Iodine Corrosion - Spillage in Booth of Car


I spilled some iodine (milking machine detergent) in the booth of my car - how do I stop it corroding - should I add some sort of potassium

May I suggest you visit Boots or any chemist (drug stores we call them over here) for some advice.

Whatever you do, PLEASE DON'T use any ammonia !

Ammonia and, well, iodine in crystal form would even give an IRA man something to think about! When dry, will explode even if caressed lightly with a feather.

Cheers !
