Rubbing Alcohol - Does It Need To Be Diluted? * 1
    #9583585 - 01/10/09 04:44 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Hi,

I've done a lot of searches but not found an answer to my question so hopefully someone can help me out.

I've got Surgical Spirit (which is the same as rubbing alcohol apparently). I've only got a 200ml bottle, I was just wondering are you supposed to use it pure, or should it be diluted?


Thanks for any help

What are you using it for? I just use 70% isopropyl alocohol straight out of the bottle and wipe it over everything.

It says its %95 methylated spirit, so I'm guessing its %95? And just using it to wipe things down like gloves/tyvek sleeves for use in my glovebox.

So I'm presuming I don't dilute?


Thanks for the replies

dont use that, that's the wrong kind. thats EXTREMELY flamable. that's not rubbing alcohol.

what you have is 'denatured alcohol' , it can be used as fuel for an alcohol burner, but deff not for other stuff, too dangerous

You can use that if you want.  Add about 30% distilled water by volume to it for best results.  91% iso alcohol is not as effective as 70%, which is what you want for sanitizing tables, gloves, tools, etc.  Use the higher concentration alcohol, preferably denatured alcohol for your flame sterilization lamps.

Thanks for the help. So would the surgical spirit that I have be okay to use (without being diluted) for the home-made alcohol lamp shown here: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum2&Number=1435871&fpart=1&PHPSESSID= ?


Does anyone know what the 70% alcohol is referred to as in the UK? I thought that surgical spirit was the UK equivalent of rubbing alcohol...

yeah, I use that for my alcohol lamp, it works very well as a fuel source.

i'm not sure what it's called in the UK. try asking for:
isopropyl rubbing alcohol
or
first aid antiseptic?

i'm not sure, sorry

You use the alcohol you have and dilute it down to 70%, it would be a waste to buy pre-diluted alcohol, when you already have it.

To dilute 91% to 70%, add 21% distilled water.
