Can you imagine a world without soap?

It would be a very dirty place, wouldn’t it?

Do you know when or how soap was discovered?


An ancient roman legend gave soap its name; the legend said rain on mount sapo washed wood ashes and melted animal fat into a river.

The soapy mixture helped clean people’s clothing and skin.

People called the mixture soap because it came from mount sapo (it’s a fictional mountain supposed to exist somewhere near Rome, presumably in Italy).
