Hillbilly hand sanitizer


I was reading online that they recommend 80% alcohol in hand sanitizer but I found that most of the hand sanitizer sold here is below 60% so I looked at metho it’s 95% ethyl alcohol and 5% methyl alcohol. I looked online and some people are mixing it with other things and using it as a hand sanitizer. I’m using it straight.

My point is hand sanitizer is hard to find and metho is really available, cheaper and stronger also great for wiping down door and fridge handles.

Tried to buy isopropyl

Tried to buy isopropyl alcohol yesterday. Bunnings have been cleaned out and are rationing product. In fact I heard yesterday Bunnings NZ is closed to the general public and trade only now. Anyhow, other retail outlets I tried are out of it too. I tried a trade only chemical suppler that I buy chemicals from and he is completely out. He is expecting resupply by the end of may.

METHO is a hell of a lot

METHO is a hell of a lot cheaper boys


If you are referring to

If you are referring to methanol, be very careful, because it's quite toxic

Metho = methylated spirits

Its ethanol with a few additives to make it unpalatable!
