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.

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?

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. I have been trying to find it closer to home in SC, but have had no luck so far.

Hi there, I live in Upstate New York, and it's not sold here, unless I go online, which it is much too expensive. How much did you pay for each bar, and then tack on another 20%...?

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?

Many people do not know that Octagon Soap is no longer produced and cannot usually be found in any normal places/stores where soap is sold.

You can find bars for sale on several auction sites but they are expensive and as supply dwindles will probably become even more expensive.
From recent research, it appears that eBay may have the best prices, but comparison is the best way to judge.
Here is a link to bars for sale on eBay:

And - just in case someone reading this thinks the prices are outrageous and nobody would pay that for a single bar of soap - here is a link to the recently sold bars on eBay:

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.

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.

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.

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. I have seen it available on Amazon-for an insanely high price per bar. Time to start searching for a good substitute.

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 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.)?
