The satisfying scent of dissolving human hair and old flesh matter down the bath plug hole?  Why, that's HD's Caustic Soda / Sodium Hydroxide Industrial Grade Strong Drain Opener, Dennis.

Yes. Used some of that in a shower drain as a student once and I could HEAR it burning the hair and assorted gunge and crap away.

Coal tar soap, the proper stuff, not Wright's tea tree oil bollocks. Smells like harsh chemicals, must be doing it right.

Has anyone tried that weird 'German engineering. For your hair!' stuff with caffeine in it for some reason?

Should I put some nescafe in my hair?
I was  given some of this stuff. It doesn't make your hair grow back, but it adds volume to what you've got left. Strong Tony Hart/Ken Barlow vibes.

Though before anyone uses caustic soda (which is fucking good stuff) check your pipes as that stuff burns through plastic. This is speaking from experience, sadly.

Knew a guy who used it, was tempted to put Veet in it

Sounds like our old friend Euthymol:

It could have been that actually. Or Germoline.

I'm not a fan of mint flavouring. Has anyone had a non minty toothpaste before? I tried one once and it was like brushing your teeth with a fishermans friend picked out the dirt.
You used to be able to get fennel-flavoured toothpaste from health-food/hippie shops. American, I think. I went out with a goth who used it.

I know a guy more closely involved in the drug scene and he says that cocaine smells 'mental'.

Went out to get some soap as the shortages were kicking in around this time last year and came home with a 4-pack of Wright's Coal Tar as it was all I could find. The kitchen immediately stank of antiseptic and still does, because we're still only on the fourth bar, the stuff just does not seem to wear away.

Raw cocaine or the finished product more cut up than a goths wrist?

Really? I thought caustic soda was in those oven cleaning kits where you put the bags in a rack. They tell you to pour it down the sink.

Well, these were the crystals you can buy in tubs from hardware store and dilute in water. All I know is, either the pipes were made of paper, or caustic soda fucks up plastic pipes in certain circumstances. We were using fair quantities as it didn't seem to be clearing the blockage in the bath*. When I'd used the stuff first time out, it had worked a treat unclogging fat from a narrow metal pipe leading down the sink to the drains outside the flat.


*it was a clusterfuck of poor, faulty and fundamentally flawed design of the pipework in the bathroom as well as issues with the exterior piping outside that contributed. The blockages were insane, and haven't been repeated anywhere I've lived since. Naturally, the landlord blamed us rather than listening to the 6 seperate plumbers called out (who to be fair each only partly diagnosed the problem)

Caustic soda deffo melts pipes if you put a lot of it down the sink. I used to know the safe dilution but as if that information was worth retaining.

When I was a kid I once turned around quick while me mum was doing the polishing and got a gobfull of Mr Sheen.

The taste was really making me nauseous so following small child logic I thought if I licked the coffee table that was recently cleaned with the same product it would get rid of it.

It didn't. My mouth tasted like Willy Rushton's handwriting for days after.

My dad always insisted on non-flouride toothpaste. He reckoned since they were putting it in the water that was enough. Boots still make it.

Does floridosis go away? I remember some people at school having chalky teeth but I can't mind seeing it in an adult, but thinking about it I moved away from midlands/severn trent water which I think might be more processed, especially as they added birmingham to the water network and that comes all the way from wales rather than a river.

Original Source shower gel, the mint one specifically. My go-to shower accompaniment for those times I need a freezing menthol arsecrack and ballbag.

I had a similar experience after accidentally eating some Winalot. My mouth tasted of Clement Freud's (Barry - snip!)

The fuel I'd use driving to Aldi would far out weigh that. Cheers though.
