I keep getting people asking me what I think of using Glycerin & Potassium Permanganate as a fire starter. Since I've been doing videos on what I use for fire starters this fire starter mixture has really been coming up.

In this video I'll try to explain how I feel about this stuff. I used to carry Glycerin & Potassium Permanganate in my fire starter "Bag of Tricks", but lately I stopped it.

To be honest I think carrying an extra Bic lighter is better than using this stuff. I think it used on the TV shows because it looks like what I would of called in my younger days, FM. If you don't know what FM means just think of it as a close relative to "Freaking Magic"

This video is just my opinion,
Thank you for watching my videos,

The following is some info on Glycerin an Potassium Permanganate.
When glycerin is poured onto a pile Potassium Permanganate powder, the Potassium Permanganate sometimes will react very quickly, sometimes not. Have your supply of tinder close by, if not on top of the mixture, or you'll miss the flames.

I keep reading that Potassium Permanganate is a common chemical and can be found in first aid kits or hardware and pool supply stores. The only place I've ever found is at chemical supply houses or on eBay.

On the other hand Glycerin can be found at most drugstores or some hobby shops.

Info on Glycerin:
Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colorless, thick liquid which freezes to a gummy paste and which has a high boiling point.
Glycerin is hygroscopic, means it easily absorbs water from the surrounding air. Note: this might be why Glycerin & Potassium Permanganate mixture, as a fire starter, is next to useless in the rain.
Glycerin is a good solvent because lots of things will dissolve into glycerin easier than they do into water or alcohol.
Glycerin is used to make nitroglycerin, but it's not an explosive by itself.
Glycerin is also used to make clear soaps.
Glycerin is used alot in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and health and beauty products as a moisturizer.
I've read where athletes sometimes take glycerin as a method of staying hydrated in hot temperatures, to increase endurance.
I remember using it, when I was a kid, to preserve leaves to make a wreath.

Potassium Permanganate uses:
Water disinfectant
Disinfecting wounds and fungal infections
Emegency signals in snow or clear water.

Pros of using Potassium Permanganate:
Can be used for creating distress signals on snow
Can be used to disinfect, not purify, water.

Cons of using Potassium Permanganate:
Only works as fire starter when it is warm outside, needs to be around 60°F (15.5°C) or higher.
Flames from the Glycerin & Potassium Permanganate mixture do not last long.
It is next to useless in the rain.
It can be very dangerous and fatal, avoid direct contact with skin.
It stains, turns everything purple, including your skin. Takes sometime to wear off.
It decomposes when exposed to light.

Disinfect,not purify, water:
To disinfect water mix in just enough Potassium Permanganate to give it a light purple color. Let the mixture sit for an hour or two before you drink it.
This will disinfect water but not purify it. Potassium Permanganate will kill most bacteria, but if there were pollutants or bad chemicals present before you added Potassium Permanganate to your water they'll still be there afterwards.
