I used the Fels-Naptha laundry bar today to see how well it worked as a stain remover. I have a mint green knit shirt that somehow has a grease stain on the front. It was probably most noticeable to me, but it bothered me. I had previously washed and dried it, so the stain was set in. As a last resort, I tried the Fels-Naptha laundry bar. As the directions state, I wet the stain area (which made it difficult to find the grease spots…) and rubbed the area with the laundry bar. I continued to sort the laundry, and washed. Realistically, it was several hours later when I got to the light-colored load. And when I sorted the laundry to put it away today, the stain was gone. I was quite surprised, and looked at the shirt in the bright light to make sure it was not just the poorly lit closet that made it appear to be gone.
So, I am quite sold on the Fels-Naptha laundry bar. It was quite easy to use and the time between pretreating and washing did not appear to impede the stain removing capabilities.
