IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE! Sodium hydroxide is a strong base, and even when dissolved in water for this recipe, it’s very concentrated and has an extremely high pH. This means that if you get it on your skin or in your eyes it will hurt, and if you leave it for too long, it can cause permanent damage. Additionally, dissolving sodium hydroxide in water generates a lot of heat.
