they sell it at every grocey store i've ever been to. And if you really need to use an alt. i would use the bleach. But i still dont understand how you cannot find rubbing alcohol....

Did you ask?
I guarantee that any pharmacy has Isopropanol and/or denatured ethanol (also known as methylated spirits in some places, although here that is a different mix).

Denatured alcohol is often sold at paint stores as a shellac thinner. Ask the guy at the paint store where he keeps the alcohol-based shellac thinner.

Most vodka is 40% alcohol at best and way too expensive.

i looked on the internet and it said methylated spirits is denat. alcohol or grain alcohol or something with additives and dye so you know not to drink it.
