Re: Denatured alcohol

From:Rande Kline <>


Make sure you are using alcohol that has been denatured with methanol and 
isopropyl which is known as Reagent Alcohol. Stay away from  alcohols 
denatured with hydrocarbons and ethyl acetate.

In my past life, I never used anything else but reagent alcohol and there 
was never a problem.
