Lye-water from my ashes!!

Its a couple of weeks ago, I decided to give it one more try to make my own KOH (Kalium Hydroxide) water to use it for making soap or cleaning.
So you can see the procedure:
(Utensils: only stainless steel pots and spoons, soft water from rain, snow or distilled, ashes from hardwood, filters, googles, gloves. )

is is a weak lye solution.
Boil it up to a strong lye solution, by boiling it to the 1/4 of its volume. Your solution is ready when small white crystals form in the bottom of your pot. Wear googles!!! And gloves!!
Store in well-labeled glass bottles, and keep somewhere dark and chill.
