      Potassium Permanganate Stains

      "Dear

      This is a really short message. Have you ever used Potassium Permanganate and gotten it on your hands and had those dark brown stains that won't go? Home Depot (and lots of other places) sells 'Super Iron Out' or plain 'Iron Out' which is a rust stain remover. Urban legend has it on good authority that this will remove potassium stains.
      I just thought you might like to know.

      FYI guys,

      We have a cleaner product called "Goo-Gone" that works. It's an orange oil based product I get at Lowes. Works great for a wide range of cleaning...

      I use 3% hydrogen peroxide to immediately remove PP stains from skin, extremely effective, cheap, works swell.
      Still working at a big chemical plant full time at age 74 now. Still using potassium permanganate to regularly clean up the pond and the koi.
