    I dug this table out of my old VRWC thumbdrive. It's a saponification table; how much lye (first figure) or potassium hydroxide (second figure) to add to how much of whatever various oil to properly make soap of it.

    EX. 1: 50 oz of beef tallow, to be made into a bar soap, will require (50 x 0.1405) 7.205 oz of lye to saponify correctly.

    Ex. 2: 100 gm of safflower oil, to be made into a liquid soap, will require (100 x 0.1904) 19.04 gm of potasium hydroxide to saponify correctly.

    Wish I had source, but this is an old 128 KILOBYTE thumbdrive I pulled it off of.

    Hope it helps... wonder how good ATSHTF soap would be as a barter item....

    My two bits...

    Thank you for this. I can definitely use this chart.
    I don’t have “hobbies” I’m developing a robust Post-Apocalyptic skill set.
