Sweet Fire Starting. Sugar, Potasium Permanganate, and Water

Excerpt from One Hundred Ways to Make Fire without Matches . . . . . by PapaD Wright



Potassium Permanganate is highly regarded for its properties as a sanitizer, disinfectant, and water purifier. It is a dark purple crystalline powder that has long been included in military and civil defense first aid kits. It also makes a quick and easy chemical fire starter.

It is sold for cleaning fish tanks and for use in water purifiers. The last time I took notice, 5 lbs of PP costs about 30 bucks.
