In this episode, we are joined by Jessica of First Saturday Lime. A family business started by her dad, Jessica now runs the business with her sister.

First Saturday Lime is different. Some lime (hydrated lime, calcium oxide, calcium hydroxide) can burn skin, and other lime (dolomitic, straight out of the quarry) isn’t very strong. First Saturday Lime came up with a formulated version of hydrated lime, which is just as strong as other types of lime, but safer. It lacks the caustic nature of hydrated lime, while also containing virtually no silica as in dolomitic lime. It is safe for all animals, including cats, and safe to handle with bare skin.
