I would like to make some soap. I've tried the melt-n-pour and now I want to try the other kind - cold-process or hot-process, I believe the technique is called. Where in town can I get supplies for that?

Thanks.

Take a look at this tutorial.  You should be able to find all your supplies at your local grocery store (or dollar store) and you may need to find a hardware store for the lye.

You can't buy lye in the hardware store anymore. It's been banned b/c people make meth with it. I have ordered from Kangaroo Blue before, nice people.
