I restore antique Zenith and Philco table top radios, and was told by a friend from Portugal to try something called “blue bar soap”, which is not easily available here. I figured the North American equivalent would be Fels Naptha, and to my delight, with a little “elbow grease”- a damp cloth- and a wee bit ‘o pasty soap, the aluminum chassis on my radio shone like the day it departed the Zenith factory in Chicago in 1963. Use caution to not get near any components, and use common sense (never work on a radio when powered-up). It also works well on stained bakelite and molded plastic tarnished by years of tobacco smoke.

I do this with Fels Naptha Soap, but I warm it up to where its soft. Then put it in an old blender used for soap only, and blend it up. So much easier then grating the bar of soap!
Fels-Naptha Heavy Duty Laundry Bar Soap 5.50 oz Jewel-Osco
Many's the time I've been requested to pass judgement on a bleach or detergent and have respectfully declined. There's certainly a need for someunbiased judgement of such products, but my main concern for now is personalhygiene and I have hardly scratched the surface of the soaps designed for that purpose that are on the market today. That having been said, I'm sure you can imagine my chagrin when I discovered I had puchased a bar of laundry soap to review. Although placed with the hand soaps, Fels-Naptha is explicitly designed for the purpose of washing laundry, and is a skin irritant. This was clearly a dilemma I would have to face head-on. I realizedthat it was possible that I was not the only consumer who had purchased Fels-Naptha with the intention of washing with it, and it that was a bar soap. I decided that I would attempt to clean my hands with the soap, and report my findings honestly. I must stress the importance of following the directions included with your soap. Soap is a poison, and I am experimenting in professional capacity. Use your head.The bar itself is quite interesting. It is 2 1/4 by 5 inches, which conformswith the size of its wrapping paper. The coloring is almost neon bright, and appears to be a flourescent yellow-orange in house lighting, and resembles the shading of police tape or municipal signs when examined under the harsh glare of sunlight. This is quite different from the soft whites of Ivory andLux, or the mellow cream of tone. Even the crayon colors of Dial for Kidsseem mellow compared to this laundry bar. A bar of this color would be a bold way to start one's day. The shape is that of an elongated brick, withfirm squared-off sides. The front and back of the soap are indented by less than a centimeter, and it looks as if there is a slighly raised borderof about a centimeter surrounding the soasp. Inside the indentation is theFels-Naptha logo, lacking the 25 lines and the overhanging rectangular barsseen on the front. The rest of the soap is blank and uninteresting. The soap's odor is remarkably similar to that of Lux, which had the scent ofbaby powder to it. There is also a strong, strong chemical edge to it, more like a toilet cleaning fluid than a laundry detergent. I don't likethe soap's odor at all, as it is much too strong. Due to the size, odor and color of the bar, I'd say it has more differences from regular soaps than it has similarities.
