The Best Stain Remover for Clothes
We recently talked about making your own Laundry soap and how great this specific laundry soap actually works. This week I want to talk about why it works so well.
It is that special soap bar called Fels-Naptha. Have you heard of it?
This special soap is a GEM and in fact, we keep a bar on a plate in our laundry room to stain treat our clothes. It is by far the BEST stain remover we have found.
Above is a picture of my son’s sweatshirt – (his favorite one actually) but he stained it with mud while playing backyard football. We tried oxi-clean and it didn’t come out.
What is the best stain remover for clothes?
We tried Shout and it still didn’t come out. Finally I tried the fels-naptha bar and it came out immediately.
This is truly the best stain remover!
This is a miracle worker for stains. If you have kids you must try this! It is amazing how well it works and how cheap it is.
How do you get a stain out fast?
I got the bar slightly wet and rubbed it on the stain. After that, I then grabbed a sponge to rub it in.
As you can see in the picture the stain is gone. This picture was taken BEFORE the sweatshirt was washed just so you can see how fast it actually works.
This stuff is amazing! You will love it too.
So you are probably wondering where you can get the Best stain remover…
Fels-Naptha bar is found in almost any store and even on Amazon. I have bought it at Crest (locally) and also bought fels naptha soap walmart as well.
Similarly , you will also find it in the Laundry detergent aisle, so it isn’t hard to find. It is cheap too!
This also is the best stain remover for set in stains!
Did your kids throw something in the hamper and not tell you about a stain and now it is set? That happens here all the time.
How do you remove old stains from clothes?
Well, Fels-Naptha to the rescue. Even set in stains will be a thing of the past with this amazing little bar of soap!
Are you looking for the best laundry stain remover for grease?
Yes, you guessed it! Fels-Naptha once again. It also gets rid of grease.
How to get stains out of white baseball pants?
You can use Fels-Naptha for this too. Your kids white baseball pants will so new and clean.
I love that I can use one simple and expensive bar of soap to get rid of so many different types of stains.
It is the best soap for baseball pants!
If you have kids in sports, this is the soap to keep on hand. It is inexpensive and gets the job done.
Use this soap for the best stain remover for blood.
The list goes on and this soap is just amazing. It even easily removes blood from clothes.
I told it was a miracle worker!
This is the best stain remover for white clothes but how long does it last?
If you are wondering how long this will last you, we have 8 kids with lots of stains. However, we have been using one bar of Fels-Naptha for 4 months.
Therefore, it really lasts a long time. As you can see… it is good for lots of uses. We have barely put in a dent! 😉
This is just the best for set in stains and works great. I believe it is the one of the best stain removers on the market for treating stains.
Normally it will get out all types of stain. If you have a really stubborn and stained item, you can try pre soaking in the washing machine with this spot remover.
I keep this in my laundry room and use it as my favorite laundry stain remover. It works better than shout advanced or anything I have ever tried to remove stains including red wine and blood based stains.
Remember to use cold water temperatures. In conclusion, this is an amazing stain remover and you are going to love using it.

I actually used it on my carpet the other day and got a stain out of my carpet very easily. This simple bar soap will probably be your next favorite thing!

Saw this via Pinterest and just had to jump over and tell you that we also LOVE Fels-naptha. It’s gotten out all sorts of stains for us. (In fact, I also blogged about it in my 10 Ways to Save When Doing Laundry post!) 🙂
I just want to second what you said- it’s incredibly effective, easy to use and well, crazy inexpensive too. I never thought of using it on the carpet- thanks for that suggestion! Will have to remember it.
I keep mine in a little plastic tub in my laundry room and use an old recycled toothbrush to scrub it in….lightly, of course. I have also used Zote with the same results.
When my son played little league, another mom told me I had to get this soap. In Florida the ball fields are that red clay. Fels Naptha was the only thing that got those red stains out of white baseball pants. Every time!
I can’t wait to use it during baseball season. 😉
I’m adding this to my grocery list! I need new stain remover, and for the bargain price for $1, I’ll try this before going back to one of the sprays!
You will love this MUCH better than the sprays – trust me… I used to love my sprays.
I bet you could grate it and add water to make the spray version…the same way you make body wash of a bar of soap.
Thanks for the tip!! Adding this to our shopping list right now.
My daughter spilled a quart of red Crystal Light on our cream-colored rug and after working on it for a while with Fels Naptha, you can’t even see a stain!
I have used this soap to make homemade laundry detergent but never thought to use it as a stain remover. Thanks so much for the suggestion!
Has anyone tried this on other types of stains? I was eating shrimp scampi and some of the oil from it ruined my shirt. I actually have many sweatshirts with some sort of food set-in stain. Anyone else have luck with these types of stains?
