Question Where can I buy Lye? Caustic Soda?
I'm rusting out my plates every 1000 miles, and I'm wondering if that's normal or if it's the result of me using baking soda?
If it's because of the b.s, I researched Lye, and would like to try that out, except for the fact that Lye is a common ingredient for crystal meth, and I don't want to get on some community radar for buying meth products. Lol.
Does anyone know where I can get Lye? I have a Home Depot and a Lowes near by, so feel free to point me in the right direction. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Jack.

Jack... you can find caustic soda at Lowes in the drain opener section. It's a a yellow bottle about a foot tall called Roebic. It's called crystal drain opener. It's 100% sodium hydroxide.

Ace Hardware has the powder 100% NaOH bottle 16oz Rooto I believe...instead of the larger 32oz Roebic.

NaOH will leave black stuff on plates and pollute your output. Use KOH.
