I will veer from my quilts for just a bit. I learned to make my own homemade soap about 4 years ago and have not turned back. It is another fun thing that feeds into my desire to live clean and healthy wherever I can. It is wonderful on the skin and I know all the ingredients. No detergents! I taught my sister to make it a couple years ago and she is hooked as well. We made 9 double batches last summer and this year we made 11. We also went to a soap conference in Cleveland and learned a lot. I am thinking I might have a business going when I retire! Hmm. What do ya think about that one! Everyone that uses my soap loves it, so why not start selling some. we shall see. anyway, here is a sample of what we made.
