To prepare your homemade Marseille soap, start by grating the Marseille soap bar. Then, combine the grated soap with a liter of water in a pan. Heat the mixture over low heat until the soap completely dissolves into the water, ensuring no residues are left. Mix gently and then turn off the heat, leaving everything in the pan and covering it with a lid. This allows any remaining soap to continue melting without needing the flame.
