SOAP MAKING TIPS - (Finding & Using Lye)
Lately, finding lye has
become a problem for the small soap maker. Unfortunately, it's an
ingredient in illegal homemade drugs, so the lye companies have just
about all stopped packaging it for household use.
* You cannot use any kind of drain cleaner. You must find 100% lye. *
-- 100% pure lye can be purchased at Amazon.com!
-- Try the cleaning supply section of your local hardware stores. I've heard Lowe’s carries an 18-ounce bottle of real lye.
CAUTION! Lye can cause, extreme, burning pains if it contacts your skin. If you happen to get a lye burn, pour white vinegar on the burn to neutralize the lye. If you spill lye, wipe the area with generous amounts of white vinegar to be sure all lye is neutralized. Wear protective clothing over skin and goggles over eyes.
