|Job Title||Soap Maker|
|This article is about the current version of DF.|
Soaper is the skill associated with the soap making labor. Soap makers create soap from tallow or oil, and lye at the Soap maker's workshop. The soap can then be used for cleaning or as a construction material. Soap has no quality modifiers, so any dwarf can be assigned the task and yield the same result; the only difference is faster production.
Soap is critical to avoid infections in wounded dwarves.
Note that lye storage currently suffers from a bug that can render your lye "invisible" to your dwarves, which can make soap manufacture difficult. See the lye page for information on avoiding this problem.
