People have been using soap for more than 5000 years and the Babylonians were the first ones to master the art of soap making. They made soap from fats boiled with ashes. According to the site Soap History, “soap was used in cleaning wool and cotton used in textile manufacturing and was used medicinally for at least 5000 years.” The first evidence we have of something that looks like soap is a substance that is dated around 2800 BC., The first soap makers were Babylonians, Mesopotamians, Egyptians, as well as Greeks and Romans. All of them made soap by mixing fat, oils and salts. Soap was used for cleaning cooking utensils and not for bathing back then.
So remember: You came not knowing things about soap, but know you now do know some new information about soap.
