1850 Soap Making
  • By NICHOLAS 4

Soap Facts
  • Soap could be sold at a general store.
    Pioneers still made their own soap to save money.
    Lye soap is made of two ingredients- lye and
    lard. The lye came from hardwood ashes and lard
    came from pigs. Both of these items were
    available on every farm.

FACTS ABOUT LYE
  • Lye is a chemical that can burn the skin. It is
    one of the ingredients in soap. The pioneers used
    hoppers for lye. A hopper is a wooden barrel with
    a plug on the side. Ashes were placed in the
    hopper and water was allowed to drip through it
    for lye. They pulled the plug from the hopper and
    lye was collected.

Soap Facts
  • Lye is the ingredient in soap that cleans
    clothing, but lard is needed to help dissolve
    greases and balance the causticity of the lye.
    Pioneers melted lard and then combined it with
    lye to make soap.

5
Finishing Touches
  • They stirred the mixture for hours until it
    began to harden. When the stir stick could stand
    straight up in the soap, it was ready to be
    poured into a box where it hardened completely.
  • The soap had to sit for two weeks to a month
    before it could be cut into bars and used for
    bathing, laundry, and dishes.
