Caustic Soda are white pearls that are easily soluble in water. Caustic Soda is widely used in various cleaning techniques in industry, such as cleaning pipes, bottles, barrels and installations in, for example, hobby breweries. Why smear wood with stripper and scrape it off if you can also lye. It’s a pretty easy process.
You can make a bath with the caustic soda in which you dip your wood and let it leach for a while, about 2 hours.
Make sure that you remove metal parts beforehand or rinse them well after the treatment because the lye is very corrosive. After leaching you should rinse the wood with vinegar so that the lye is neutralized. You should maintain approximately 100 grams per liter of warm water. Be careful not to have hot water.We supply caustic soda in various packaging: 1kg bucket, 7.5kg bucket and a 25kg bag.

Repeat if necessary. Making soap yourself
Making soap is a fun activity with an even nicer result. We can make hard soap from caustic soda and potassium hydroxide liquid soap
from its congener . Many soap makers often use olive oil because this is the cheapest useful oil, in addition, the palm oil and the castor oil can be used, but these are the more luxurious and more expensive types of oil. An essential oil can of course also be added for a wonderful scent.This oil can also be made yourself by extracting, for example, lavender with isopropanol .
Not only do the substances neutralize each other’s effect, but acids and bases react very violently with each other, whereby boiling and corrosive liquid can splash out of the drain. Caustic soda is a corrosive agent, so please always wear chemical gloves and possibly safety glasses .
