    You might be able to find it at a hardware store that sells the Felsnaptha soap and what are you using it for? My mom used it in the rinse water for her white clothes, (wringer with doublet tubs) and it only takes a dab. Makes the whites look whiter because of the "blue" tint I guess . . .they didn't LOOK blue, its something with the eyes I guess.

    I can get it at the grocery store, in the laundry soap aisle. I believe the brand is "Mrs. Smith". You need to be careful using it. It will stain if used too strongly.

    Imp knows from experience

    Probably online... I've hit several grocery stores and other retail places and NO ONE has it here.
