Granny's Lye Soap Craftsmen

Darla Kelly demonstrates soap making at Silver Dollar City.

Darla Kelly, Craftsman

At any 1880s homestead, lye soap was primarily used to clean. Whether it was people, clothes or anything else that needed a good wash, lye soap was the tool of the time period.

Darla Kelly says making lye soap is her "fingerprint in history," something her grandmother and great-grandmother did. "It's the only soap I use," she says.
