Hey guys i dont want to use the expensive kalkwasser anymore.

Can i go to any chemist and ask him if he sells slaked lime, is there some kind of brand name on the chemist market that i should look for or is it called slaked lime?(calcium hidrokside)

Will dischem or varma value stock it?

Thanks guys

Lanzo you need to go to the BIG chains, the corner chemist won't even know what you talking about.

Dischem is my preference, they sell Kalk, and BiCarb

R4 for 50g, I normally buy everything that is available 20 boxes at a time.
