    WARNINGS & DISCLAIMER: The methods of using Potassium Permanganate described above should only be practiced in emergency, survival situations.

    Before using Potassium Permanganate for medicinal purposes, ask your doctor if possible.

    In a survival kit, store the potassium permanganate and glycerin in separate compartments or away from each other to avoid an accidental combustion of these two items if these containers break and spill.

    Potassium permanganate should be handled with great care. It is a strong oxidizing substance that should not be exposed to a flame. Keep potassium permanganate away from concentrated sulfuric acid because it can cause an explosive reaction. In its pure form, potassium permanganate is toxic and can cause eye and skin irritations. It should not be inhaled or directly ingested.

    Potassium permanganate is caustic, and concentrated solutions can burn skin. Make sure you fully dissolve the original material before applying it, and only use highly-diluted preparations. Applying a potassium permanganate solution repeatedly also can lead to skin irritation and burns. If any potassium permanganate solution gets in your eyes, it can cause cause irritation, redness and pain. Flush immediately with clean water.

    If you have skin contact with undiluted potassium permanganate, flush your skin with water for at least 15 minutes, if irritation persists, get medical attention. If the substance is on clothing and shoes, remove these items, and wash your clothes and clean the shoes before wearing again. If undiluted potassium permanganate touches your eyes, immediately flush them with water for at least 15 minutes, and then get medical attention.

    Ingesting potassium permanganate can be life-threatening, particularly in high concentrations. It causes gastrointestinal distress and possible burning, throat swelling that can result in suffocation, and it can lead to shock reactions and kidney damage. Even in concentrations as low as 1 percent, ingesting potassium permanganate can cause throat burning, abdominal pain and nausea. If you or someone else has swallowed any potassium permanganate, do not induce vomiting unless medical personnel instructs you to do so, and seek immediate medical attention.

    Although potassium permanganate is not flammable, it increases the flammability of other combustible materials. Potassium permanganate in a fire can release toxic fumes in addition to skin irritant chemicals. Because potassium permanganate is very toxic to aquatic organisms, water used for extinguishing the fire should be collected and disposed of as contaminated material, rather than dumped into drains, soil or water sources. Absorb any liquid with a non-combustible material, such as sand or dirt. This is also a consideration when cleaning up a leak or a spill.

    I (and all sources used in this article) will accept no responsibility for accidents , health damage, illegal use, or property damage as a result of reading this article or the applying of methods described herein.

    Stay safe out there.

      Just thought I'd add some more useful info to this great article. When using as a firestarter you can use most glycol-based products in place of glycerine if you don't have any. This includes most brake fluids as well as some anti-freeze and other automotive fluids and additives you might have in your car if you break down.
