methylated spirits? what is it?
    #1076683 - 11/22/02 01:17 PM (15 years, 27 days ago)

hi! this site ( http://www.cactus-care.co.uk/index.html ) has a recipe for making an anti-mealy-bug remedy and one of it's ingredients is 'methylated spirits', findable in painting stores. please can someone help me to figure out what is it so that i can ask for it? is it a paint solvent? what's it used for? any of it's chemicals names would be welcome... or isnt it just methanol??? any term of it in spanish (portuguese better!) would help a lot! i just can't translate the term 'spirits', doesn't have an equivallent in portuguese.

Methylated spirits are a mixture of mostly ethanol with some added methanol....i think a 9:1 ration ethanol to methanol.......and maybe something else.....piridine maybe......and some color dyes so it can be sold without being taxed extra....its used as a solvent and a fuel for small stoves.......

hope i remembered all that correctly

It's funny.. rubbing alcohol is really hard to get here but methylated spirits can be bought at the supermarket.

cool, thank you guys for helping me out!
so do you think i can simply substitute the methylated spirits by a 9:1 ethanol/methanol mixture? i mean, the pirethrines (whatever) and dyes shouldn't contribute very much for the death of the bugs...
what if i use mineral oil (it smells like ammonia (amoniac?)) instead?
BTW, has anyone here used the link's recipe with success???
i just felt attracted because like it says there - i've tried many things and nothing has worked 100%. my most effective measure against the bugs is to spray a 1:1 solution of water/ethanol and picking them off the areoles...
