Octagon was a popular brand of bar laundry soap. However, it no longer being manufactured. It's expensive, but if you really need to own Octagon bar laundry soap, you can still purchase some here.
Fels-Naptha is still available and much cheaper so that could be an alternative. Here is a link on Amazon.

Where can I get Octagon soap in Raleigh, North Carolina?
Hi - in Florida this can be found at Walmart Stores, Winn Dixie, Publics, Dollar Store and more. Pretty common here so some of your other stores may carry it. Was there a particular reason you were needing this type of soap as it is kinda strong (for me).
Maybe someone could help with a problem with a similar type of soap?
Where can I buy Octagon bar soap in Charlotte, North Carolina?
By Mary J
Here in Lexington, I get mine at Food Lion.
As of some time in 2013, I had read that production had ceased for Octagon soap. Those who like it and can still find it might want to stock up. Those who can't find it may want to check local privately owned stores and shops to see if you can find it then stock up.
I love Octagon All-Purpose soap and have a hard time finding it. The last time I bought Octagon Soap Bar was in a hardware store in Black Mountain, NC.
Is there a phone number where I can call to order Octagan soap?
By Charles from AL
Since Octagon soap is no longer made it has become a "collectors"
item and can sometimes be found on auction sites. Some people have reported finding a rare bar at a "bent N dent" store or an older small grocery store. I am afraid that Octagon soap has become a thing of the past.
Maybe someone else has some ideas?
Is there any place in North Carolina or South Carolina that sells Octagon soap?
I need to buy Octagon soap asap! It is great for getting rid of redbugs/chiggers, but my local store said it isn't made anymore. If not, does anyone know of something else that can be used. Itchy!

Here's one place you can buy it:
Hi - I found some at a local "bent & dent" store. Keep looking at any store you visit and you may get lucky.
(just checked the Vermont store link and this is not currently available.)
I have seen it on Amazon but it is very expensive. It is not only good to get rid of redbugs but will really get all the hair spray etc out of your hair. It isn't as strong as it seems. You can even wash poison ivy with it an not rinse it off. I love it and am clinging to the last little bit of my last bar. I wish Colgate would start back making it. Maybe we should all write them.

Hello! Unfortunately Octagon soap had ceased production-your best bet locally would be to find a small family-owned store that may have some left.

Where might I find Octagon soap in my home town of Columbia, Mississippi?
By Carol Lee
I found it online at 'Soaps Gone Buy' It is made by Colgate.
Our local "Giant Food Store" in VA has Octagon soap on its shelves, try your grocery stores and if they do not have it, ask them if they would order some for you, never know, they just must accommodate your request. Good luck.
I have looked everywhere for Octagon soap. Where can I find it around Rock Creek, Alabama? I"ve tried Walmart, drug stores, hardware, and feed and grain stores. Help please.
It is no longer being made. Your best bet at this point is to check little mom and pop stores, and little holes-in-the-wall, and stock up when you see it. You can also do a google search from time to time to see if anyone has resurrected it but as recently as a year ago it was no longer manufactured.
Where can I buy Octagon soap in Madison, Florida?
By Annie Jo
I just read something about Octagon soap on another website a few hours ago...bad news, you may not find it anywhere local, it is no longer made. I did see it on Amazon though and it was really expensive! Best bet, check small obscure stores and buy all you see. I was so disappointed, I had plans to use that the next time I made laundry soap. Good luck!
I am looking for Octagon Soap in Maryland. Anyone know where I can find it?
By Jean L.
I think I have seen it at Giant food stores, possibly at Kmart as well. It is usually in the laundry aisle instead of with other bar soaps in the personal care aisle.
Where can I find Octagon soap in Killeen Texas?
I'm not from Texas, but try a hardware store. Better yet, call first around to different stores. That way you'll save time & gas. Good Luck. : )
I recently heard about Colgate Octagon all-purpose laundry bar soap. It sounds very close to my grandma's favorite, Fels Naptha. I still have some of her Fels, but I'd like to try Octagon. I checked out Colgate's website and they don't even mention that they make it anymore. At the least, I would think there might be a, "find in your local store" kind of click-on. Is there somewhere in the Phoenix area I can buy it or am I stuck with ordering online only (e.g. at Amazon, etc.)?
By Terri T.
You can order it at Soaps Gone By. My dear friend Julia told me about it. They send you your order pretty quick. You can buy other soaps there too.
I am trying to find Octagon soap at wholesale prices.
You can buy by the case at soapsgonebuy.com not sure if that is what you want.
