Removing stains with Marseille soap

Removing stains with Marseille soap

There’s a good reason why washerwomen used to use Marseille soap on their daily washing: It’s because of its unequalled stain removing properties.
Butter, coffee, chocolate, blood... Marseille soap is ideal to get rid of stubborn stains! Among others, it is really effective on shirt collars. 

Our tip: Don’t use hot water because it would “dye” the stain into the fibres of the garment.

For everyday spots and spills (coffee, chocolate, etc.):

  1. Dampen the stain and your Marseille soap with cold water
  2. Rub the stain with the soap
  3. Leave it to soak in for a few hours
  4. Machine wash the garment for irreproachable results! 

Butter stains

  1. Cover the stain with Marseille soap flakes or grated Marseille soap 
  2. Leave it for fifteen minutes (or overnight on old stains) so that the soap can absorb the fat 
  3. Rub the stain and rinse in cold water 
  4. Machine wash 

Fruit stains

  1. Use a cloth or paper towel to remove as much fruit as possible (swab the stain so that you don’t spread it any further) 
  2. Leave the fabric to soak in cold water for a quarter of an hour. 
  3. Replace the water and add Marseille soap and lemon juice 
  4. Delicately rub the stain 
  5. Rinse in cold water 
  6. Machine wash 

Blood stains

  1. Dampen the stain a little with cold water 
  2. Rub with white Marseille soap 
  3. Leave the soap to react for a few minutes (or a few hours on an old stain) 
  4. Rub the stain in circular movements with a soft toothbrush
  5. Rinse in cold water 

For gentle, effective machine washes, you can also make your own Marseille laundry soap.
