Exactly. You should be careful of course. I look at it like this. If you ever do any sort of candy making or deep frying that is just as dangerous as lye. I lady where I work had a horrible injury this year making some sort of candy for Christmas. A pot of 300+ degree boiling sugar or oil is just as dangerous (and in my opinion more unstable) than a lye solutions. Yet you never hear anyone say " oh heavens no, we don't make pralines at my house. It is far to dangerous!"faithy said:Bret said:
Ok you mean they sell lye in a box...... WOW i've only seen it in plastic containers......... :shock:
just giving you a bad time.....
it's really worth trying. Working with lye is no more scarey than doing many other things. You just need to give it a nice healthy dose of respect.
