After our 2 year old decorated my tan leather sofa with a Bic ink pen, we tried all tips provided and nothing worked. Finally, I used a Fels Naptha Laundry Soap Bar and lathered it up on the leather and let it set a few minutes.

I bought some Fels Naptha bar soap. I know it is a great laundry stain remover and I also have some flower/garden recipes that require this kind of soap, but are there any other cleaning recipes for this brand of soap?

If anyone has any answers I would love to read them.

Thank You,
Ronda S from Clarksburg, WV

When I was a youngster we used to make a paste of Fels Naptha soap and smear it on our poison ivy to dry it up... to this day, still find it works.. Anita, NJ

My mother, who is now deceased, introduced me to this great stain remover!! I keep a bar of it in a tupperware bowl with a little water in bottom of bowl. When I have a stain to treat, I simply use a toothbrush and get some of the softened Fels Naptha (it will be jelly like consistency) and brush on the stain. I let it set a few hours or overnight then wash as usal....I have found it to be the best stain remover ever!

Using that soap in your laundry will also get rid of the oil from the poison oak plant.

You can use old fashioned Fels-Naptha laundry soap for many uses. It can be used as a stain remover, to wash off poison ivy residue.
