I found it at a grocery store called Food Max. Just go through your phone book and call all the hardware/grocery stores. Someone is bound to have it. It's called Red Devil Lye and be sure to tell them that it's used to unclog drains.
I too have been wanting to make soap and couldn't find lye. However, my mom told me all about the dangers of having lye in the house with small children. Are there any other alternatives to lye in the soap making process?

no, you just have to heat the oils up for a sec.... we have an outdoor grill with an eye on it, but I stay in the house with the door open, we have a tiny tiny doll house with the smallest kitchen ever... you can use a stick blender plugged up..
