Default Re: Painted Cast Iron - Useable?

Its seems it depends on the state in which you live, as to the availability of lye. My experience in the Midwest has ranged from no problems purchasing it, or having to show an ID at most. Try Lowe's or any hardware store, and make sure you are buying pure sodium hydroxide. (I prefer the crystal) Remember, ALWAYS add lye TO water, not the other way around.
