    I would like to know if there is a way to isolate potassium using household chemicals. If not, how is it obtained?

    Also how is cesium obtained/created? They are so reactive that it would be very difficult to incapsulate them in ice in the first place. How is it done?

    potasium(why is it called that?) can be aquired thruo electrolyse of any K contained salt in water.
    they are very reactive to water, other chemicals arent they as reactive with and can be stored in those
    i think

    Store them in mineral oil.
    You can obtain Cesium through electrolysis of Cesium Chloride forming molten balls, but its not very safe.

    It is somewhat of a waste to have pure potassium or cesium, but electrolysis is key.

    actually my view is you shouldnt have cesium at all.

    I dont and wouldnt want to get any cesium, i just can't figure out how they could capsulate it when it is so reactive to almost everything.

    Try Francium instead. the most freaking reactive element in the whole freaking world.... but that is if u can get ur hands onto some of the world's 2nd rarest element in the 1st place....
