Elisabeth Roper, B. S. (2014). Basic Soap Making : A guide to make your own soaps. Retrieved from

A "how to" book about basic soap making with many pictures and two recipes. It gives further advice how to develop individual soaps based on the basic recipes for cleaning and washing soap.

A short guide how to produce your own basic soap.

When you read the labels of commercial shower soaps, you will discover all kinds of chemicals and if you are lucky a small amount of coconut oil. Most of it is palm oil!!! You are probably used that soap dries your skin out and you need to use lotion afterwards. This is not the case when you make your own shower (and hand-washing) soap. A proper handmade traditional herbal soap will hydrate and nurture your skin. The internet is full of recipes for such soaps. Do your own research and develop your own recipe based on the basic one given above. The washing soap will take stains away very well and your clothes will be very clean. I used it in a top-loader cold water washing machine with good results (on very dirty children clothes!). To my surprise whites didn't grey and on the other hand colors stayed bright. I made the soap to save costs and was very positively surprised by its quality. It is much better than locally available washing detergents (Thailand) and costs less. You can play with the amount of coconut oil. When reduced to 50 g it will still be a good washing soap. Even the 100% palm oil sopa cleans well and can be used as a washing soap. On the other hand, if you add more coconut oil (reduce the same amount of palm oil, the total oil has to stay 907 g) you get a stronger stain removing quality.
