I’ve searched and found some who have tried it, but no mention about a mixture. I bought 6 1lb bottls from Menards and 2 5gal buckets. So far I’ve mixed 1 complete bottle of Lye to 2 gals room temp water. I’m soaking some rusty calipers. After reading my search results, I’m going to take these apart, and blast them. What is a good ratio for Lye? I don’t want to go to far and end up with mustard gas or anything.
