At first I thought it was just a cruel rumor. But after some google researching I've found it to be true.
Red Devil is no longer making their lye.
Two reasons seem to be given: it wasn't selling well and it is used in the making of meth
But now what? I was getting ready to try my hand at my first batch of CP soap soon. I have been reading and studying, but when I went to my local stores to find lye, guess what...it's gone!
So now what? I'm just starting this hobby, I don't want/can't afford to buy a large quantity of lye from the chemical stores. And buying online is looking like a nightmare with expensive hazardous material shipping and hazmat waivers that need to be faxed before purchase.
agggg! I'm discouraged and I haven't even started yet? And advice soapmakers?
