Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar: Review and Giveaway! 
The Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar is a laundry bar and stain remover that has been on the market for over one hundred years (that should be telling enough, for any product to stand the test of time!). The Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar is specially formulated to remove deodorant stains, grease stains, oily stains, and ring around the collar. It is made to fight the toughest of your stains!

The Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar comes in one 5.5 oz package. It contains the following ingredients: Soap (sodium tallowate, sodium cocoate or sodium palmate kernelate and sodium palmate), water, talc, dipentene, coconut acid, palm acid, tallow acid, Peg-6 methyl ether, glycerin, sodium chloride, pentasodium pentetate and/or tetrasodium etidronate, titanium dioxide, triclocarban, fragrance, acid orange 24, acid yellow 73.

How do you use the Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar? It's easy! Follow these directions:

To PRE-TREAT your stains:

1) Wet stain and then rub with bar
2) Wait one minute and wash your laundry as normal


1) Grate 1/16th into washer with your normal detergent
2) Wash clothes as normal.

For severe soil stains, you can use a soft brush to work the Fels-Naptha in to the stain before putting the garment in your washer. I have heard that Fels-Naptha is also great to use as an insect repellant (grate some soap off and mix with water), and also to help wash your dishes!

 The Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar can be purchased at many major retailers, including: Hannaford, Shaw's, Walmart, Market Basket, Price Chopper, Tops, etc. You can also purchase it online through the Purex website, which will direct you to Amazon,,, Rakuten, or ACE.

As part of a Purex Insiders promotion, I received one Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar for review, so that I could share my opinions with you. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I did not spill anything or accumulate any stains on any of my or my boyfriend's clothing since I received the laundry bar to review. I am probably jinxing myself. However, I did rub the bar over a shirt that has a tendency to show sweat stains a lot, which must mean that it is gathering a lot of sweat and could eventually lead to a stain. I decided to be proactive and stop the stain before it started. The laundry bar seemed to remove any remnants of the deodorant and the sweat. I will have to check back with you when I get an ACTUAL stain on my clothing. I was thinking of taking a slightly older shirt and staining it myself for the purpose of this review, but since I moved I realized I did not bring a ton of old clothes with me, and I didn't have any that I wanted to try staining on purpose. I do not doubt the Fels-Naptha's ability to remove stains, but I figured an oil or perspiration stain is different than a wine or mustard stain. I did, however, try using my Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar as a Laundry Booster, since it is such a versatile product. I put it in with a bunch of clothes that weren't necessarily stained, but that were slightly dingy or were athletic clothes that really needed a boost. The Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar worked great for this aspect! 

What I can say is that I am glad Purex Insiders introduced me to this product. Generally I do accidentally stain things at least once a month, whether it be from food or just my carelessness. I typically just go ahead and throw my clothes in the wash as soon as I can, but it would really help to have the Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar around to take a second hit at the stain before I put it in the laundry. I was excited because I actually hadn't heard of the Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar previously, even though it has been around for so long! My mom told me that it has been around a long time, and that she has always heard good things about it, and has even used one in the past. The Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar smells great, and I know that one bar will last you a long time. Although price varies by location, the Laundry Bar is very affordable and is great to have around for those emergency occasions! This would be a great product for mothers of young children or puppies who are very accustomed to frequent stains.

  17. You are doing a review of the product without even testing it on an actual stain???? wow!

  18. here is a great tip- if you are going to take the time to do a product review, why dont you DO THE REVIEW instead of explaining in great detail irrelevant information. No offence but I came to your site in hopes of getting a product review, I dont care how you did not spill anything on your clothing or your boyfriends clothing at the time of the review, nor do I care to hear about what you WAS going to do for a test (you go into elaborate detail on how you was going to do a test on old clothing but you moved and did not take all your old clothes).

    So you go through the trouble of writing this review up and take photos and publish your review, etc. even though you never even taken 5 minutes to test the product on a real stain. Heck, test them on SOME sort of material, even if it is a paper towel, or the inside lace on your underwear, the point is to test it on SOMETHING if you are going to take the time to do a product review on the item. In conclusion you say you think it is good because it appears to clean non-stained clothes you tested it on. Well that sounds just great, I would like my unstained clothes to remain unstained as well, so I better get me some of this stuff fast.

    Sorry for being so negative, its just very frustrating when people give “product reviews” for items without even doing a single test, or comparing it to single product. I mean it is fine if you want to be proactive with your non stained clothing and use this product on it, but that doesn’t mean you should go and write a review of the product afterwards. Again not trying to be mean, I just don’t understand how someone can do a product review on a stain cleaning product without even testing it on a single stain.

    1. I'm sorry you feel that way -- if you look at any other one of my reviews I absolutely use the products. This was a rare case because the company wanted me to introduce the product to my readers within a specific time frame and within that time frame I didn't /have/ any large stains to test on. Rather than purposely staining something for the purpose of the review I did the best I could to represent the product. I still wanted to offer the giveaway to my readers and to let them know about this product. Perhaps I should have titled it differently so as not to offend people.

  19. I am sorry I feel that way too, perhaps a better title would be good because technically this was not a product review at all.

    I was looking for a review because amazon subscribe and save has them on sale for $1 shipped.

    I get a special discount and I can get them for $0.93 shipped so thats why I was looking for a good review.

    But because your mother said she heard of it and heard good things about it I decided I will try a few of them so I ordered 5 of them.
