  • Approach question

    Rubbing alcohol in bulk has become hard to come by as of late. My question is can denatured alcohol be used if diluted with distilled water to clean synthetic approaches? Have never used it for anything....hence the question

    Not sure about denatured alcohol but since we can't find any 91% rubbing alcohol we are using acetone. Haven't had any problems finding it at the store.

        Been using denatured alcohol on synthetic approaches for years.
        No need to dilute with water, just use it straight.

          You still using the stuff? Your profile says you're up north of me, yet I understand the stuff is banned in California. I might be considering this depending on cost/availability.

            No denatured alcohol in California as of January 2020. We discovered this during our downtime when we couldn't buy any denatured alcohol to clean paint brushes etc.

              Not sure what name it has out your way but we use methylated spirits. Have been for at least 17 years on synthetic approaches.

                That doesnt mean we didnt stock up when we heard it was coming.
                We will probably go to 91 or 99% isopropyl alcohol when our supply is gone.

                  Okay, good. My reading comprehension hasn't failed me yet. Back in the Brunswick days we were using 99%, but we're currently using 70%. Just before the shutdown we tried to put in another order for the stuff, and it got canceled by the supplier. I put in another a few days ago, and the requisition was approved, but we'll see if we actually get it.

                      As do we; they're the ones who canceled our order back in March. We did get our order in... just in time for us to shut back down again.

                      Now, if Costco would stock it again, their pricing was about a third of what McMaster-Carr charges. Thing is, they sell it by the quart bottle.

                        We use 99% Isopropyl alcohol which we purchase from a chemical or janitorial supply house.
