here is a place you can mail order from. you will need to fill out a waiver and say that you are making soap .

http://www.chemistrystore.com/Sodium_Hydroxide.htm


Bill
you can also get Potassium Hydroxide here if you use this to make bio the by product you can put on your lawn to better root groth. of coarse if your short on soap the by product from sodium hydroxide can be used for soap.

guess it depends if you need a shower or a green lawn:lol:

Thanks for the link...just what i am looking for.

Have you ordered from them?
yea a few times a year, but for a different reason. i use the lye to strip the photo resist from circuit boards after acid etching.
