Homemade Lye Soap Stories
The whole idea of making soap from oils and lye
leached from water passed through wood ash is a little
crazy. There is no clear expalnation historically how soap was
invented in the first place. There is a lot folk lore and speculation
surronding events which may or may not have not been historically
accurate. There was evidence of soap being developed in disperate
cultures that had litle chance of communication the knowledge
with one another. The ancient peoples must have had a common need
and priority in their culture for cleanliness. We wouldn't call
it clealiness by todays standards but all the same the basic need
for a cleansing material must have been there.In honor of soap
consumers throughout history we would like to tell your story.
We would like to offer all of customers the opportunity
to share their homemade lye soap sytories with us and we
will give you credit for your story and a link back to your website.
Any story with a nice narrative will do.
I especially like stories that are shared from grandparents or
from immigrants who have stories about soap maikng from the old
country. In either case keep the stories coming and we will grow
this part of the website together.
Don't be shy or think your story is insignificant.
All stories will be given complete consideration and most will
be included on our site.
