Not a lot about, people using it for hand cleaning, but 99.9% and 90% are still listed on Amazon.

It's sometimes listed as rubbing alcohol.  Try mixing it with aloe vera gel to make hand sanitizer - bound to be a recipe on the net somewhere.

Loads on eBay but lots of scams too
Check feedback and check stock is in UK
Prices have gone up significantly, if it looks cheap itís most likely a Chinese scammer

Thanks guys.


I should have mentioned earlier that it is for use in circuit board repairs in computers so has to be non conductive.   The usual supplier has none so I thought Ii would ask here.

Look here.


https://www.fasttrackchemicals.com/product-page/isopropyl-alcohol-pure-isopropanol-ipa-pharma


I use this company quite a lot, excellent quality, genuine products. 99.9% pure IPA (Pharma). 1ltr  £6.99.


Don't know how their prices compare, but, better the Devil you know.
