I had a clog in my sink over the weekend. I poured in some Liquid Drano and "presto!" the clog was undone.
What is that stuff? Acid? If you poured some on your skin, would it just eat through? (I will not do this sober, by the way).
Seriously, is it just an acid that eats away at the stuff that clogs drains (e.g. hair, tissue, vermin, etc.?)
... and you definitely shouldn't put it on your arm. And never pour it onto alumninum foil (although there is aluminum in it).
it is a distillation of lawyers and the IRS. Others have said it was NyQuil...
Seriously, if you put the smallest, smallest dab of it on a toothbrush and proceeded to brush your teeth with it, would it serve as a teeth whitener?
You would, of course, spit it out and rinse, but would it work?
It would release hydrogen, which has a tendency to explode.
It probably would not whiten your teeth (more likely put microscopic holes in them which would become a haven for bacteria), and burn your gums, tongue and cheeks.
I guess what this is boiling down to is, it seems like as powerful as it is, there would be other helpful, beneficial ways to use Liquid Drano, no?
How about if you have coins that you left in your coffee cup holder in your car that got stuck together with old spilled coffee that hardened and now the coins are "glued" together? I know, run-on, horrible sentence. But if you dropped said coins in a cup of Liquid Drano, would it "unstick" the coins?
That would be a cool, beneficial and alternative use of Drano.
Or, how about as a stain remover for tough stains on metal?
Any other uses? (please refrain from telling EarlJam to drink a gallon and see what happens).
Remember the old movies (30's vintage, think Al Capone era) when the bad guys would pour acid in someone's eyes to torture them and make them talk? Well, if they poured acid in the eyes, the eyes could possibly recover. If they really wanted to blind someone, they would pour caustic in them, and the eyesight would be gone for good. A chemistry teacher told me that about 35+ years ago.
Please, EarlJam, don't try either at home.
Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

Try pouring some on your avatar so we can see what happens!
I used it once to try to dispose of an old dead rat in the alleyway behind my house where my kids used to play. I really do not know how old the rat was, but it seemed to me at least that it had been dead for a while, which is why the term "old."
Did it work? Not exactly. Did keep the kids in the backyard, however, small as it is.
I also used it once in diluted form to try to clean the rust off a kid's bicycle in preparation for a yard sale. Nope.
I have never tried it in a stuck drain. Plumbers say it only makes stuffed drains worse. True?
