Hello from Oklahoma. I'm new to soap making and am looking forward to learning from you all and sharing my successes and boo boos with you.

I do have one question to start with. I live near Tulsa, OK and am having the hardest time finding a local supply for lye. I've called every hardware store in and around Tulsa and no they don't carry, what are you making drugs with it, attitude, attitude. I even tell them I'm a soap maker but the tone in their voice goes from cheery to dripping when I ask for lye. Give me a break ... lol.

Anyone in the Tulsa area know were I can buy lye?

Hi, welcome to SMF wintersnow! We are a great little, well fast growing soap making community! We all share the same love for this art, craft, profession. You are most welcome here! We live in Springfield, MO just down the road 2 hours from you! Cool!!!
I have 80 pounds in storage, bought it in FL before we moved back to MO in April. There are sever online suppliers....AAA, Boyer, to name a couple of the less expensive web sites. Glad you are with us, ENJOY! :D

Here are the links to the better online lye prices:

AAA Chemical------ http://www.aaa-chemicals.com/30-pounds-naoh-fg.html

Even though I have not done business with him, a buddy of mine who makes soap says AAA is A-! OK!

Boyer Corp.----- http://www.boyercorporation.com/index.html

You have to call their toll free number to order, but I hear good prices and are in IL, fairly close. HTH's!

Paul.... :wink:
