Drano uses?


A neighbor has left dozens of drano containers in their yard, does anyone know what they might be up to?

NaOH is a component of the "shake and bake" meth production method.
Or maybe they're dissolving some corpses.




As below, so above.

I'd have to see the bottles. Are they liquid bottles or are they powder bottles? I know of about 5 different drano formulas and it would really depend on which product it is as to what it could be used for. It could be something as simple as making soap, engine degreasing or lots of other things. It's also possible it's H2O2 as they have/had that as a "green" product for a while, and that could be used for a lot of things as well.

Can you describe the size, shape and color of the bottle? Try to find a picture online that matches it, shouldn't be hard.

I wouldn't jump to the meth conclusion without seeing any containers of other chemicals used in its production.

My vote is for soap and/or biodiesel.

Maybe they are an amateur chemist using the NaOH to make a lot of concetrated sodium hypochlorite for haloform reactions and the likes.
Or maybe they are upscaling nurdrages method for making a lifetime supply of sodium metal.




Sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from madness.

This.
My original thought was that they tried to unclog a drain multiple times without any luck, or were thinking "forget the directions, more must be better". But deathunter88's suggestion seems more probable, IMO. I can't imagine drug cooks or general hobby chemists working on such a scale.

No one has even mentioned that it could be H2SO4, which is a distinct possibility. If it is this, then maybe he's using it for what others here use it for.

Perhaps they're using it to hydrolise fats they steal from liposuction clinics to make expensive custom soaps so they can sell rich people's fat back to them at a huge profit and are then using the leftover glycerine to make nitro so they can use it to blow up every bank and large financial institution in town.

Or maybe they're making a big batch of lutefisk.

Drano does not use sulfuric acid in any if its drain cleaner formulas.

Yup, I sure did.
Haven't seen that movie in many years, but I have been meaning to get a copy and watch it again.

Some guy borrowed my copy.
I think his name was Robert Paulson...
