I cut up my VDH Deluxe (glycerin based soaps can be melted to fit your mug), place the pieces in my ceramic shaving mug and 'melt' them in the microwave for 30 seconds and then let it cool...works out great for me!!!
However, as member 'rockviper' has stated, "Don't go melting anything which contains tallow (Williams does)", because as member 'goatee' put it..."it looks like oatmeal".
