Soap Making


Author(s):
Abstract:
In the 19th-century, many homemakers across North Carolina made their own soap called lye soap used primarily for washing clothes and general household scrubbing. Sargent discusses the basics for making lye soap, including the materials--fat, borax, lye, and water; the equipment--enamel, iron, or earthenware containers; the recipe; and the directions.
