I bought something from Ebay advertised as a "plughole Cleaner, spirits of salt" as I had a problem with my bath discharging I thought I would give it a try. Useless as I expected "too dilute" but it clearly states on the bottle in bold letters "Not suitable for wash basins,baths,showers or kitchen sinks" I have to ask myself where else does one have a plughole.
Spirits of Salts is Hydrochloric Acid and usually works well for limescale and the like, but sink and bath drains are usually blocked with greasy deposits from soap/hair etc, and a Caustic Soda based product will usually work better.
Caustic Soda, a friend of mine used it to clean a toilet at a closed down hotel he was "looking after". A driver came to collect something and asked to use the toilet, he came out screaming that his cock was on fire and had to be doused with water and taken to hospital. you just have to laugh sometimes
Caustic Soda, now that is a nasty bit of stuff. A friend of mine was "looking after" a closed down hotel, he used it in abundance to clean a filthy toilet. A driver came to collect something and asked to use the loo, he came out screaming that his manhood was on fire and had to be doused with water and taken to A+E at the Hospital in his now soaking wet trousers. As I say *you just have to laugh sometimes *
It's very good for bleaching hair, a long long time ago I had to replace some side wall sheets at a chemical factory and told the manager that his gutters were leaking.
When we investigated further it was a caustic soda pipe that had developed a small leak and that had been dripping on me, had to go straight into a shower but by this time I had developed nice blond streaks in my hair.
Luckily it was light rain at the time and that had diluted the caustic soda but the clothes I had on just disintegrated inside of a week.
Spent six months of abuse from everyone that hairdresser was not very good at her job.
