Soap Sally

Soap Sally is a scary urban legend about an creepy old woman who kidnaps runaway children and turns them into Lye Soap.

Soap Sally

There’s a legend in some regions of Appalachia about Soap Sally. Some people say she’s an old woman who wears too much make-up and others say she’s an old man trying to pretend he’s an old woman.

According to the legend, Soap Sally stalks the area at dusk, looking for children who have run away from home. She grabs them by the hand, in a death-like grip and leads them off. And nobody ever sees them again.

People say she grinds up their bodies and turns the children into soap. There’s a special kind of soap called “Lye Soap” which was made years ago from the fat and bones of animals. Soap Sally uses the fat and bones of children to make her own special brand of soap. Some even say she made the soap to resemble children’s hands.

And when she’s done, they say she sells the soap to the parents of the missing children. The parents never realize that they are washing themselves with the remains of their own children.

Every time a child would go missing, two or three days later, Soap Sally could be seen, going from town to town, carrying a sack full of hand-made soap, selling it cheap to unsuspecting parents.

In past times, parents would warn their children about Soap Sally, saying, “If you don’t get home by dark, Soap Sally will get you,” or “stay away from those woods! Soap Sally will get you…”

    There was once a true muder case of a man and woman Happil married that killed people and turned them into pies or bread and feed them to neighbors at parties.

    I ran away from home once at 12 yrs old and went to the woods so lol im a thuggg (im back home now XD)

  3. HorrorFanGirl says

    there was a real case about a woman who made soap out of three women!.. what a spooky spooky world..o_O


    I would like to suggest soap sally that for a change she should make oil or shampoos of the children instead of soaps. It’s easy to make oil: boil the children until they are in liquid state. Come on just try these sally.

    oh my glob that’s creepy do you think if you use that soap it will make you smell bad because its dead children soap.

    The creepy thing is, this is somewhat true. In the days of the Holocaust, the prisoners of the concentration camps begged for soap. The heads of the camp would take their children, boil them, and turn them into lye soap… And give them to the unsuspecting parents.

    actually, turning human beings into soap isn’t a terribly uncommon offence. fat and bones are used in the production of soap, and there are some people who see other people as a source for the aforementioned ingredients.

    The legend in England, it’s kinda different.
    The girl called Soap Sally makes Lye soap and gives it to unsuspecting kids on the street, and she casts a spell on them, making them take the Lye. Then, she makes them eat it, in which kills them. In one version, she gave it to a girl called Victoria, who didn’t make it home, and was found in a pool of blood. You cough up blood when you eat Lye, that’s what I’ve heard.
