Caustic Soda

Does anyone remember Harpic toilet cleaner ?
It contains caustic soda. When I was about 6 years old I chugged down a whole bottle of the stuff, apparently because I thought it was similar to that sherbet stuff.
Anyway, up the hospital, tube down into stomach to pump it out. I didnt like that idea much so sunk my teeth into the tube.
Nurse slapped me hard round the chops, and when I opened my mouth to cry she shoved something in to stop me closing it again.  ;D
About 6 months later, I took a liking to Windolene and downed a bottle of that. so, up to the hospital etc. etc........... ;D

Just donít use it to dip Aluminium in, unless you want to dissolve the Aluminium.  ::)  ;D

When I worked at Hall's sweets I was after a big tub to soak something or other in caustic, we had a load of plastic tubs but I could only find an ally tub so used that.  ::) I filled the workshop with acrid fumes!  :-[

One of the chaps I did my apprenticeship with came up to me one day and told me he'd put his exhaust in the caustic tank to clean it. I said "I thought you had ally tips on your pipes. He said "Oh shit" and ran to the caustic room. It was too late, the strong concentration caustic had eaten his exhaust tips.  ;D
The MOD place where I worked had a anodising tank which was great for making ally motorcycle parts look bling. I had coloured anodised foot pegs and levers years before trick bits came out.   ;D  :y

I used to get called Harpic. Folk reckoned I was clean round the bend.
