Soap History 101

If you are like me you wonder just how things began…like…who decided that underwear was a good idea, or, who started using soap?  I often imagine a woman from long long ago walking with a big basket of animal fat and tripping into a long used woodfire…and thus voila the villagers discovered that after a hard rain and that woodfire was lathering up, that it would be something great to bathe with….

Okay, that is just my imagination…but I really wonder if that is how it all began.  But to really get to when soap started, there is this great website Soap History that pretty much gives the low down on when soap actually started…as I have seen some website claim that the colonials were the first purveyors of the soap bubble.
