Lye Soap Making

4/7/2018 | Current River State Park | Salem, MO

Have you ever wondered how your great grandparents or even your grandparents made soap or canned food?  This summer at Current River State Park, there will be several classes taught that will highlight those “old ways.” This class will be Lye Soap making with Cathy Wyatt. You will learn how to make traditional lye soap in a kettle over an open fire! This is a hands-on class and you even get to take some soap home with you. Bring a small container to put it in.
