Cold Soap

Heat twenty-six pounds of strained grease. When melted, mix it with four

pailsful of lye, made of twenty pounds of white potash. Let the whole

stand in the sun, stirring it frequently. In the course of a week, fill

the barrel with weak lye. This method of making soap is much easier than

to make a lye of your ashes, while it is as cheap, if you sell your

ashes to the soap-boiler.
