I have been using this to make soap. My only complaint is my local Walmart does not carry it in store, so have to order online. Not only does this lye work to make soap have also used it to clear clogged bathtub drain and slow kitchen sink.

Affordable Tech grade lye for Soap Making
I bought this about 2 years ago when I first got into soap-making and I still have 1/2 of the bottle left. Soaps made with lye tend to have a high ph because of the alkaline in lye. I’m still experimenting with my formulations to make the soap more nourishing and less stripping. The coffee colored soap you see in the pic is my best batch so far (might be because of the high concentration of olive oil). The white soap was the worst batch which was my first batch, lol. I found that’s it was because of the high concentration of coconut oil made it too cleansing. I use this for soap making only (using < 2oz per batch) even though drain opener lye is technical grade (the lowest grade). Using tech grade for soap-making is actually quite common, so I chose to buy this one which was the cheapest one. Lye grade: technical ➡️ laboratory➡️ food Supposedly the difference is the processes they go through to ensure purity. Some say it’s impossible for even food grade lye to be completely free of metal contamination. I never used this for drain cleaning. The fact that none of the hardware stores carry lye (but have it online) makes it obvious that lye is not a popular solution for drain cleaning. Prior to ordering this online, I went to get it locally from Home Depot and the sales guy asked me, “What type of pipe are you using it for?” You should have seen his face when I told him I was going to use it for soap-making.

Use for soaping, have reordered multiple times!
Bought one of these to try my luck at soap...It worked well and I ordered 2 the next time. It works just fine and the price is at least half the amount of other lye products. I just came on the website to order more. Only once I had an orange spot in a bar of soap...Totally my fault. Since then Ive seen ppl pour their lye water through a strainer. But mine was due to high olive oil content I think. Anyway, great product for soap making... Good luck!
Worked well on a clogged bathroom sink.
