This is my first time using a message board. Please bear with me. I think I sent a reply but couldn’t find it. Yes, homemade soap is safe for anything you want to use it for like bathing, shampoos, dishes, hands, laundry. I made soap for many, many years. I don’t have a farm now nor a country house to be able to make soap. It worked all the time I raised children. I did add 1/2 cup of salt or sugar to make the soap sudsy.
