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?
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
I use Fels Naptha to make my homemade laundry detergent. Wonderful stuff!
Their website used to have lots of things to use their soap for.
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!
Thank you for all of the wonderfull suggestions. Just found this site...I love it!
I tried to find their website, before and after, I posted this question, but I did not have anyluck. I must be missing it. Do you know what the address is?
