Buy Potassium Nitrate

Updated on October 26, 2014

Potassium Nitrate For Your Homemade Smoke Grenade

I have received many questions lately asking where people can buy potassium nitrate for their homemade smoke grenades. I hope to answer that question by writing this page.

This product is widely available over-the-counter in the United States from most major retailers such as Wal-Mart or Sears in their gardening department.

If you do not have access to these types of stores, your next best bet is to purchase potassium nitrate from an online retailer. In my opinion, Amazon is the best pace to buy potassium nitrate. Amazon has many different sizes and brands to choose from.

If you do not want to purchase Potassium Nitrate from Amazon, there are other alternatives you may pursue. However, many of these companies are located overseas and require payment through Western Union or other money transfer companies.

You take your own chances when you order from overseas.

How To Make Potassium Nitrate

If you need potassium nitrate you do not have to buy it all the time. Just for fun, you can make it from simple products that you probably have at home right now.

This is by no means a cost effective method of obtaining potassium nitrate, but it is something that you may want to try one day in the name of science..
