Comment on Amish soap by Bonne Campbell.
Lye can often be found at Ace Hardware stores or Lowes. At Ace it’s Rooto Household Lye and Lowes it’s Roebic drain cleaner. Must be 100% Sodium Hydroxide, no fillers. Read up on soapmaking first!!~safety etc. Join a soapmaking forum like craftserver.com Keep pets and kids away and limit distractions. Lye has become more difficult to find because it’s used in the making of Methamphetamines. Lard is at any grocery store, by the pail or the 1 lb brick.
