Hi, I had actually posted this for my Philippino friend. She said it is something they use in the Philippines for cooking with! Think she has the word wrong because as you rightly pointed out it is a rather nasty and poisonous substance. So if anyone has any ideas of a similar sounding word that is a Philippino cooking ingredient I would appreciate the info!

Lye is a generic term for caustic. Are you after caustic soda or caustic pottash?

Have you tried searching for drain cleaner which is usually caustic soda or searching using the chemical symbols NaOH or KOH?
