This bar has much more cleaning power than my regular body soap bars, which makes it perfect for laundry and as a one-time wash to remove poison ivy oils. As it is stronger, it does well at getting clothes clean and awesome at spot-treating organic stains; especially those grease splatters from cooking.

  • Used for: stain stick for laundry, washing away poison ivy oils, removing body scent (hunters), removing carpet stains, regular laundry loads, cleaning area rugs (if you use on rugs, make sure you test in an inconspicuous spot first.
  • Can also be used to wash dishes
  • Scent: unscented
  • Weight: at least 4 oz. (113g)
  • Lasts: As a laundry stain stick only, it lasts about 6 months to a year or longer (again, depending on how often used).
  • NOTE! Depending on the tallow used, some bars yellow with age, so actual bar may differ in appearance from photo.  They are perfectly fine.  This is normal for some 100% lard bars.

Ingredient: Saponified Lard, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Sodium Citrate

My Laundry Detergent Recipe that I use in my HE washer:
3 shredded bars of my Laundry Bar
4 cups Borax
4 cups Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
8 cups Oxy powder (any brand, optional)
1/2 cups Baking Soda
This makes A LOT. It fits perfect in a large pretzel container from the club store. Measure 4 Tblsp for a full load of laundry. Your clothes will come out clean and chemical-free!

Mix a portion of the above recipe in warm water to dissolve and use as a carpet spot cleaner. Test in non-obvious place first, just to make sure it is safe for your carpet.
I have also used it on area rugs by taking them outside, soaking them with a hose, and rubbing them with a bar. After working in the soap and rinsing, I throw them over a fence to drip dry in the sun. Note: this may not be good for your particular carpet, so proceed at your own risk.
For stains, wet garment and rub into stain. Let sit for at least a few minutes, preferably overnight for really tough stains.

Due to this being a handmade item, if there are any swirls, they may differ from photo.  Also, each screen shows colors differently, so even though I take special care to photograph the item accurately, colors may differ a bit in real life.
