Ahmad's Science Club: soap making


We use it and at times need it, but sometimes soap is thought of as just that plain bar at the store.

Did you know almost everyone already have the ingredients to make your own homemade soap at home?

In this first day of Ahmad's Science Club we get sudsy and talk soap.

Join us as we meet Mark Englehart of Michigan Soapworks in Saginaw Township and see how he makes his artisan soaps, that are cheaper, last longer, and smell better than some of the store bought bars.

He even makes one specifically designed for hunters.

  • Olive oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Palm oil
  • Castor Oil
