Mexican grocery store, 89 cents a bar, bars the size of that old Fells Napta soap. Big Bars. It works too, I caught several on a trot line last year, that was all soap. It comes in white and pink, the white works better in my opinion.
While your in the store, check out their prices. LOL The store in La Porte, IN has stuff a lot cheaper than the big stores. I love that little Mexican grocery store. Example --- bunch of fresh Cilantro 49 cents. Meijer's it's 1.50. Jalapeños 50 cents a pound compared to over a dollar in Meijers. lol They are one of the few stores that has hominy in gallon cans for about 3 dollars. Hey save money when you can, and those little stores are mostly mom and pop operations.
We find ours at a Brookshire's grocery store here. 77 cents a bar. You can also use Ivory soap. It's easier to find. Use the white bar in the Ivory. The Ivory is kinda brittle you cannot cut it with a knife or it will fall apart. Use a cheap cheese slicer or a piece of monofilament or dental floss to cut it into cubes. I like to use the zote myself but my father in law uses nothing but Ivory and at times he will slaughter them with it. What the zote soap and the Ivory have in common is they both are made from animal fatty acids. Zote soap has 66% and Ivory has 50% fatty acids in them. Good luck.
