Has anyone actually made their own soap and liked it?

Has anyone tried making their own soap? Yes, I was watching Fight Club.

I’ve seen it mentioned in a few places and was curious if it’s worthwhile now that we’re all washing our hands more.

      I’ve read that you can make it pretty easily with bacon fat but I’ve also heard that it’s not easy at all. Go figure. Check reddit r/soapmaking if you’re genuinely going to give it a shot. I think it’s a cool project, but I’m content to just stock up on it. It was hard to find back in March, but I see plenty in stores right now.

      My wife is considering it, and I’ve researched it in the past. You’ll definitely want to invest in goggles to protect your eyes when handling lye.

      Get a copy of the Encyclopedia of Country Living. It’s pretty well known and goes over soap. There’s a ton of stuff in there also in case you get the bug and want to make more of your own preps. Good jumping off point.
