanks and enjoy the posts!

    I don't know what is in Fels Naphtha, but have made my own laundry soap
    for the first time a month ago and have been watching very carefully to
    see if my son has any skin problems as he is very sensitive to additives
    in soaps and detergent. He has had no irritation at all. Hope that info
    helps.

    I am not completely sure what the ingredients are but I can say that I did
    try it but was very careful when I did. My hubby has sensitive skin to
    perfumes and certain soaps so I was very concerned that he would have
    problems with the laundry soap. He has had no problems with the soap and I
    made sure to let him wear the clothes before I told him that way he couldn't
    try to say that he did have problems with it. I don't believe that it is
    caustic but I can say that it does very well at getting urine smell out of
    clothes so it does work very good.

    I still haven't found it in any of my local stores - probably my town
    is too small. However, at Walmart I did find Zote. Will that work?
    I think I'm going to have to buy the washing soda online. I just
    hate to do that b/c I think it makes the price go up.

    Thanks,

    Aine~ have you tried requesting it from your local grocer? many times they will
    get something like that in if they know there is a need?

    I just found Fels Naptha at our Dollar General. Give them a try if you have
    one close.

    I understand that Zote will work very well. They don't sell that in Michigan.
    Octagon has also been used by some of the folks on here.

    Dear Aine,
    http://www.kidrontc.com has both fels naptha for $1.99 a bar. Not as
    cheap as a grocery store, but way cheaper than Lehman's Non-electric store
    online.

    God's blessings,
