Due to its dangerous goods classification, Soap & More ships Potassium Hydroxide within Canada and by Canpar Ground Courier. This can only be shipped to street addresses. NO PO boxes! Any retail size may disqualify your package from our free shipping option due to high costs associated with its transport.
There is a $35.00 Dangerous Goods Charge applied to orders of the 50lb & 55 bag sizes.
THIS FEE IS IN ADDITION TO THE REGULAR SHIPPING FEES. Smaller sizes ( a SINGLE 4KG or less) are exempt as they are considered limited quantities by Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. We ship lye within Canada.
90% purity, flakes
When working with lye never use vinegar on your skin! Water is best to rinse the skin area. It is fine on counters to neutralize.
Vinegar can neutralize lye, but it’s an exothermic reaction which means it heats up, which can cause additional burns on top of the lye burns.
Glass including pyrex can shatter when mixing your lye water, use stainless steel or #2 and #5 code Polypropylene
INCI: Potassium Hydroxide

Always keep your container tightly closed when not in use. Not only does air reduce its efficacy, but it will also attract moisture from the air and get chunky and hard to use.
