Sorry - for some reason the post didn't go through then double posted. I use it in my laundry detergent, but I was looking for something else to replace it with. Do I need to replace it or can I just stick with Arm & Hammer Washing soda, soap, and baking soda?

Yes, I use Fels Naptha. I was using Ivory, but Fels Naptha seems to work better.
