Fels-Naphta the Cheapest Cleaning Product
Fels-Naptha is one of the best and cheapest cleaning product out there. You can find it in grocery stores and hardware stores in the laundry aisle for about a dollar a bar. The reason I love Fels-Naptha is because it is a versatile cleaning product that I find myself using for many different things around the house. I always make sure to stock up on it when I go to the store so that I don’t run out.
Here are 10 uses for Fels-Naptha:
1.It is an important ingredient in most homemade laundry detergents.
2.You can use it with a sponge or scrub brush to clean your tub, sink, tiles, countertops and even grout.
3. It’s known to be a great remedy to dry out poison ivy and even cold sores on the skin.
4. Fels-Naptha is an ingredient in many homemade insect repellents and even deer repellent!
5. Remove heavy grease and grime from hands. (Only when absolutely necessary because it can irritate skin.)
6. It takes grass stains out and removes other tough stains like wine, blood, chocolate and ink from clothing.
7. Wet your Fels-Naptha bar with warm water and rub it onto oil/grease stains on clothing. Let it sit for 30 minutes or so before washing out. It works great.
8. Grate a tiny bit into the washer with your baby clothes and regular detergent to remove stubborn baby formula stains and brighten whites.
9. Even though it wasn’t intended for dishes, some people dissolve 1 part Fels-Naptha in 2 parts of hot water to make dish soap and they swear by it!
10. Fill a bucket with hot water and use a hard scrub brush and Fels Naptha to remove grease stains from your driveway.
How do you use Fels-Naptha? If you have never used it before, you should definitely buy some and try some of my 10 uses for Fels-Naptha. It is an inexpensive and very effective cleaning tool to have in your home.

I have been using Fels Naptha since 1972 after my mother-in-law introduced it to me! I wouldn’t be without it! Even if the stain has been dried in by the dryer this soap usually can get the stain out! I use it on shoes, flip flops, outdoor cushion stains….my daughter uses it & my granddaughter uses it!

I have raised three kids, helped with several others and I am crazy about keeping clothes and shoes clean. Why was I never told about this??? Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I will be treating myself to a bar Fels Naphtha…It’s the little things that make one happy. : ) Thank you!!

I will have to try this out on my son’s sports uniforms. He’s got some blood from sliding to the bases.

I’ve learned about so many things from your posts but this is so eye-opening! I’ll have to look for this the next time I go shopping.

Love that you can use it to remove grease stains from the driveway. Much needed right now!

I had forgotten about Fels Naptha! I learned to use it from my grandmother. One great use is to wash the hands after cutting hot peppers. Just as with poison ivy, it is the oils that must be washed away. This is going on my shopping list.
August 10, 2016 @ 12:55 pm
This is so helpful because I’m always cleaning/washing seeing how we have 5 members in our household.
August 16, 2016 @ 5:12 pm
I used this to clean my tub and it was spotless!
August 18, 2016 @ 12:39 am
Love your cleaning tips. Next on my list is removing the grease stains on my driveway.
August 18, 2016 @ 12:40 am
I use this on many parts of my cleaning jobs at home and it’s amazing what it does!
August 18, 2016 @ 12:53 am
Love all the stuff you can do with this.
August 19, 2016 @ 11:07 pm
Off to do laundry and will be using your tips.
August 19, 2016 @ 11:58 pm
I’m going to follow the tip of making dish soap with it and see if it works for me.
August 21, 2016 @ 11:10 pm
Love everything it can do for such a great price!
August 23, 2016 @ 12:42 pm
Checked out the Cleaning Household Checklist as well and it was indeed helpful.
August 23, 2016 @ 7:09 pm
I will most definitely be using this on my baby’s clothing in the washer. You know how they get those stubborn stains from food.
August 24, 2016 @ 5:32 pm
It is indeed very inexpensive and effective.
August 24, 2016 @ 5:43 pm
My child will be starting softball and football this year for the first time and I think I’ll be using this quite a bit.

I’ve used this for a variety of things for a very long time because my mom used it when I lived at home.

Recommended this to several friends. Cleans so well.
August 28, 2016 @ 2:12 am
I have heard of this before but have never tried it. Seems like it has been around for a very long time. Thinking it must be very effective.
August 29, 2016 @ 11:40 am
Cheap AND effective. What more could one ask for?! This has been around for so long. It must be a great product. I want to try it out now!
August 29, 2016 @ 3:10 pm
We had a ton of laundry to do this weekend and this took care of all the stains! Amazed the hubby how economic and effective it was.
August 29, 2016 @ 3:41 pm
People always want fancy smells but those products really don’t remove stains like this one.
August 29, 2016 @ 5:52 pm
I’ve used it in my homemade laundry detergent for years. It’s wonderful!
August 29, 2016 @ 6:27 pm
My mom taught me a long time ago about Fels Naptha. It’s so handy and so cheap.
August 28, 2019 @ 1:31 am
It does a great job getting dirt stains out of soccer socks and dirty uniforms.
