I used to use tons (literally) of this stuff everyday. Used to cost pence per litre, but I think tax is involved for domestic use.
As far as I know it's the active ingredient in screenwash-certainly smells like it- I think they get a lot of it from discards from chemical/pharmaceutical industry.

Great for cleaning windows but check with your Dr ?? Hahahahhaha

Just ice or need a mixer?

Anyone know what it tastes like

Quick tip...Isopropyl alcohol is great at getting pollen stains out of brand new carpet....useful if you have a dog whose wagging tail causes stuff to fly everywhere as I found out.

great as a panel wipe after correcting paint on a car. pretty cheap too and you can dilute to make it go further.

My brother has two litres of this he paid £10 for from a electronics supplies so how is this a deal?

He uses it to clean circuit boards and stuff like that.

Fake news as far as I'm aware, unless you're willing to actually prove your point with some proof.

Might have been credible if you'd got the price right.

out of curiosity, whats the other 0.1%?

Probably nothing, just 0.1 to cover themselves.

My brother used to buy it from a particular chemists in Acton West London, they'd sell big bottles for a fair price but now he gets it online for cheaper not sure where from, i have emailed him to ask

Thanks. Great heads-up. I'm gonna try diluting this to make a vinyl lp cleaner too

I'm sure there are cheaper ways to die

I'm quite tempted to buy one of those containers, in your second link, to make up my own winter screenwash. But If I did, I expect we would have another twenty years+ of mild winters. Maybe, for all our sakes, I should

Another vodka deal

Great with milk and a brown paper bag

This makes great vodka. All you need to do is remove the bitterant, and convert the propane to ethane. You can do this simply in a couple of steps, hrow it away then buy great vodka.

Good disinfectant when diluted and degreaser. I use a bit but have a big bottle of it I got locally for cheap

Standard price on eBay, so cold from me I'm afraid, but interesting to read the thread anyway.

Do you mean 8 pence. Sure it wasn't 5 pints?

Will this get rid of the smell in my automobiles washer bottle? There seems to be some green/ black gunk in it which I would presume is mould.

'Gift options not available' - darn! Aunty Maude swears by this stuff.

I think you can use a small amount of bleach then fill the rest with water then empty the bottle by disconnecting the hose or running the washers. Repeat until smell is gone

Nothing to see here. My company is. A manufacturer which uses tonnes at a time. We don't sell online but do so for callers at the door. In fairness, the price has rocketed in recent months but, if you contact a local company, chances are they will beat this.

So it's probably a deal if your interest is in something cheaper than you can buy elsewhere online. If you actually happen to want ipa, you probably know where to get it cheaper already.

Just don't touch Darrent.......

I don't understand how they can ship at that price. It costs me £15 to ship a few grams of non-hazardous solid chemicals rather than a litre of flammable liquid. Clearly not done according to regs.

I buy the same brand but 5L @ about £18 from Amazon - so not sure this is such a great deal. Sorry OP.

I use it to make record cleaning mixture, in case people wonder what I need 5L at a time for. Makes up 20% of the mix (along with the excellent deal on here for deionised water from Eurocarparts) and is enough for 1,000 or so records

Edit: Actually about 3,000 records (quick recalc in my head - I'm on my second 5L bottle)

I would recommend using chlorine (tablets)

Don't want to go all Mears/anorak/fried squirrel on you, but you can use this in those little Trangia type meth burners.

Much cheaper than meths if you get it from the right place.

Is that ok if the hose is rubber, i thought bleach caused rubber to perish?

One of the great uses which I don't think anyone has mentioned is wiping permenatnt pen marks. e.g. for those times when you use a Sharpie on whiteboard and everyone in the office hates you.

I don't think you would have any problem. Use only a mixture of bleach and water, leave it for an hour or so and then drain. Probably best to drain with out using the washers as if the gunk is thick enough it may float off and block your jets. If still bothered by smell, use white vinegar (not white wine vinegar) it may be called spirit vinegar. Again a mixture with water, and then put it through the jets. Great stuff white vinegar for getting rid of nasty niffs. Put it in a spray bottle (fine spray) and try it on anything smelly. Once your washer bottle is clean standard screenwash should keep it sanitised.
