What is Potassium Hydroxide?
Potassium hydroxide is an inorganic compound, commonly called by its chemical formula designation KOH or caustic potash. Along with sodium hydroxide, this colourless solid is a prototypical strong base. It has many industrial and niche applications, most of which exploit its corrosive nature and its reactivity toward acids.
Can Potassium Hydroxide be used for soaps?
The saponification of fats with KOH is used to prepare "potassium soaps,” which are softer than the more common sodium hydroxide-derived soaps. Because of their softness and greater solubility, potassium soaps require less water to liquefy, and can contain more cleaning agent than liquefied sodium soaps.
