rubbing alcohol - D B COOPER - 11-10-2011

found a new kind of rubbing alcohol last night its green and smells like spearmint its 91%


RE: rubbing alcohol - Skeletor - 11-10-2011

I thought we were only supposed to use 99%?


RE: rubbing alcohol - MattNH - 11-10-2011

I use 91% 'Isopropyl' alcohol - it's the only one I can find in shops or chemists. I can report it works fine. Regards


RE: rubbing alcohol - Skeletor - 11-10-2011

What do you use it for? Just cleaning your head?

I have some lace remover from Debbie that says its 99% alcohol. Do you use it as lace remover?


RE: rubbing alcohol - MattNH - 11-10-2011

Yeah I just use it to clean the (possible) sweat/oils from my scalp before applying my taped hairpiece. My piece has a poly perimeter, I guess the lace wearers may use it as a remover. If that's what Deb sells it for then that's definitely the proper use....she's an expert mate. Regards

N.B I'm sure people will chime in, but I reckon an 8% increase in alcohol will make nil difference to however it's used. 91 - 99 can't be a big deal can it?!

99% removes the grime and glue etc easy but you cant buy 99% in the stores have to order online 91% works just as well, i use it to clean the hairline with a q-tip gently not to loosen the bond, where my c-22 citrus will detach my bond


RE: rubbing alcohol - Skeletor - 11-10-2011

Oh well that might be perfect for me then. So far the hairline is the biggest challenge. Hair keeps getting stuck in the glue, and using the glue remover pulls up my hairline attachment.

Thanks!

If you can get ahold of it easily 99% is the way to go, but 91% works just fine if you have trouble digging up some 99%.
