Quick lime is dusty and also a health hazard. (Google "Is quicklime dangerous?") If you get it in your eyes , it can blind you and there is really no other use for it onboard.
I have used just lime (not quick lime), it works without the health issues and is cheap- buy a large bag at the hardware store.
