Best Stain Remover?

For years my mom has been using a bar of Fels Naptha to remove laundry stains. I’ve tried other products over the years, but I always end up back with this one. A lot of grocery stores carry it, for about a buck. And heaven knows with four kids under 8, we’ve got a lot of stains around here.

I just wet the bar and rub it onto the stain, and then use an old toothbrush to scrub. My mom found these plastic mesh bags, and gave me some. So now I tie the bar into a bag, and the bag acts as the scrubber.

I’ve been hearing about homemade laundry soap made with Fels Naptha. Or this one with Pink Zote and fabric softener. I’m going to have to try homemade soap one of these days.

    I tried the homemade laundry soap. It didn’t do much for grass stains or smelly husband odor, so I went back to Tide. My sister-in-law loves it though and she has 5 boys, 1 girl and a smelly husband. Not sure what I’m doing wrong. I’m a little on the lazy side though. I’m not much of a pre-treater.

    Does rarely folding clothes and instead just wearing them straight from the dryer classify as lazy too? If so, I’m with you. :)
