This pack of Marseille soaps from Marius Fabre contains two bars, each with effective stain-removing properties.
The darker soap is an olive-oil Marseille soap that contains Terre de Sommières, an absorbent natural clay. Use this bar on dark fabrics to remove all kinds of stains, from coffee & tea to grass & dirt.
The lighter soap is Marius Fabre's Marseille laundry soap, enhanced with the whitening power of baking soda. Use this one on lighter fabrics, where it's effective on all types of stains, including blood, grease, and wine.
Marseille soap with Terre de Sommières: olive oil, coconut oil, water, glycerin, sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, water, seplolite (clay)
no coloring, perfume, preservatives, or chemical additives
palm oil free
Use: Wet the stain-removing soap slightly then rub it directly on the stain. For difficult stains, leave it for 15-30 minutes before laundering. A clean, repurposed toothbrush with soft bristles makes a nice tool for gently loosening stains.
We recommend using cold water and Marseille Soap Flakes, whether you wash the item by hand or in the washing machine.
