The solution does not keep. I make as much as I need and discard the surplus.
For best results the solution should be acidified with a drop of sulphuric 
(Handle both these chemicals with extreme care and keep away from kids!)

To remove stains caused by potassium permananate, remove with a solution of 
sodium metabisulfite. This is a preservative that should be easily 
available at a grocery shop.
You can use it to clean your fingers of stains also!
