This article is about an older version of DF.

Lye is made by a dwarf with the lye making labor enabled, at an ashery, and requires 1 bar of ash and 1 bucket.

Lye is used to make soap and potash, though potash can also be made directly from ash. Lye must be moved from the buckets into a barrel to make the soap.


Why make potash out of lye instead of ash?[edit]

  • To train your dwarves by making them do extra tasks.
  • If you have left over lye from making soap.
  • A single barrel holds 100 units of lye, while a single bin holds only ten bars of ash, allowing for much more efficient long-term storage.
  • Lye can be bought at the "embark" screen but ashes cannot.
