[*]Off, who is in his early 20s, threw sulphuric acid at a rival gang member at a party
[*]'I looked him in the eye, I 'douched' him in the face and the screaming started,' 
[*]His victim suffered third-degree burns and had to undergo numerous skin grafts
[*]His 'weapon' was a common domestic drain cleaner bought for a few pounds

Sodium hydroxide can dissolve bodies too. You wouldn't want it splashed in your face or eyes. And there are drain cleaners that have sulphuric acid in them.

name one...as far as I know there are not since there is a risk that they would dissolve the cement jointing in the sewerage pipes.

also the reason sodium hydroxide is used is that it specifically dissolves fat (turns it into soap)

What a Face

Yet another problem with buying strange/unknown products from somr internet sources...

One substance might be sourced from another country (in this case, a hazardous "drain cleaner" that contains 91% battery acid  !), and then onsold into a market where it often likely hasn't actually been approved for its nominated purpose..

I wonder if the relevent authorities (like said Water Boards..) are even aware of the problem  ?
