Sodium Hydroxide is a very strong base, hydrophilic, highly reactive, and often used in harsher oven cleaners and in soap making. It can dissolve hair, grease, skin and could cause blindness. I would guess it can quickly damage wool carpeting with certain concentrations, although I have not personally verified this. Use with extreme care. I thought sawdust soaked in household ammonia, spread over carpeting, allowed to dry, then vacuumed up makes a lot sense. Something to that effect stated by Mr.B.

I know a lye when I see one.

Whatever the stuff is, you may be smoking too much of it.

If I found lye in my boots I'd give you the boots and the lye for free.

The Cotton Insurance Association? Why not check with the Nylon Insurance Association? If you put anything stronger than pH 10 on a nylon carpet, you'll void the warranty. NaOH is 14.

Sorry, just making sure you were awake.

Not nearly so scary as ammonia and sawdust.
