I do not believe it is being produced anymore. There is another that many quilters use, called Orvis soap. It is actually used for horses but you can find it online at many quilt shops.

I use a product called Restoration. It is made in Lancaster, PA. I was extremely impressed with the results on an old, inherited quilt that I assumed was ruined. It also worked wonders on inherited old, yellowed linens made years ago by my grandmother. I buy it on ebay at the link below, but it is probably available other places online.

Here is a link that might be useful: ebay Restoration cleaner

I see nothing on that site that tells what is in Restoration Cleaner...perhaps a bleach.
Orvis is a neutral soap...that's all.

I wash linens in baking soda and vinegar.
