Tightwad Tuesday!

I’m trying to get back into a routine. So, here’s an installment of Tightwad Tuesday for you!

This one is easy.

For a long time, I’ve been reading about this product called Fels Naptha.
It’s a bar laundry soap. Sounds weird right? I’d never seen it in the store but I stumbled up on it one day at Ingles. A bar was a whooping $1.27 so I thought I’d give it a whirl.

This stuff is amazing! You rub the bar straight on a stained piece of clothing and then throw it in the wash. It’s pulled all kinds of stains out of my table cloth, the boys clothes and Hunter’s clothes. I could write a book on stain removers that don’t work. But so far, the Fels Naptha bar has removed spaghetti sauce and Georgia red clay like you wouldn’t believe. And it’s cheap!! That’s the best part. It also has a very light and, to me, refreshing smell. It reminds me of an old-timey soap.

I know that a lot of people who make their own laundry soap use Fels Naptha. I haven’t tried to make my own launstry soap yet but I keep planning to. Just because I can!

It took me a while to find Fels Naptha in a store. My Walmart doesn’t carry it. Like I said, I stumbled up on it at Ingles. You can find it at a site called http://www.soapsbegone.com/. When I googled it, it also says that you can buy it on Amazon.

Tightwad Tuesday, just for you!

  1. Well thanks for the tip. I've been hearing lots about this stuff. Since my husband does our grocery shopping, I'm not sure if our stores carry this, but I will check. Nice to see you back here!

  2. Oh cool! I've always read about this stuff, and when I cloth diapered I made my own soap but used Ivory bar soap in place of this. We don't have Ingles around here, but I've never seen it in our stores. I'll have to look into it. No stains come out of our clothes… it got out the red clay?? Really?? 🙂

  3. Have you ever made your own laundry detergent. It uses Fels-Naptha, borax and arm and hammer washing SODA. look it up online you can make a 5 galon bucket of the stuff for pennies!!! Now that is tightwad gold.
