Fels Naptha for Allergic Reactions: WFMW

I don't enjoy weeding. Who does? One reason I especially loathe the chore is that when I spend time weeding my garden, my forearms break out in an itchy rash. In previous years I'd ignore it and within a few hours the rash would go away. It wasn't anything serious, just a mild allergic reaction to something in the garden.

This year, I purchased a couple of bars of Fels Naptha soap to try to make my own homemade laundry soap. An on-line search informed me that Fels Naptha is good for so much more than just laundry soap. One thing it is known for is poison ivy relief. So earlier this summer when my daughter was weeding and pulled some poison ivy, I sent her inside to wash immediately with Fels Naptha. She never had a reaction. Another night, all of my kids were helping me lay mulch and we were all an irritated mess by the end. A washcloth with Fels Naptha did the trick and no one had any irritation, despite the fact that I'm positive we exposed to poison ivy while we worked.

Having seen such good results, the next time my arms were itching, spotted, and beginning to swell I reached for the closest bar of Fels Naptha and experienced instantaneous relief. Within 30 seconds, the rash and swelling had disappeared as if I had washed them down the drain with the soap suds. It was amazing! Now every time I work in the garden, I wash with Fels Naptha afterwards. I have extremely sensitive skin, and have never had an adverse reaction to using it, even when I've washed from head to toe including my face. Every time the itchiness and rash miraculously wash down the drain. I never cease to be amazed!

As I read through the list of other marvelous things for which Fels Naptha is useful, I can almost hear the traveling salesman lauding its miraculous benefits. I can't speak to its uses in the garden or in cleaning paint brushes, but considering how well it has worked when I have used it, I don't doubt the validity of its claims. Now if only it claimed to cause massive amounts of weight loss...

Fels Naptha is available on-line, or in the laundry soap aisle of your local grocery store. (I found mine at the local Kroger store.) Now can anyone tell me where to find a cup of chewing tobacco juice so that I can mix up a batch of bug spray for my garden?

Fels Naptha soap certainly works for me! For more Works for me Wednesday post, visit Rocks in My Dryer.

Grace and Peace,

That's amazing! I love fels-naptha for the laundry soap and just as a stain remover. My kids seem to get a hive type rash every time we go to the beach here...I wonder if this would work for that? I'll have to try it! Thanks for the tip.

My mom loves that stuff! I've used it a few times. I just always forget to grab it.

Emily said...

I would have never thought of that. In fact, I wonder how YOU thought of that. :)
(oh, and I love the Jeannie Fulbright books now...I'm reformed)

Daisy said...

ooh- good tip! I am extremely allergic to poison ivy, so this would be wonderful to have on hand.

Debbie said...

I have never heard of that before. I wonder if it would help the irritation I get from being out in the sun while at the beach. I have some kind of bumpy rash thing that the dermatologist said I can't do much to prevent but I need relief from the itching. I need to check this out!

amada said...

wow. I wanted to buy some Fels Naptha when I was back in the states this spring, but I forgot about it. I too had looked into making my own laundry soap and it was on my list... but now I know that it is good for so much more! I'll totally have to have my mom bring some down.

When I read your comment over at my blog, my first thought was, "YAY!" and then, "AAAWWWW, that is so sweet of you!" I'm trying out this online fundraising :) heheheh.

Anyway, Thank you, you are so sweet. :)

When are you going to tell us what you did about Katie?

tobacco juice is made from steeping the chewing tobacco in water, the recipe is in my book at home. cant remember the authors name he was on opb. and it's called "Grandma Putt's old time gardening wisdom." it has tons of homemade stuff for the home & garden. you can probably look it up on the internet.

I made laundry soap with fels naptha (1 bar, grated), 1 cup of washing soda, and 1 cup of borax....half the price of store bought, and I feel like my clothes are cleaner, and it's just a healthier choice for the environment! No more plastic bottles.
