Caustic Soda

(1/3) > >>

Mr Skrunts:
There was a thread not so long ago regards removing oil from a drive. (I searched but could not find it)

So today I came accros some Caustic Soda in a container looking a bit worse for wear.  I was going to dump it but decided to look up its uses.  (we used to use it a lot at work (Food Factory) with boiling water to clean the concrete floors.

So Googled it.

CLEANING & SANITIZING (dustbins, kennels, stables, driveways etc) Add 1-2 tablespoons of Caustic Soda per 5 litres of water. Scrub soiled area with solution, then wash down thoroughly with water. Removes oil and soot. PAINT STRIPPING Add 250g Caustic Soda to 1 litre of cold water.

Sorry if it was mentioned in the OP but the bit about the paint stipping was also  interesting.

our cleaners use caustic too for cleaning through pipework & sauce filler bowls etc ..... all contained system (apart from where it leaks!  ::))

I used to use caustic soda to clean the exhaust baffles on my Two Stroke Moto X bike. Obviously Iíd remove the baffles from the exhaust first.  :y
Just donít use it to dip Aluminium in, unless you want to dissolve the Aluminium.  ::)  ;D

Ditto. The exhaust would get quite hot. I'd also stick the end of the 'zorst' into a big spud to stop the contents coming out. :)

Seemed a good idea at the time. :)
