Introduction of Soap

    Soap is a remarkable substance known from prehistoric times. It has the ability to remove dirt and grime from a surface chemically. For the first 150 years in America, soap making was the job for the woman of the house. The task was necessary, but long and hard. To make soap you needed some kind of oil and some kind of alkali. When mixed they create soap.
