        Comments about Rooto® Crystals of Household Lye Drain Opener (1030) - 12 Pack:

        I've recently started buying old, cast iron skillets and restoring them so that I can use them again. One of the issues with old cast iron is years and years of baked on crud. After researching it, I found out that a lot of people are using lye baths in order to remove these layers of crud. You mix one pound of lye into 5 gallons of water and let the skillet soak in the solution for several days. Whatever crud is still left on it should come off easily. Just remember to neutralize the lye in a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water. Then scrub it all off with lots of dishwashing soap and hot water, dry it, and start the seasoning process to restore that 100 year old skillet to like new condition.

        My wife uses this for soap making. Our local Ace Hardware carries this, but their price for a single 1-lb. bottle is one-third of the case price for twelve one pounders. I expected some up-charge for less than a case lot, but over triple the price is profiteering in my book.

            This is a lifesaver. As a soap maker it costs a fortune to purchase online and have shipped. Now we just go to our local Ace Hardware and buy a few bottles at a time. Good and fair price. WE LOVE YOU ACE HARDWARE!

                  Ace is the only place in town that sells this. I hope they never stop or go out of business. That would spell trouble for a lot of soap makers.

                            Ace is the only local place I've found that carries pure sodium hydroxide. Saves me a lot of money in my soap-making hobby/business, because it is expensive to have shipped. Also, I like being able to buy it in 1 pound quantities. I don't like the idea of having a big container of it stored in my home.

                            I am so glad Ace Hardware sells this. Since [...] stopped carrying Roebic crystals, I thought I would have to ship in all my lye for soapmaking. NOPE! Ace to the rescue. Now I can get my NaOH for [$] a pound and it's just down the street. I can pick it up with the rest of my soap supplies.

                            Cheap, fast drain opener. Just pour some crystals down the drain and add a little water. No more clog! Wear rubber gloves because this stuff WILL burn your skin.
