"A must have! "
COMMENTS:  I recently started making liquid soap, but that's not why I ordered this. I like to use an 80/20 sodium hydroxide/potassium hydroxide mix in cold process soap. I read somewhere that using a small percentage of potassium hydroxide in cold process helps to produce more lather, and I have noticed a difference! It can make a slightly softer soap, so I use a steep water discount and superfat at 3-4%. I also use more shea butter and add either soft and silky e-wax or btms 25, and let the bars cure for several months. The bars are amazing, and work great for solid shampoo and beard wash!

"Does the Job without Problems"

"No Static"
COMMENTS:  I like the flake form of lye (either kind) because of the low chance of static electricity causing it to cling to everything and bounce off of surfaces. If you work with lye, you understand how that can be very, very dangerous... This has been easy to pour, measure and weigh out and has performed beautifully in my hot process liquid Castile soap and also my shave soap recipe.

"Better than the beads!"
COMMENTS:  I love these flakes so much better than the micro beads! I purchased those from another supplier and didn't realize there was a difference until I read more about it. The little beads have way too much static and make pouring/clean-up a HUGE pain! I tried using that type one time, and that was enough. I immediately bought the flakes from WSP.

COMMENTS:  This is my go-to source for KOH. Good quality, in easy-to-handle containers. The ink color on the plastic container is a different color than the similarly-packaged sodium hydroxide, so it's easy to tell the difference between the two.

"Making liquid soap"
COMMENTS:  Bought potassium hydroxide to learn to make liquid soap from scratch. I cannot tell you the fun I had making the soap. It is a hot processed soap that is used in the recipe very similar to how sodium hydroxide is used. The same safety precautions and safety tools are a necessity, but the finished product is so worth the purchase. Wholesale Supplies Plus information page is a great place to start to think about making liquid soap: http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/education/how-to-make/Learn-to-Make-Liquid-Soap-From-Scratch.aspx

"Only place on the net w hassle free shipping. "
COMMENTS:  I looked all over the internet for a reasonably priced potassium hydroxide. after hundreds of hours I came across wholesale supplies plus. The cost of shipping the potassium hydroxide did not outweigh the benefit of getting it through them my shipping cost did not increase. It came packaged as the picture says also it came packaged in a clear ziplock bag. and also came clearly marked with all the warnings and everything as seen in the photo. currently it shows out of stock but I would definitely wait for the two pound potassium hydroxide if you need smaller quantities. if you are having second thoughts about purchasing this item through wholesale supplies plus please do not think twice about it this will be my go to place for potassium hydroxide in the future.
