Forms permanent brown/black stains on skin. Silver nitrate stains on clothing can almost always be removed by the use of Spray N' Wash, which is obtainable in the laundry products section of your local grocery store. To remove silver nitrate stains on skin, glassware, or lab equipment use the gentle, but effective, Erada-Stain cream (Catalog No. AP7330). Due to the significant increase in prices of precious metals, you will notice that several related chemical prices in the current Flinn Chemical Catalog Reference Manual have also gone up in price. Flinn Scientific has done and will continue to do everything we can to keep the costs affordable for our customers in order to mitigate the potential effect on teachers' favorite lab activities and on chemistry education in general.
