Soap From Scratch - When the Preps Run Out
So most of us here believe in some type of Preps. Problem is we don't know how long to prep for!

That calls for knowledge of how to do the basics. I highly recommend the foxfire series of books. Everything from fence making, food storage, to soap making.

Speaking of soap, how long till you run out if TSHTF?

Do you know the basic ingredients? No?

Lye

Fat

Water


So where do you get lye? Order it on the Internet right? LoL
Yes, most soap makers do just that. But in a shtf scenario with no electricity and no stores what then? How did our ancestors do this?

It's simple really. Lye comes from ashes. Water is combined or poured over coals and ashes creating lye, which is very caustic btw.

Fat from any fatty animal is boiled down (rendered), to similar temp of lye. Melted fat is combined with lye.. Detailed instuctions here: [link to www.grandpappy.info]

Usually takes a few days to firm up enough to cut.

I will fetch a few videos:
Here's one in making lye

9lbs of fat and lye water made in the sun!



crazy lady rendering fat (melting fat), which she bought 4 lbs of from a kill house.

oh and if you want it scented, buy a few bottles of essential oils or fragrance oils. Essentials are very concentrated. If you want to be fancy, add some dye.

Re: Soap From Scratch - When the Preps Run Out
I bought some of this soap from a local civil war fair. It works, but the process to make it is crazy, but cool to watch in person.


Water and a good ol' wash cloth for me. Maybe some pine needle water.

How about how to use the sun for 'firing' clay pots?
How about how to sun dry foods, tomatoes, et al?
How about basic medicinals, like pine and eucalyptus, dandelions and others that pretty much grow everywhere?

Other books/ sources to recommend, OLD issues of Mother Earth news, etc.? (Yes, I agree, the Foxfire books are great, as are any books, if you can find them, from the Farm in Tennessee, or any other successful 'hippie' commune from the sixties and seventies....some of those folks were very serious about getting back to the land, and learned and shared a lot)

Everyone should get a copy also, of the "Barefoot Doctor's Manual" what chinese doctors use when going into the poorest, most remote villages to care for hurt and sick...excellent ideas in there, on how to use what is at hand for medical care.

Soap is also the leading cause of super-bugs in hospitals.

It also ages and destroys people's skins. How do you think all these retarded skin care products stay 'important' to the zombie sheep.

For the record, your unwashed skin IS a big part of your immune system. You wash your natural oils off, and you are washing a large part of your natural defenses away.

That being said, of course there are just some parts of the body that just demand daily washing, the armpits, genitalia,
and the poop part. Yuck. And hands.
We will always need soap....but relearning some of the older ways and whys IS a damn good idea.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1647831


From gandpappy.info
"
In my opinion, soap is one of the basic necessities of life for the following five reasons:

Personal hygiene: Good health is maintained by washing your hands before eating and by taking a bath on a regular basis.
Laundry: If your clothes get really filthy then they will collect lots of germs and those germs will eventually attack your body and you will get sick. During hard times families with small babies quickly revert back to cloth baby diapers that require a really good cleaning before being reapplied to the baby's bottom.
Dish washing: If your eating utensils are not clean then it won't be long before you get sick from the microscopic organisms that collect and grow on your dishes.
Wound care and other medical situations: Even small wounds can get infected and become life threatening if they are not properly cleaned with soap at the earliest possible opportunity.
Disease control: Soap is extremely valuable in preventing the spread of diseases because you can wash the bed sheets, clothes, and eating utensils of the sick person, and you can also give the sick person a daily bath or cleaning to help neutralize any germs on the sick person's body."
Why is it that when someone tells you that there’s billions of stars in the universe, you believe them. But if they tell you there’s wet paint somewhere you have to touch it?

Re: Soap From Scratch - When the Preps Run Out


Who said anything about bathing itself?

Bathing is good maybe once or twice a week - soap is bad, even used once for anything. Bathing in FLOWING water is a necessity, bathing in a tub is just sitting in your own filth. A clean-water shower is all anyone needs.


If you grew up like a NORMAL person you would have picked and eaten your snot when younger - ever think that is one way your body 'injects' itself with bacteria in order to IMPROVE the immune system?

There is MORE bacteria under your fingernails DAILY than there is around a toilet seat, so if you pussies are so scared of germs then why not cut your fingers off!?

Any fool that buys antic-bacterial soap and 99.9% killer soap are only destroying themselves and their family - they are NOT helping ANYTHING, why do you think the hygiene market is so strong.

Stop eating so much disgusting filthy food as well and maybe your bodies won't pore out so much nasty smelling bacteria. All the rotting meat and fucked up junk food - eat healthy and suddenly your body is healthier and easier to manage - surprising, no?


Obviously, i'm not saying be a dumb fuck and not wash - i'm saying wash, but don't use poison - like all the shampoo and body shit in which most of you can't even pronounce the first ingredient.

All it takes is common sense.
