looking for lye on St Croix
Hi i wanted to make homemade soap. would I be able to get lye on Island?
I'd check the older local hardware stores.
It used to be available in STT but haven't had a need so haven't looked for any lately.
I do have the need and checked every single hardware store on STT/STJ. It was pulled from the shelves a long time ago (nationwide) as it's an essential component of methamphetamine. Any product to be found which contains it is NOT what you need for soap-making.
Correction. My bad. Amazon supplies it as do other stateside suppliers but you can't get it shipped here via USPS or air. When I ordered it from Amazon I had it shipped to a trans-shipper stateside (a personal connection) from where it was shipped here by ocean container (which is legal). I do the same now with the bulk supplies I use. Sorry for the misinformation but, as I suggested in my PM, you may want to consider doing melt and pour soaps rather than CP and thus eliminate the need for lye.
