I use Lye Soap for bathing.
Lava Soap for heavy duty cleaning, and dishes sometimes.
All soap is really Lye Soap.
Lye and Animal fat, or some other type of fat/olive oil etc. I use all kinds of natural soaps from the health food stores.
When people think of Lye Soap,they think of granny on the Beverly Hillbillies. Couldn't be further from the truth. Lye soap is safe and gentle to use.
