Sudsy Science: Making Soap with the Franklin Family Online
Jane Franklin Mecom once had to explain to her famous brother, “There is a good deal of Phylosephy in the working of crown soap.” Why was soap so difficult to master? Join Janine Boldt as she discusses 18th-century soap-making and why we should take trade sciences as seriously as the Franklins. Learn about the Franklin family soap recipe and about some of the women in the Franklin family who made, sold, and experimented with the trademark soap.
