Dakin's solution - Definition


Definition


Dakin's solution is a lotion that has antiseptic properties. It is pink in color, has a similar odor to bleach, and is generally used for cleaning wounds and mucosa. This solution was created during the First World War as a means of disinfecting soldiers' wounds. It is created from diluted bleach, or sodium hypochlorite, and potassium pomanganate, and must be stored out of direct sunlight due to its short expiry date of 7 days following opening.
