Thought to try our hand at soap making. Could not find lye (sodium hydroxide)locally. Tried supermarket, farm co-op, hardware store. None have carried the "Red Devil" product for years. Any suggestions?? Thanks

If anybody is intrested in making soap they might check out this site. then click on "Swap Shop" and look for "Inventory for soap making"

I cannot find the link on the "chadrad" website that would give me more information in soap making. I would greatly appriciate it if you could e-mail me with either a new link or a recipe if you would be so kind. I am making lye soap for school and would like the recipe. Thank you much.

You can also make your own lye by pouring water over wood ashes and saving the biproduct--lye water. The lye water is then added to fat to make soap.

Grandma used to put ashes in her wooden rainbarrel
and then tap off what lye she needed to make soap, usually during butchering. Tell ya what though - don't use aluminum around lye - unless you like to watch things foam over! :)
