OT - fells naptha

Nicki - I haven't seen a bar of fells naptha soap (red/white/green wrapper?)
for sale anywhere in years.  Whatever it does for iris, I can say for sure
that "brown soap" was the patent medicine of my childhood because just about
everything I found of interest was always on, under, or just beyond the
poison ivy.   My mother used to scrub me with it so vigorously that it
almost removed my chigger bites, too.  Where do you buy it?

Merrily, a city girl now ..... in Washington, DC where my crocuses are
blooming and snow drops are almost finished.
