Spring cleaning in the UK
    #4616007 - 09/03/05 12:44 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

A friend's aunt's old dog's previous owner was thinking of doing some serious spring cleaning.
However they can't find sources of some cleaning products that the yanks here keep mentioning, without going to industrial chemical suppliers.

Anybody know UK sources of -

Sodium Hydroxide
Naptha
Ammonium Hydroxide

Cheers guys.....

OK so Naptha is called White Spirit in the UK?

If so that's pretty easy to find, for cleaning my paint brushes! :biggrin:

Cheers Joe, that could have been bad! :foreheadslap:
Searching the net gave me a forum where several members thought this was the case!

Right, anyway the naptha shouldn't be too much of a problem then.

Sodium hydroxide is caustic soda, but the only suppliers i can find in the UK are soap making specialists. OK at a pinch but i'd rather walk into a hardware store or supermarket.

And i'm still at a loss for Ammonium Hydroxide.....

Ammonium Hydroxide - Ammonium Hydroxide ;D

Cheers 3six5,

Naptha - sorted.

Sodium Hydroxide - I don't think red devil is sold over here, or at least i have never seen it and can't find it.
All drain cleaners i have seen are bleach based.
I'd also rather not go to a specialist, although think a soap supplier is going to have to be it.

Ammonium hydroxide - still no sources i can find in the uk.
Anyone know shops or safe net suppliers in the uk?
Any brand names to look out for?

Thanks Loaded!

Am i being dim, but they really look like cleaning products!
The only stuff i can find on the site is natural oil based, and doesn't seem to contain the stuff i'm after.

They can order things seperately that aren't in the catalogue?

I wonder what they'd think of an email requesting these things?

Don't confuse cheat Ronson/Swan ligher fluid with the branded Zippo fluid. I didn't know it was 100% Naptha till just now but I do know that the zippo stuff is much much better than the cheap fluid.

Hope this helps

Cheers man, but it's a US site which only ships to a buisiness address.

Looking for UK, preferably shop product.

according to a bit of research I have just done, sodium hydroxide is better know in the UK as Caustic Soda. A common drain cleaner available from most hardware shops. I bought some a while back, from Wilko I think, could be wrong. It comes in bags and is a white rock crystal. I don't know anything about it really so don't take my word for it, do your research.

Cheers man.

Yeah i've been looking for caustic soda, but Wilkos doesn't stock it any more. I'll keep searching though!
