This is great soap. I use it along with other ingredients to make homemade laundry detergent. I really like it and it smells great. Gets clothes super clean also.
Bought 14oz bar at walmarts for. 97 cents. Softer than fels naptha and has a pleasant fragrance. Wish I had heard of this product earlier.
Great Laundry Soap and Whitener
Zote is my favorite laundry bar soap along with Octagon. In my opinion, it works far better than Fels-Naptha, and it certainly smells better.If you are paying more than $4.00 a bar, however, you are paying too much. It is a little more difficult to find up north, but I have found it at outlet stores for around $1.00 for the large bar.The first thing you will notice is the smell. I have always used the pink bar and it smells great. It’s hard to describe, but just walking past my laundry area I can smell it and it’s just refreshing.There are several ways to use it. My mother just throws the whole bar in her wringer washer with the clothes during the wash cycle and removes it before she rinses. Obviously, you don’t want to do this in an automatic washer. I use an old cheese grater and grate it as finely as possible. Then I just add some to my wash cycle. You can also lather up a wet washcloth with a good amount of Zote and throw it in with your laundry. For stains, wet the fabric and rub the bar directly on the stain before washing.Zote is also one of the best whiteners you can find. I usually lather some on a wet washcloth and scrub my white sneakers that have become dingy. I then hand rinse and air dry them and they come out looking brand new.As an aside: I have several family members that are highly allergic to detergents and have NEVER had a bad reaction to ZOTE. I only mention this because many people are afraid to try bar laundry soaps due to their reputation for being harsh. Of course, test first if you have skin allergies, but I, myself, have always found Zote to be very mild.
Perfect For Making Your Own Laundry Soap
I no longer buy the expensive filler-filled laundry detergent at the grocery store. A simple recipe you can find on YouTube will make the best liquid or powder laundry soap using Zote. No complaints here!
I bought this soap to use with a recipe for laundry detergent on Pinterest. The soap itself has a strange (Maybe like pine?) smell but I don’t smell it once it’s mixed in with the other ingredients. My laundry is clean so I guess it is doing it’s job!
