KOH and NaOH are corrosive hazardous materials. It is illegal to ship them without a certified DOT number, without meeting very strict shipping criteria, and without having passed an annual certified Hazmat shipper exam. Due to these Hazmat regulations, all chemicals ship from Certified Lye and incur a Hazmat handling fee of $2.99 per package. The Soapmaking Studio does not ship Hazmat items.

16 oz Bag of Sodium Carbonate

1 pound of sodium carbonate (Na2CO3) powder in a resealable plastic zipper bag. Also called, "washing soda." Use in making fizzy bath bombs for a more stable product.

1 oz Bottle of Phenolphthalein Solution

1 ounce bottle of 5% phenolphthalein solution is more concentrated and more reliable than standard 1% solutions. This pH indicator is clear in the bottle. One drop can indicate the presence of free alkali by immediately changing to dark bright magenta in color. Bottle is sold sealed. Remove white cap and snip off end of clear tip with scissors to open. Replace white cap to prevent spills.
