Asked by AKSHAY Suresh | 27 Jan, 2012, 05:37: AM
Expert Answer
Lye is a caustic, alkaline chemical that is useful for many purposes but also is hazardous. It can dissolve sticky substances such as fat and has a high degree of reactivity with other materials. Modern lye typically is the chemical sodium hydroxide, but potassium hydroxide was once the chemical compound that was commonly used.Despite its hazardous nature, it is used in many common household products.
