Potassium hydroxide (KOH), also known as caustic potash or potash lye, is a powerful, odorless, colorless base chemical. Sold in flake form for easy application, potassium hydroxide is produced by evaporating the water from liquid potassium hydroxide (LKOH). It also produces a significant amount of heat when dissolved in water.

It is useful for literally hundreds of applications, including the manufacture of soaps, biodiesel, batteries, fuel cells, beauty supplies, cleaners, and fertilizers. This product needs to be mixed carefully with the proper ingredients by a professional who understands how serious the effects of this chemical can be.
