My mail order lye arrived yesterday. Bottom line: it was 16 oz of "100% Lye Drain Cleaner." I don't mind the price (two bucks) but the "shipping weight" of 12 pounds was a flat out lie of grotesque proportions. It arrived wrapped in a hank of bubble wrap and accompanied by a plastic air pillow in a USPS "flat rate envelope."
I'm going to post an Amazon review saying that the shipping weight is beef by-product and the shipping cost is unconscionable. What do they think this is? eBay?
