    Went to WalMart, Krogers, Dollar stores, Cubs and Walgreens and found NO Naptha soap! [​IMG] I need more for my homemade soap detergent! [​IMG] AND SOON!!!!!!!!

    Whats going on with the shortage????????? All the stores said that they were out of them and would not restock on them!

    Now I have to find a nice replacement!

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    My Kroger pulled it from the shelves last week and I'm still waiting on a call from them to see if it's a warehouse problem or not enough demand. I am OUT and I'm panicked as well. I am NOT buying that stuff online.

    Quote:Maybe a good idea because just about every store I have in this town are out of them.

    Seems like folks are really pinching pennies.

    Now I gotta find the manufactors and see whats going on or anyone else know or have the same problem?

    Here is the recipe I use.

    2 cups borax
    2 cups soda wash
    1 bar fels naptha soap (grated)
    1 cup color safe purex bleach

    Mix in a container and I use about 1 teaspoon per load. 2 if the load is a big one. [​IMG]

    Seriously, just a teaspoon?? It must be super concentrated. I would love to try the recipe. Our hardware store in town has it the fels naptha soap...go figure [​IMG]

    my local Meijer store has been out since the beginning of summer, when i bought the last of it!

    my local Kroger has plenty.

    i use 2 teaspoons per load. it works like a charm!
