I was surprised to learn the Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar & Stain Remover has been around since 1894. I'd never heard of it!
So when I received one to review I asked my Mom if she had heard of it. Her immediate response was: "That's what we used to put on poison ivy."
I checked it out and sure enough, it's here on Wikipedia and I also found this blog entry. I know all too well the agony of a poison ivy outbreak, so you can bet I will keep this on hand! When I have a poison ivy rash, I'll do ANYTHING to make it go away. If I am unfortunate enough to get the opportunity to try out this home remedy, I will let you know how it goes.
In the meantime, I used it for its intended purpose as a stain remover:
"Purex Fels-Naptha is a laundry bar that works overtime to remove your toughest stains. Whether it is dirt, grease, or ring-around-the-collar, a bar of Purex Fels-Naptha can clean up the mess."
If you want to know more or get updates, you can "like" Purex brand on Facebook.
We found this blanket in a car we bought and it was too cute to trash, so I thought I'd try to get the stains (bottom right corner) out.
|I hate to throw stuff away if it's still useable.|
|To use the bar, you get the laundry wet and rub it on.|
|You can also shave some off and put it in your load of laundry.|
