Just like Mom (or Grandma) used to make. Ingredients include lard, water, and lye. No scent. The average weight is 4 oz.
Mom didn’t use lye soap just for cleaning little feet and hands. There are many uses for old-fashioned lye soap:
Laundry: Use this soap in the laundry room in homemade laundry soap recipes or wet the end of the bar and use it as a stain stick. This works great for white baseball and football pants!
General Skincare: Use it daily to reduce acne and dry skin. Hunter’s will enjoy this lye soap. No scent means less likelihood of animals detecting a human presence.
Sunburn and Bug Bites: Place generous amounts of lather on your sunburn or bug bites for immediate relief.
Poison Ivy and Poison Oak: Apply the soap immediately on the suspected area of contact and rinse thoroughly at least 5 times a day. After rinsing, place soap lather on the rash and leave it till the next wash.
Insect repellent: Cover bare skin with lye soap lather and allow to dry. Place a bar of soap in any area of your home to get rid of ants.
