Safety Precautions When Working With Lye

Lye is a caustic and dangerous chemical, so it is important to take safety precautions when working with it. Here are some safety precautions to follow when working with lye:

  1. Wear protective gear: Always wear gloves, goggles, and a mask when working with lye to protect your skin, eyes, and respiratory system from potential harm.
  2. Work in a well-ventilated area: Lye can produce harmful fumes, so it is important to work in a well-ventilated area, such as outdoors or in a well-ventilated room.
  3. Use heat-safe containers: Lye can react with certain materials, such as aluminum and certain types of plastic. Use heat-safe containers, such as stainless steel, tempered glass, or heat-resistant plastic, to mix your lye solution.
  4. Add lye to water, not water to lye: When mixing lye, always add it to water, never the other way around. This helps to prevent the mixture from becoming too hot and potentially splashing or boiling over.
  5. Use caution when handling lye solution: Lye solution can cause burns and skin damage, so it is important to use caution when handling it. Avoid splashing, spilling, or touching the solution with your bare skin.
  6. Clean up spills immediately: If you spill lye solution, clean it up immediately with plenty of water and a clean-up agent, such as vinegar or citric acid.

By following these safety precautions, you can work with lye safely and effectively in your soap making process.
