My Gran and Mum have both used Knight's Castile Soap all their lives upon till a few years ago when it disappeared from our local supermarkets ASDA, Morrisons, etc. It then appeared in our local 'Quality Save' and they bought it from there for quite some time and then they stopped selling it too.

Does anyone know which shops still sell it?

Thanks

Gosh, that's a blast from the past. Always reminds me of my godmother who used it.

Unfortunately I have no idea where it can be bought from now. But perhaps it's available online.

There is still an official website: http://www.knightscastile.com/knightscastile.htm so it must still be sold. My Mum has seen other Knight's Castile products in the shops such as wet wipes but not the soap.

I did just find one online store that sold the soap but as they are wholesalers they charge 14.12 for every order under 25!!!! So it certainly isn't worth buying it online.

It doesn't matter if we can't find it anywhere, my Mum was just curious as to why it had disappeared so I though I'd ask on good old Digital Spy!

The 99p shop in Sutton sells this soap. 4 bars for 99p. Also they sell 4 bars of Lux soap (made in Saudi Arabia) but still smells the same.

You don't seem to be able to get big bars of soap any more.

You know that point where a piece of soap becomes too small to be effective as bath soap? The cynic in me suggests that by forcing us to buy smaller bars, we waste more and therefore have to buy more.

I always stick the old little one to the new bar. It 'melts' (for want of a better word) in. No waste at all.

They have a load in Checkout in Batley, but as you are in Cheshire, that's no real use to you!

Never mind Knight's Castillle - what about Lifebouy soap? Remember - the stuff that encouraged you to whisper BO into your best pal's ear (then duck fast before he belts you one!)

God that stank!
And made your eyes water if you got the stuff too near them.

Do you remember the slogan - "Cadum for Madam"

My school pal changed it to "Camay for Mammy"!

Thank god you can still get Imperial Leather - I love picking off the label when the soap bar gets worn down!
