Marseille Laundry Soap Flakes | Marius Fabre


Marius Fabre has been making these traditional French soaps since 1900. These soaps are made in large cauldrons and the same unique process passed down through their family. This particular brand of French soaps is recognizable by their iconic vintage style packaging. 


Marseille Laundry Soap flakes in 750g paper box. With this new "palm oil-free" formula, it is advise you to proceed as follows to make your laundry: put 30g of soap flakes at the bottom of your bottle pour very hot water on it, to melt them (start with approximately 200ml) shake well and pour in about 200 ml of very hot water again, shake well and let stand if necessary. Top up again with very hot water to reach 1 liter of detergent. A phase shift can occur in laundry, due to its natural formula. You just need to shake the bottle vigorously to mix well again. Over time, if you prepare your laundry in advance, it will thicken. You just have to add hot water and shake it, to dilute it again. Practical hints: Recommended for delicate clothing, baby linen, woollens, as well as for people suffering from skin irritations. If your water is hard, add a cupful of white vinegar in the fabric conditioner compartment at regular intervals. For a scented fragrance, add a few drops of essential oil to your washing liquid (e.g. lavender, tea-tree or citrus). For a whiter than white effect, add a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda or a small handful of soda crystals
