The kids had produced significant amounts of pencil shavings over the last weeks, so yesterday we boiled them with some soda and made new paper. Good enough to draw upon, even. \o/

Didn't bleach it (so the background is actually pretty gray), but the phone adjusted the white-point.

@drahflow cool! the NaOH (drain cleaner) soda or the Na2CO3 (baking powder) soda?

@drahflow oh, TIL… wait, let me rephrase that… The NaOH (drain cleaner) soda, the Na2CO3 (washing detergent) soda, the NaHCO3 (baking powder) soda, or the Na2O (glassmaking… okay, unlikely) soda?

@daniel_bohrer NaHCO3, but Wikipedia gives 2 NaHCO3 --> Na2CO3 + CO2 + H2O as spontaneous reaction above 50C. So same as washing detergent at our process temperature.
