[QUOTE=GalGaillimh;2151500]I don’t think its possible to buy 100% alcohol in Ireland - They are probably afraid we will drink it! I tried to buy it to dilute perfume oils I bought in Egypt and they told me in the shop that it is unavailable.
I will find something though.[/QUOTE]
No it is not the alcohol you can drink I use the kind they sell in a hardware store but rubbing alcohol should also work (it is 70% alcohol and 30% water).
I use the 100% in a portable camp stove (as the water is not good for burning).
drinking alcohol is ethanol
the other alcohol is methanol
A good quality camera lens cleaning solution should also work.
