    I’ve heard using lye for soap-making is dangerous. Is there an easier way to do it, without lye?

    • I think so, but you need soap to begin with… if that makes sense. Do a Google search for “make soap without lye” and you’ll see some ideas. Unfortunatley, to make soap from scratch, you need lye.
