I only use bar soap when I travel.  Typically, I merge the old, tiny piece of soap with the new bar by gettting both of them wet and pressing them together.

As for soap chips I soak them in a container until mushy them I make cute little soap balls out of them.

As you use a bar of soap, it gets smaller.  At some point it becomes a small, fragile strip that's just as likely to crumble in your hands as it is to make lather.

I don't really have a favorite, I use whatever I get free or cheap. When the bars get too small too use in the shower I dry them out then store them for use making homemade laundry detergent.

I don't know if I want to mess around with lye just yet.  Even with gloves, goggles, and all the the safety gear I'm a little intimidated.

Quoting minecraftzombie:

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...

Quoting matreshka:

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.

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.

Yea. I understand. You should definitely do lots of research before you try it. And one of the most important safety thing in mixing is when you make the lye water, pour the lye into cold water. Never pour water into lye!
