It's just as easy to use lard for a lot of things. I still want Lye from hardwood ash and glycerin. Compost bins. Leech compost for potassium nitrate, Leech hardwood ash for lye, use lye on fat, cook, scrape glycerin from soap add potassium nitrate, glycerin and sawdust to get the poor man's dynamite (e.g primitive explosives).
I mention specific chemicals and while such chemicals could be reduxed out of the leeching it's much more practical to just boil off a bit and add the concentrated leech-water to the sawdust,. Safer too, because the sawdust will be active and very dangerous when dry.there should be a Dex/2=Q requirement for handling.
Well what is this that I can't see
With ice cold hands takin' hold of me
Well I am death, none can excel
