Anyone know where I can buy LYE?

I think I remember reading that lye is used in the WVO filtering process. I need some to soak some things in to clean. Anyone know where this stuff might be readily available?

Aha! Red Devil has been discontinued (for lye, anyways). I discovered that I simply must find a crystal-style drain cleaner with Sodium Hydroxide as the main ingredient. Thanks!
