I like all kinds of soap. I get those little net bags with a drawstring from Wal-Mart to put the chips in so I don't lose any of it.

I watched a show and the guy put the soap bits into a stocking and used it like that. You don't have to handle it with the tips of your finger, you can add more to it later, and it can lather.

Do you know any good resources for beginners? I Really want to learn to make soap!

Quoting matreshka:

I make my own soap.  When it gets down to the slivers I save a few compact together under warm running water.

The package I got at AC Moore had all the instructions on how to do the melt and pour. Then I added some green clay I already had (the facial mask kind) and 15 drops of lavender, I could have used more.) I cheaped out and used my own cake pans and muffin pans sprayed with oil as molds. I highly recommend getting silicone or soap molds as it makes it so much easier to get the soap out.

I  did look up some sites but forget what they were.  Google melt and pour soap making.

I smoosh the sliver of the last bar onto the new bar and kind of lacquer it down by rubbing it.  I never have to buy soap.  My mom loves buy fancy soaps so she's always giving me sopmething new to try.

 I just press the last little piece of soap onto the new bar.

You could always melt them together and make another bar of soap.

Have you ever tried making cold process soap? with lye? It's actually not that hard. The only thing that sucks is you gotta wait a few weeks before you use it...

I know how you feel. That's why I stopped using soap bar. My favorite are original Ivory body wash and Olay. Right now, I'm using this stress relief mint body wash from BB&W that I got for my birthday and I really like it.
