WHERE TO FIND - LAUNDRY DETERGENT INGREDIENTS

Fels-Naptha® Laundry Soap Bar:

Made by the Dial Soap Company, so any store that carries Dial should be able to get it for you. If they carry it, it will be found in the bar soap or laundry soap aisle at your regular supermarket. It is usually on the bottom shelf. If you can't find it in your area, try Ivory Soap instead.

Super Washing Soda:

Washing Soda can be found on the laundry detergent aisle of your supermarket. It comes in a 55-ounce yellow box. Baking soda SHOULD NOT be used in place of washing soda. They are completely different products, although they are both made by Arm & Hammer.

Borax:

One brand name is 20 Mule Team® Borax. It is also found on the laundry detergent aisle.

Reminder: All of the above are now available online at SoapsGoneBuy.com!
