Make Soap from Yucca Leaves
Here's how to make yucca soap and avoid killing the yucca plant:
Cut a handful of yucca leaves.
Use your knife to scrape the waxy, green skin off of the leaves.
Place the scrapings in a sealable container with some water.
Shake the container vigorously for several minutes.
Pour the liquid off into another container and discard the scrapings.
The liquid can be used as hand soap, shampoo, disinfectant wash, laundry soap, or dishwashing soap.
