What's the difference between Zote and Fels Naptha?

They are both considered laundry soaps. Does anyone know the difference, or the ingredients in them?

TIA!

Zote is made with animal fat and smells like citronella(I don't know that it actually has that in it)I don't think the Fels Naptha is. I think Fels has something similar to mineral spirits in it and smells better.

The Fels Naptha is like chemical detergent in bar form. Dial the makers of it do not fully disclose what is in it. You are to avoid skin contact with both soaps. Personaly I do not think they are green products and not safe to use. I would stay with castile soaps that disclose what is in them.

i found the zote doesnt work as well and is much softer, which has made it harder to use when making my own powdered detergent since it clumps together.
