Love it!

Great price and consistent product every single time! Never have encountered a dust problem with this product either. Just go slow while pouring it out, shaking a little at a time into your vessel. Also, I have never had a problem with my lye not melting completely in my water. Thanks Bramble Berry!

I used to use another brand of lye, but had inconsistent results (random volcanoes, little black specs...). I have enjoyed the consistency of this product.

There is no problem with this lye

I do not know what the other reviewers are talking about. Did they get a very dusty batch of lye? I have never had a problem in 5 years with this lye. Regarding the soapmaker that had undissolved lye, you would never pour undissolved lye in with your oils, would you?!! The flakes are much better than the static beads! I never have a mess with this lye.

Works well for me

Just purchased my 5th container now. I have no problem with it dissolving for me. I am very satisfied with the quality of this product and am so happy they have it in a form which minimizes the problem of static cling between the particles of lye! I think flakes are the way to go!

Flakes do not fully brake down

I make goats milk soap, is i mix my lye in an ice bath as to not to burn the lye. take these temps i could not get the flakes to fully brake down

Tina from Bramble Berry replies...
The larger flake form lye definitely does take longer to fully dissolve, especially with cooler temperatures. It does take some patience and pretty constant stirring. Normally though the last little leftover bits you see in the bottom is the anti-caking agent, not the actual lye. You want the lye fully dissolved though if there are a few little bits left it should not be a problem and can be strained out.
