Our 300g Antique Soaps are made the old traditional way in cauldrons from pure olive oil & salt water from the Mediterranean Sea. It is the most famous and only true Savon de Marseille soap. Pictured here drying on racks the final stage of the making process. http://frenchsoaps.com.au/SAVON-DE-MARSEILLE-FRENCH-SOAP.html
Vintage Clip Art... "This beautiful French Label comes from an 1890′s French Invoice! I loved the fancy frame on this one, and the typography is so fun! I’ve also created a Larger High Resolution Printable, that’s sized just right for your Iron On Transfer."
If our clothing was very soiled we had to help Mom by rubbing the collars, hems, etc. with Sunlight soap and then scrubbing them on the board. White socks, underwear too if necessary. We used cold water first to "loosen the dirt", then soapy warm or hot water, then a cold rinse. Sheets were soaked overnight in the bathtub in cold water, and later Mom used bluing in the water to keep the whites from yellowing. The sun would do the rest as they blew on the line.
