I have heard about this substance ,what will it do to guy in the picture placed in the bath with it ,Look forward to your reply , many thanks in advance.
Wow great information , I think Way back decades ago thats were the term to liquidate someone came from.
As you say a grissley byt effective way od disposing of some one .
Did not think it would have dissolved the skin tight red trunks tthats he had on thou , and other clothes.
Lye is sodium hydroxide, a very strong base (alkaline chemical). Yes, lye is used to make cleaning products, but straight lye is extremely corrosive and can even damage metal. Lye strong enough to dissolve a body is also strong enough to dissolve clothing. You can confirm this here - scroll down tot he section on sodium hydroxide):http://pfbrandt.faculty.noctrl.edu/teaching/CHM113/lab/labs/7_acids.pdfLye used in bleaches and other cleaning products is chemically changed into Sodium Hypochlorite, which bleaches but doesn't destroy. As a student in college chemistry classes, I learned that if we got sodium hydroxide on our clothes we had to throughly rinse it quickly if we didn't want a hole to develop.Anna
