That's my recollection too. I think it used to be called Tincture of Mecurochrome and stained ANYTHING pretty permanently. If you dispense a tiny bit on a paper towel, you'll know immediately. I haven't seen or heard of this stuff in many, many years.I wouldn't use it. It's Mercurochrome. You don't see it in the U.S. much any more. It was used as a topical antiseptic. It may contain alcohol and trace amounts of mercury.
Yeah that's what I was thinking. Didn't see Alcohol or Mercury in the ingredients. Although I am not sure if labeling regulations are the same in other countries.The ingredients list water, hydrogen peroxide, phosphoric acid and sodium salicylate as the components.
Mecurochrome might just be a brand/company name?
