The video shows an easy way to make sodium hydroxide or lye at home

you will require

1.power supply or battery

2.wire

3.graphite electrode

4.container

5.common salt (NaCl)

6.Water

now follow the procedures in the video

Warning

The process must be done outdoors in a well ventilated area as chlorine gas is released which can be lethal

<p>wouldn't this just produce chlorates, hypochlorite, and perchlorates?</p><p>NaCl+H2O=H2+NaOCl</p><p>or:</p><p>NaCl+3H2O=3H2+NaClO3</p><p>or:</p><p>NaCl+4H2O=4H2+NaClO4</p>
<p>check this out</p><p><a href="http://www.gcsescience.com/pt11.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.gcsescience.com/pt11.htm</a></p>
<p>Chlorine, bad, hydrogen gas, worse- together:</p><p><em>&quot;Hydrogen gas forms explosive mixtures with air if it is 4&ndash;74% concentrated and with chlorine if it is 5&ndash;95% concentrated.&quot;</em></p><p>Just sayin'.</p>
<p>True,the process must be done outdoors in a well ventilated area to be more safe </p>
Great idea.
<p>Thanks</p>
<p>Cool idea! Thanks for sharing! </p>
