Chuna is made to be edible, so it is not as harsh as the ingredients
would suggest. I'm not sure what it's used for, but chewing betel leaf
could be a possible option. And it's cheap to boot.

: : : Chuna is Calcium hydroxide, I believe.... like slaked lime.

: : Yes, and this seems to be doing something different. More

: It really would be nice to know if Chuna does different things under
: certain conditions or when certain ingredients are in the recipe or
: with certain colors of stain. Of course my problem with it would be
: that it seems like it would be a bit more harsh on the hands than I
: would want.
: But Erfan certainly obtained a beautiful color that is much lighter
: than the deep browns and near blacks obtained from Navaid 1 or 2.
: perhaps Chuna has possibilities other than to push the stain color
: dark or black. Perhaps, especially if the stain is already dark or
: black.
: Question for Erfan: Did the stain color continue to develop and
: become different over the next few days...Or did it remain that
