How to Make Old Fashioned Lye Soap

Prepare your mold. I just use a standard loaf pan lined with parchment paper and it’s always worked perfectly. Spoon soap mixture into molds. Allow soap to cool and harden for 24 hours. Remove from mold onto cutting board and cut into bars. Place bars on a tray with good airflow so that they can harden further. But go ahead and feel free use your first bar!
