Greetings! I am in OK and totally new to soap making. I have tons of rendered lard and want to use it to make soap. I have no idea what I am doing, and despite reading blogs, watching videos and listening to a seasoned goat soap maker, I still feel clueless! I am here for help. I made one batch and it didn’t go so well. Luckily, I found this forum and someone advised me to rebatch the botched chemistry experiment of my first batch. It seemed to work. I need a good recipe. I don’t know what oils to blend with the lard for a good bar. And, to be honest, the lye calculator confuses me. My guy made soap before using a cold process and no lard. Thanks for reading!