For stains, I keep some shredded fels naptha in a small jar in my laundry room (I hold some back when I make my laundry soap). Then I just wet a tooth brush and dip it in the fels naptha shreds. It makes it much easier and quicker to work into the fabric.
I can’t find a list of the products for the free affair of the heart ticket.
We don’t eat yogurt so I need to know of other products.
It’s funny you should post about fels naptha! My parents have used it since I was little as a stain remover and it has always been their favorite! 🙂
Does this work with set in stains as well (as in clothes that have already been through the wash and are still stained)? I also tend to attract grease stains. Does it work on those?
My daughter got motor oil on a pink ski jacket. After washing and drying it the stain was still there. I scrubbed Fels Naptha into out and let it sit for awhile. After running it through another wash cycle the stain was completely gone! It truly is the best stain remove inv ever used!
Thanks Carrie for all this information. I made the laundry detergent you shared and it works great in my front load HE washer. I just put the powder in the tub. And I had read about using the fels naphtha bar for stain remover before I made the detergent. I saved the last little bit of soap (you know, the small piece that is hard to shred) for stain removal. I have used it on my Grandson’s clothes and has removed all the stains.
I leave a bar in my laundry room and grate it in my laundry detergent as a boost to make sure my clothes stay stain free.
What cycle and temp. Was water when you washed clothes with this stain remover?
Do you have a formula for this in a liquid detergent? The manual for my front load HE washer says to not use powdered detergent. Thanks.
I have been making my own laundry soap for around a year. It is great. I will put the oxiclean in it the next time i use it. I do the dry soap. I know you can make it liquid as well.
I know this sounds crazy, but I use this as body wash every summer. Ever since I was younger I would get poison ivy, oak, and sumac like crazy. It never fails. Last year it got so bad that I was put on steroids and I’m a Type 1 diabetic so I was miserable due to the side effects of the medicine. Anyway, my great grandma told me to wash with this in the shower and it completely dried it out. It was wonderful! I’ve already had poison ivy so far this spring and I’ve been washin with this as body soap for two weeks and it’s gone. I only washed for the extra week to make sure it was totally gone.
Maranda, that’s not crazy at all. My daughter had bad poison ivy too and my mother in law told me to try this and it worked like a charm! While at the salon an older lady said she has used it for shampoo most of her life without any signs of drying it out. Amazing stuff!!!
I have a wool sweater from Ireland that needs to be dry cleaned. Do you think this soap would work on wool?
Dry clean means no water. You’ll shrink your sweater no matter what type of soap you use.
I’ve use this soap for year it’s great.
My mom had used this soap for many, many years!! We grew up hearing her say “get the yellow soap” whenever there was a stain on anything !! And yes it works wonders..!!!
grandmother used it always
have it on hand with an old toothbrush for scrubbing
Grew up with my Mom and Grandma who always had a bar in the laundry room for stains. Most stains will come out with fels naphtha. Some will require working soap into stain. For baseball pants, usually wet stains, rub soap in, then leave to sit a bit or longer before washing. Works well on most anything. For really stubborn stains that don’t come out the first time, usually hang up wet out of washer (forego drying), apply more fels naphtha and add a squirt of green Palmolive dish soap. I got blood out of a new white bath towel that I was convinced I would have to throw out. Came completely out. Works well on baby stains (spit up, formula, food and other unmentionable stains.)
I looked all over in the store for this. Finally asked clerk…they kept it in the body soap aisle even tho it says rite on the pkg that it is laundry soap. Go figure.
Is this good for sensitive skin and baby items?
I can hardly wait to try this product.
I can’t wait to try it my husband is Good at not watching out for stains.
I read this post on Pinterest several months ago. I saw a bar on the laundry aisle a couple of days ago and decided to buy it. Last night my son got a huge rust colored stain on a new white shirt. I wet the shirt and rubbed the bar on the spot. After soaking the shirt in water for a few minutes, the stain was gone!
I will no longer be needing my old spray cleaner.
Been using this for years. Gave my daughter a bar several months ago . Always my go to stain killer for stubborn stains.Works great
If you are exposed to poison ivy, wash area or take shower with Fels naptha to remove its oil from your skin. I got this advice from a doctor 30 years ago and it always works.
In the 60 I remember my grandmother had it in the laundry
Room It sure broght back old
I’ve used this since the early 90’s when my friend gave me a small piece to try. My brother was on the HS baseball team and my mom was unable able to get the dirt and grass stains out of his uniform. So, he finally asked me try and I used the piece she gave me and the stains came out. I currently have 3 until opened bars and one I’m currently using. Seems Seems to Seems to be ardent to find but it works wonders.
Wish me luck I’m about to try this on my daughters cheer uniform. I don’t know what else to use
