Peter - Potassium Permanganate KMn04 should be available from any
pharmacy / drug store. It consists of purple crystals which can also be
used as a mild disinfectant. It used to be popular for sore feet, except
that it turns the skin a disgusting shade of brown for days afterwards.
You can also use a few crystals to purify drinking water - just enough to
turn the water a pale pink colour - although the taste is not brilliant.
In higher concentrations the stuff is poisonous ( then so is bleach)
