Fight Your Tough Stains With Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar! #PurexInsider #Giveaway #Sponsored

*This post was written by me on behalf of Purex as a Purex Insider.  I received a product sample to review.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    It’s always frustrating when I get stains on my favorite clothes because I’m very picky about my wardrobe and I like to keep all of my clothing in good condition.  There are many stain removers out on the market but I’m always leery of using them because I know that they can be harsh on clothes and often will end up doing more damage than good.  One stain remover that has always been trusted in my home is Purex Fels-Naptha laundry bar.

    As you all know, I’m a pretty busy lady so I love products that follow through on what they promise and are quick and easy to use.  I like Fels-Naptha exactly for that reason, that it is really easy to use on stained clothes.  All I have to do is wet the laundry bar and rub the stain with it.  After letting it sit for a couple of minutes I just throw the pre-treated item right into the wash and keep it moving.  It’s no wonder that America has trusted this powerful stain remover for over 100 years.

Getting ready to use Fels-Naptha to treat the stain on my red shirt!

    Some of the benefits of using Purex Fels-Naptha are that it can be used to pretreat dozens of stains and is safe to use on colors.  Since my boys are so active, I also love that it gets rid of dirt, grease and ring-around-the-collar which keeps all of their clothes nice and clean.  The best part about it is that it’s really easy to use and is tougher on stains than conventional stain removing sprays.

    Purex is currently holding a sweepstakes to celebrate 120 years of stain removing using Fels-Naptha.  One lucky winner will win the $500 grand prize and 119 second place winners will receive a coupon for a free bar of Purex® Fels-Naptha Laundry bar. That’s 120 winners for every year Fels-Naptha has been helping remove America’s toughest stains!

  1. BohemianBabushka says

    I make my own stain remover. Equal parts water, detergent, ammonia, and white distilled vinegar

  2. lazybones344 says

    I currently use Spray n’ Wash on my tough stains.

    Denise S.

  3. I love using this to make my own detergent. It gets my clothes so much cleaner.

  4. rebecca day says

    i normally use resolve stain remover

  5. I usually use a pre-treater spray. If it is a really tough stain, I rub detergent in to it, and scrub it and rinse with cold water before washing.

  6. Yesenia Torres says

    Usualmente Uso algún spray para las manchas. Pero necesito algo que realmente funcione

  7. I’m really bad about removing stains and usually don’t bother. It sounds like the Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry bar would make quick and easy work of it though.

  8. Les Johnson says

    I don’t treat stains on clothing. Usually they will wash out in the washing machine. But on really bad stains I use Shout.

  9. Austin Baroudi says

    We use bleach.

  10. Sometimes I can’t get the stains out and they just stay put.

  11. I use the liquid detergent I use to wash the clothes to pre treat the stains, and if the stains doesn’t go away I rewash the clothes. Thank you for the chance to win!

  12. Donna Cheatle says

    I usually pretreat tough stains by rubbing a little bit of my homemade laundry detergent into the stain. Fels Naptha and Borax are both ingredients in the homemade detergent, so it works great as a pretreater. Very few stains can stand up to these two products combined!

  13. The way I treat stains depends on what they are. Did you know saliva is the best way to get out blood stains?! It has to be your own; there’s something in it that breaks down the proteins in blood.

  14. Kelly Wentworth says

    To treat my newly stained clothing, I simply wet it immediately and rub it with detergent. This usually does the trick unless it’s a particularly difficult liquid, like wine on girl’s night 🙂 Sometimes I’ll also soak my clothes in a solution of water and soap. Sometimes baking soda for things like deodorant stains on white clothes. I’d love to try this bar!

  15. Daisy Tremorev says

    I usually put extra laundry soap on the stains to let it soak for a while and then run the wash. It doesn’t always work, but usually does ok.

  16. Jenna Wood says

    I pretreat with dish soap….

  17. I usually use a stain stick. I keep it in my bathroom so I can treat my clothes as soon as I take them off so the stains don’t set.

  18. rod (debbie) jackson says

    I use tide stain stick for food stains. I use hairspray for ink. I also use hydrogen peroxide for blood or protein stains.

  19. elizabeth elliott says

    I use a tide stick and then if it is really tough I soak it in oxyclean. Other than than if it is too bad I’ll take it to the drycleaners or throw it out. I don’t have time to mess with it.

