Our family used Drywite regualrly - as long as not soaked in it for too long no harm done. Chips were rinsed as well.
I grew up with it and eaten more than my fair share of chips

The Drywite liquid used to be very potent though = 1000x worse than smelling salts I reckon!

We fried in beef dripping as well, Craven Calvert's finest.................
