Are you ready to learn how to make soap? Have you thought about what kind of soap making you want to try first?
If you're new to this craft then you probably didn't realize that there are quite a few different types of soap that can be made at home.
Bar soaps, liquid soaps, transparent or glycerin soaps, cream soaps and whipped bar soaps are a few examples of homemade lye soap.
Once you have decided what type of soap you would like to make, you can then decide on what soap making method to use. (One thing about soap making you will learn....there are always so many choices to make!)
Below you will find a list of the different types of soap making methods used. As I am able, I will be adding links to tutorials for as many of the methods as possible.
The Soap Making Forum is a great place to get some advice on how to make soap from other soap makers.
You might find it beneficial to attempt making homemade lye soap for the first time with a friend.
It's nice to have an extra set of eyes able to read about what the next step is or perhaps to share the chore of stirring. Not to mention, it's much more fun if you have someone to share the experience with!
