Chances are that you have most of the equipment you need to make soap right around the house. The equipment and ingredients you don't have are easily found in grocery stores or online. As you giain experience making cold process soap, you might wnt to make your own wooden mold, mold liner, and soap cutter. Instructions for doing so are included in chapter 7. In the meantime, easy-to-find alternatives will work almost as well.
