Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar and stain remover Review and Giveaway 12/9 US

As a mom of 2 girls (2 and 5 years old), I always look for ways to make laundry time shorter, easier and of course cheaper. I've tried lots of stain removers, both bleach and the ones safe for colored clothes, because it's a must in our home. The one I use on their clothes now is a bit pricey (but effective) and I am always open to try new ones specially cheaper ones. :)

 My 2 daughters' clothes always seem to get dirty at the end of the day and not to mention they change their clothes about 3 to 4 times a day (so imagine how many loads of laundry I do in a week with just their clothes).

I tried the Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar for a change. I was so used to seeing laundry boosters and stain removers in liquid or powder form that I was excited to try the Purex Fels-Naptha which is in bar form. I read the instructions and yes it has to be grated (I'm not joking.).


I didn't have a spare cheese grater so I used the one we have at home. (Look it's the same color as the wrapper of the Purex Fels-Naptha!) :)


No this isn't cheese. LOL. It's the grated Purex Fels Naptha Laundry Bar. :) It was easy to grate and only a small amount was needed for each load (1/16 of the bar). Yes I mentally calculated how much 1/16th would be. :)

See I told you it was easy to grate. :)


Here is my daughter's footsies. She loves this footsies and she wears it everytime I've washed it. As you can see, there are crayon and chocolate stains on it.



Here are the after pictures of her favorite footsies. :) See the crayon and the chocolate stains are gone!

So my thoughts are:

- I like that it is in bar form but I am hoping to find it in liquid or powder form or grated form. :)
- Based on my experience, Purex Fels-Naptha is effective against everyday stains like chocolate, crayons and some other stains on my daughters' clothes but it cannot remove stains that has been on my daughters' clothes for a few days already.
- I really like the smell of the Purex Fels-Naptha bar. It is strong if you smell the bar itself but when I got the clothes, they have a subtle fresh scent.
- I love the cheaper price! Yes for me, nothing can beat cheaper products that work. :)

Now onto the giveaway! Yay!! :) I am giving away a coupon for a Free Purex Fels-Naptha laundry bar so you can try it too! There will be 3 winners so what are you waiting for?! :) Good luck everyone! :)

  13. No, but I've tried it in a sample of diy laundry soap that was given to me. I'd love to try it as a stain stick.

  14. I've been using it for years. I use it as a stain lifter, to clean carpets, in the laundry, in homemade laundry soap, etc. It's awesome. You mentioned that you'd like to try it in powder form, here's how. Cut the bar into 8 equal pieces, place on a microwave safe plate. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until pieces are puffed up to almost 3 times their size. Let cool. Place in blender or food processor (I use my magic bullet) It will chop it down to powder in no time. Each bar makes a little more than a cup of powder! I do it that way all the time!
