I have an old vintage puck of Houbigant Fougere Royale shaving soap that has broken into a lot of pieces, making it very difficult to use now. Is there some way to soften it (heat? microwave?), so that I can squeeze all the pieces back together into one? Or do I need to grate it and then try to press it together? It's old, but I don't know the ingredients. I imagine it probably is tallow based. TIA for ideas.

Milled it and just use some drops of water to "put it back" together.Its really easy and fast to do.

+1. And in case you don't already know already, use a microplane (fine mill). The fine gratings, water and a little pressure practically result in a solid puck.

That worked. Thanks.
