In the Colonial times, many people brought over supplies from Europe. The Colonists needed to be sanitary, so they made soap from natural substances. Colonial soap was made using two key ingredients: lye, which colonists made from the ash of wood fires, and fat, which was the byproduct of butchering animals.

I have seen different statements on the history of soap. One said it was invented in the middle ages, and another said it was ancient. The Latin name for it was a word I recog…nized, with the root "sapo." This comes from Germanic sources, but was, in fact, Latin, and not Late Latin, so I would be inclined to believe it was ancient. Regardless, hard soap was an invention of the Middle Ages. There was a soap makers guild very early, in the seventh century, in at least one Italian city. And in writings of the time of Charlemagne, soap making was said to be an honorable craft. People of the Middle Ages believed a clean and healthy body was indicative of a clean and healthy soul. They also believed that disease could be spread by bad air, and that foul odors were therefore an evil. They were usually very clean. Clearly soap was important to them as it was how they got themselves clean.
Americans found entertainment in folk music, conversation, a handful of books, and newspapers. By 1750, every major city had a newspaper, and by the first half of the 18…th century some colonists could even borrow books from America's first subscription library, established by Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia.
According to some research studies, people watch soap operas because they help them escape problems in their own everyday lives. One study on this subject also clai…ms that people associate with soap operas because they find similarities in the social and personal problems displayed in such television shows with their own problems: "Despite the presence of melodrama in soaps, there is also a recognisable element of realism, which allows the viewers to become involved by means of relating themselves to the characters and situations." (http://www.aber.ac.uk/media/Students/pjl9601.html) Never-ending suspense is another attractive factor to soap operas.
