    I have an old time recipe around her from someone else's grandma...I know she said to make it outside for it is caustic...good enough warning for me on that;)I also know there are many sites out there on soap making...even detergents for laundry. Keep us posted!! If you want this recipe I'll go look for it...Skeat

    I make it all the time. you just have to respect the lye and wear proper eye protection and gloves.

    I love homemade soap and that's all I'll ever use.

    Go for it! A good site to get you started is http://www.millersoap.com/

    You can also get big blocks of glycerine soap that you melt, add flowers, scent, colors as desired, and re-form. Michaels arts and craft store carries it near me.

    My sister used to make glycerine soap -- it smelled lovely, and she could make some really cool things with it. She even sold some of it.