  20. sarah oswald says

    it depend s on the type of stain but i try to use a stain stick as soon as i see the stain sooner the better. i also use oxygen additive to the water along with the laundry detergent.

  21. Right now I use Seventh Generation stain spray to put on clothing stains. But I am not sure it “Sticks” on the stains to help remove them as well as it should. I would love to give this bar a try on stains.

  22. For stains I soak the clothing overnight. Sometimes I will use a little peroxide on the stained area. I also use Oxi and Shout.

  23. Rhonda S. Phillips-Tenderholt says

    I use shout to get stains out and 1/2 the time stains don’t come out 🙁

  24. Dorothy Deakyne says

    I presoak whites sock and tee shits over night in 20 mule team borax before washing

  25. I am still lookijng for a good way to remove stains. I ahve to use super duper hypoallergenic laundry detergent because everyone in the house has sensitive skin. Unfortunately, hypoallergenic stuff doesn’t seem to remove stains very well. I just started using a new stain remover by resolve that mixes 2 liquids together. It seems to work well so far…but i have to run it through extra washes to make it safe for our skin. I know some folks who use this bar in their homemade laundry detergent and love it.

  26. I use shout on my stains

  27. Jennifer Matt says

    I use a stain stick and throw in some oxyclean into the washer. On some really bad stains I will presoak. It just depends, I haven’t had any really bad stains in awhile, which is shocking with 3 boys.

  28. lisa bouch says

    Pretreat with a spray or bleach if white and scrub with a toothbrush!ugh

  29. Dan Williams says

    pretreat and let it soak before wash

  30. I use some bleach to take out stains or sometimes at soak it for awhile in a hot water

  31. Angel Fisher says

    To remove stains from my 2 year olds tshirts I made a solution of peroxide, and water, I let it foam for a bit, and it works (sometimes, depends on the mess lol.) But I have been vying to try purex’s laundry bar & stain remover.

  32. I use some bleach to take out stains or sometimes at soak it for awhile in a hot water

  33. Desiree Dunbar says

    I soak them with hydrogen peroxide or bleach.

  34. I use whatever stain remover I have bought while grocery shopping. Usually something by Tide. I need a good homemade stain remover that won’t damage colored clothes.

  35. Mallory Bailey says

    I usually just soak the clothes before I throw them in the wash. I’ve tried other stain removers that end up doing more harm than good as well so I would love to try this product.

  36. I usually let them soak overnight or soak in some sort of solution. I would love to know some ways that actually takes out the stains without having to soak for so long

  37. natali alvarez jaimes says

    to remove tough stains recommend using baking soda dissolved in water, directly on the stain and let stand 5 minutes before washing normally.

    para quitar las manchas dificiles recomiendo usar bicarbonato de sodio disuelto en agua, directamente sobre la mancha y dejar reposar 5 minutos antes de lavar normalmente.

  38. Brenda Elsner says

    I usually use a pretreat on the stain and let it stand for 5-10 minutes then wash normally. Larger stains or stains that have been in for awhile,I will use baking soda and let it sit overnight before washing.

  39. Emmy Coffee says

    I guess it depends what it is. Sometimes I let them soak in a tub of water after I’ve rubbed some soap on it. Sometimes I just use the Shout spray before I throw it in the washer.

  40. Kimberly Deallovingrandma Stcl says

    Stain removers

  41. I try to get it under cold water and initially try removing the stain/spot with dishwashing liquid. If that doesn’t work I’ll use peroxide. Then I through it in the laundry and use the presoak setting.

  42. If it is a tough stain I usually run it under water and use a scrub brush with stain lifter- otherwise I just spray some stain lifter and throw in wash

  43. I currently use Spray N Wash for my laundry stains. I have to treat as soon as I see the stain.

    Lisa Garner

  44. Catherine Rose says

    I use just a regular bar of soap and scrub it out. And get it right into the wash.

  45. I usually try to make sure that I pretreat the stains. Sometimes I just put a little spray and wash on it as I throwing it in the washer.

  46. Laurie Emerson says

    I usually Shout on the toughest stains. I gently rub it in and then I like to put it in cold water to soak for a little while. I then scrub a little harder and if it looks like the stain is almost gone then I put it in the washer.
