you want isopropyl alcohol. Foud in any pharmacy section of any store usually. Rated around 93% to 96% alcohol.

Isopropanol is not ideal since the fumes can sting the eyes. If you do want to use "rubbing" alcohol, get over 70% or it won't burn very well.

Go to the paint supply section of any Walmart type store and look for ethanol in the thinner and solvent area. You know its the right stuff when it says it can be used as a fuel on the can.

Yeah, I tried normal pharmacy 70% isopropanol and it just didn't burn well.

So in a pinch I created a lamp out of a zippo and silly putty. Besides the smell, that works pretty well.

**oh, and the carbon deposits if you flame too long

The above information is complete fiction.

rubbing alcohol (high percentages (97%)) works fine. denatured alcohol is a good choice too--burns quite clean. you'll find it in the hardward store paint section.
