Wrapping Soap by MauserGirl Wrapping Soap by MauserGirl
Youngstown, NY - Old Fort Niagara

Deborraha the soap maker wraps soap in wax paper and ties it with ribbon before putting it into the basket for sale. She uses her grandmother's 200-year-old recipe for Scottish lye soap, as well as her family's iron soap pot, which is currently serving the fifth generation of her family, to hand-make every batch of soap.

You can buy her soap at [link] or at living history events across the United States. Lye soap can be used for everything from washing hair to washing clothes.
