Rubbish. Paraffin wax makes up the vast majority of candles, and it's what most people expect.

It is irresponsible. It is good advice not to store such things like that. Young children, for instance, won't know what caustic soda, garden chemicals etc. are, but may well know what a lemonade bottle looks like, and be able to undo the top. They will, of course, realise that something is wrong after a good swig.

Caustic soda also causes huge explosions in ng responses too :-) Intrestin' thread though. So say I buy some of this stuff and use it to clean the drains. how would I get rid of the unused amount? Tip it all down the drain? The message seems to be not to try and store this stuff in the first place.

Yes. Then add lots of water.

Its fine as it comes from the shop. In an airtigfht plastic container with a childproof lid and lots of orange poison and hazard signs on it. As a crystal.

Most of the talk has been on industrial quantities. You will not be needing that. If you buy it at a chemists or ironmongers you'll get it in a kilo or half kilo container in which it can be stored indefinitely. Use what you need according to the instructions and keep the rest sealed up safely away from children. The stuff can be dangerous but no more so than some oven cleaners.

Do you think you could separate this from your posting, like putting it in your sig or something ?
