My Fels-Naptha Story

This post may contain affiliate links, please see our disclosure policy for details.

This morning while shopping at Giant, I decided to get the ingredients to make homemade laundry soap, as I’m planning to try making it for the first time this week. I found the Fels-Naptha bar soap and saw it was marked $0.99 a bar.

Fast forward to checkout and the soap rang up $1.29, since the lines were long I decided to let it go and head to customer service after I paid for my purchases. The lady at the service desk went and double checked the price and yes it was $0.99.

The store policy is when an item rings up for the wrong price you get it free and if you purchased more than 1 of those items they reimburse the difference for the remaining items. I ended up getting $1.59 reimbursed to me, so I only paid $0.99 for 2 bars of soap!

The moral of the story is watch your items as you are checking out, you might be surprised how many times they do not ring up correctly and you end up overpaying.

Stay tuned for the laundry soap recipe later this week.

    In some ways it is nice when things ring incorrectly at Giant. Only problem is, it often takes forever for them to check the price etc.

    I’m anxious to see what you think of the homemade detergent. I had used it for a long time but finally stopped because it seemed like over time my clothes started looking dingy. BUT we have incredibly hard water and I wonder how much that had to do with it.

    I LOVE Fels-naptha soap and didn’t realize that Giant carried it. Good to know! It makes a great stain remover. Just rub it on the stain and scrub a bit. If you don’t have hard water you might not even need to scrub. I use it to get grass stain out of my very active 3 yr. old’s pants- it’s the BEST.

      Thanks for the info on the Fel-naptha soap. All these ingredients are new to me and I have never used them. I’m wondering if I could get stains out of my husbands work jeans with the fels-naptha bar.

      I know hard water makes for dingy clothes, as my parents had hard water and over time things started looking dingy. Where we live now or water isn’t hard but neither is it soft. They said it is right between the two?! I’m anxious to see what I think of the soap too. I would love to see how our recipes compare as well.

    I was at Walmart today looking for borax and I noticed they now also carry fels napha and its .97 I thought I might share this info and safe some people a few more cents per bar.
