Excerpt from page 7

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 gain experience making cold process soap, you might want 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.

"This is an excellent book for the beginner soap maker. It does not have a lot of "recipes", but what it excells at is the how to. It goes into more detail of how than any other book I have read. The emphesis as I see it is how to make soap safely. As far as I am concerned that information alone is worth the price of the book."
