sodium hydroxide - what is it? : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Sodium hydroxide was listed as an ingredient in the Goat Milk Laundry Soap Flakes. Could someone please tell me what this is/where to get it? Thanks

It's lye. You can buy it in the cleaning section of any grocery store.The usual brand is called Red Devil.

It is also a very strong caustic. Be careful!!! Read the warnings.
