when finalising water preparations for my pond I added pptassium of permanganate. It turns the water purple as a side product.
I noticed my hands turned purple........almost covered my face in my efforts to be a clown. (Not the thing now but I aped a black and white minstrel). Joke over I tried to wash my hands. Nothing worked......scrubbing, domestic chemicals, etc. all failed to remove the purple. Took a few days to gradually disappear. So glad I didnt cover my face
