    sodium hydroxide 20 lbs

    We make and sell goat milk soap. Missouri has a huge drug problem, and lye is an ingredient in something they make. Consequently, it's really hard to buy lye locally - paperwork and hassle for tiny amounts. I have used your single bottle product, and am grateful for the low shipping cost on the 20 pound version. THANK YOU!

    I use this product for making soap and it works great. I enjoy the shape of the jug it comes in, it's so easy to pour.
