Question Carbolic Soap?

this came up in convo earlier today, does any one Else here still use Carbolic Soap?

I use it daily, but it seems to have fallen out of favor over the years for more "Girly" soap.


it would be nice to know I`m not the only Die-Hard :)

I haven't seen it since I worked in a hardware store in the 60's, but my MIL still uses Fels Naptha soap in the laundry.

there used to be a little local shop that would sell it, but they closed down, so now I just get it off ebay, it works out the same price even with delivery!
I but 12 at a time and it works out to 50p each.

When I was with my ex (a truckie), I used to buy something very similar to it so that his hands matched the colour of the rest of him! I smell that soap and I think of him, so you won't see that in my house again!!! ;-)

that is indeed the strange thing with this particular soap, it evokes Very strong memories (in those old enough to remember it).
some good, some (as in your case) Not so good.

Probably the best soap ever made, and it`s been since around before WW1!

you should Google it, it`s really quite well known, and will give plenty of answers ;)
