Lye is a liquid created by adding ash to water.

You put some fine white ash in the large brown bottle.
The fine white ash dissolves in the water to form some incredibly diluted lye.

"Incredibly diluted lye" looks like this:

This is a highly caustic yellow liquid used for making soap, about two tablespoons.  It's still incredibly diluted at the moment - perhaps letting it soak in more ash would make it stronger.

If you leave excess ash in the bottle with the incredibly diluted lye and wait a while  research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore. , it will turn into "very diluted lye", which looks like this:

...and "leached ash", which looks like this:

This is a large pile of leached ash, about two handfuls.  It looks like all the colour has been leached out of it.

Usage

It's currently unknown whether lye (of any concentration) can be used for anything.   research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out.

Unlike in real life, the "incredibly diluted lye" does not appear to be poisonous, nor does it damage you or have any other effect upon drinking it.
