In my local area Walmart carries it and it is with all the Rit clothing dyes, I think Rit actually makes it. Usually all the Rit stuff is in the laundry aisle. (11/20/2005)
Most of our stores carry it, Walmart, Save-A-Lot, Krogers, Shop-N-Save. Even our Ace Hardware & some of the other hardware stores carry it. Good luck. (11/20/2005)
You could try the website, http://www.mrsstewart.com . You should be able to locate it thru this site. Good Luck! Happy Thanksgiving
They don't know what it is, but they do sell it in the grocery store. It is a small blue bottle, look by all the cleaning products. My daughter use borax for her crystals. (11/22/2005)
You could buy your bluing at the store under the name Mrs. Stewart's Laundry bluing (01/22/2007)

My local Shop-Rite sells it in the laundry isle. (03/18/2007)
I live in NJ and it is available at the local Shop-Rite in the laundry isle. (03/18/2007)
Everyone the bluing is in safeway! Put this in safeway.Com under search: Mrs. Stewart's (03/27/2007)
My child also needs this for a science project to make "Blue Moon Rocks". We have asked several people what it is and also looked at WalMart. We haven't had any luck, either. Now that I am looking on-line, I am finding that it is sold in NY and more northeastern states. We live in SC and are having a hard time finding it. We may end up calling a friend in NY to have it shipped to us. In the meantime, I bought Borax and we will try it to see how it works. I think we may not see as much blue as we would with bluing.
Editor's Note: I find it here in nearly every grocery store. It is usually on the top shelf near the borax and other laundry additives. From looking on line it doesn't seem to be in SC: https://www.mrsstewart.com/pages/wheretofind.htm
But maybe you can find a state near you. Also they have online ordering at the http://www.mrsstewart.com site. (04/15/2007)
There is some laundry bluing in Alberson's near Golden Co. If you live there anyway.
I need this for growing crystal gardens. Where on earth is it? I looked up on google and the answer was right there...well, to my question. It's the only thing i need. So go to rite aid. (10/08/2007)
In Florida you can buy it at Sweetbay Supermarkets (formerly Kash N Karry). Let's grow some crystals! (11/02/2007)

I have also gone to over 15 stores in the Miami, FL area. The store clerks don't even know what it is. And the funny thing is I used to have a lot of bluing balls that my grand ma brought me me from Panama in Central America, because it is used for ringworm. Think I threw them away, but I found this page because I too need it for my sons experiment. <http://www.kilianhardware.com/mrsstewlaunb.html>
Good luck to all. I asked myself every day why did we pick such a hard experiment. ( only because we cant find one ingredient) :)
Our local Amish stores carry it. (01/06/2008)
They have it at wal-mart I think. (01/28/2008)
Amazon sells Mrs. Stewart's bluing, and Mrs. Stewart's website has instructions for growing the crystals, as well as an explanation of why they grow. (03/30/2008)
How bluing is used: Back in the day when people wore white cotton shirts,
and stood by an ironing board all day..we used bluing in the rinse cycle of the washer to produce even whiter than white shirts. It works! Can you say "so white it hurts my eyes"? You can buy it for less here:
