Alright so we just learned that Hyrdochloric acid is an acid DUH well
sodium hydroxide is a base which is the opposite of an acid. Sodium
hydroxide is really a fancy name for lye a real favorite of serial
killers world wide cause it dissolves dead bodies! Its corrosive which
means you dont want to go touching it and it comes in flakes, pellets
or powder because they use it in all kinds of from soap to fuel and so
Theres two kinds or grades of lye and you dont want to get them
confused. One kind called food grade lye they use for curing olives,
hominy, pretzels, Chinese noodles and another chinese food called a
century egg which i wont go into but basically is a old egg that turns
green on the inside. The other kind of lye you use for oven cleaner and
opening drains. Thats the corrosive kind and i promise you it eats
flesh they are even thinking to start using the stuff to dissolve dead
bodies instead of cremating them.
You dont want to mix lye with lots of things cause it makes all sorts
of dangerous combinations. You dont want to swallow it cause thatll
kill you and if it gets in your eye theres a good chance at going
blind. When lye mixes with other stuff it gives off heat which makes it
dangerous to work with cause that could start an explosion. If you mix
it with aluminum such as in foil say then what happens is it makes
hydrogen gas which is very very explosive. You mix it with sugar and it
makes carbon monoxide another poisonous gas that people use when they
run the car in the garage and stay inside it to kill themselves.
Also because humid places can ruin lye you got to keep it in sealed air
tight containers because if the humidity gets to it thatll mess it up.
Now technically the lye isnt a part of the methamphetamine drug itself
its just used in the process of cooking crank but that doesnt make it
any less dangerous to work with.
