Works for Me - Fels Naptha Soap

My works for me tip is a wonder soap...it can do it all. Mrs. M. first introduced me to Fels-Naptha soap about six years ago and I can't imagine life without it. My husband is an automotive technician and we were forever getting grease spots in various places on our carpet....no matter how careful he was, even taking his shoes off there might me a fleck of grease on his sock. Believe me, those flecks of grease can grow and multiply quickly!

Mrs. M. assured me that if anything could get the grease out of my carpet, Fels-Naptha could. She had experienced the cleaning power of the soap when she tested it against baby food carrots on her beige carpet. I gave it a try and she was right, most of the spots disappeared and the ones that were left were so light they were hardly noticable.

I have used the soap to clean grass and dirt stains out of my basball playing son's pants, the pants look like new after two seasons of playing catcher. It has erased that awful orange diaper blowout. Fels-Naptha works on blood, grease, ketchup and chocolate. There are even people that say it works to stop the effects of poison ivy...we haven't had to test that yet fortunately!

With all its wonderful cleaning properties, you would think it would be a pricey item. It is actually very inexpensive...I can buy it for less than $1 at my local grocery store. The bar lasts quite awhile as well. Works for Me ---Fels-Naptha soap.

I love this stuff. My mom has been using the same bar for years, and I've had mine for what seems like forever. I've just found it hard to locate where I live. I have to get my best friend's mom to send it to me.

It is so easy to just wet the bar and rub it on the stains. Truly a magic bar!!

This sounds wonderful. I'm going to have to try to grab a bar next time I'm at Walmart! Thanks for the tip!

I must say that I've never heard of this soap. My mom would have loved it because ALL 3 brothers were mechanics and there was always a good bit of grease in their cloths/skin, etc.
