1L 99.99% Isopropyl Alcohol $8 (Was $9.95) Delivered or 3x Bottles for $19 @ Nayld eBay

940

Not as great as the 5L deal but great if you don't actually need 5L of it. 99.99% instead of 100% but I'm not sure if that makes much of a difference.

WARNING: This is poison, do not consume in any manner. According to the Betty Ford Center, drinking even a small amount of rubbing alcohol can have potentially fatal consequences. Keep away from children. Flammable, Keep away from heat, spark, electrical, fire or flame. Use only in a well-ventilated area; fumes may be harmful.

    Can never understand why Isocol, which is 75%,is about $11 for 345ml.

      Some places sell in a smaller spray bottle, a large part of the cost is the bottle which parts don't break down in alcohol.

      Would be good for Nayld to also have cheap spray bottle suitable for alcohol, so you could order a 5L and some spray bottles.

      Otherwise need to buy at Bunnings or Jaycar at inflated small bottle prices.

      You can decant into smaller bottles if used for rubbing purposes, problems with 99.9% pure is that it evaporates quickly so best to dilute with water e.g down to 70%.

        Just to add, if diluting with water (which I do at work to get a 50/50 mix for cleaning monitors and keyboards/telephones etc) then it's best to use distilled water rather than tap water if possible to avoid chemical residue etc. For day to day home domestic use probably doesn't make much of a difference.

      •  

        Was going to do that with the 5L bottle from last deal. Aside from the evaporation during pouring wouldn't it still last in small bottles?
        We've gota small existing spray bottle of 99% that hasn't all evaporated to nothing over the years sitting there.

      It's less. Isocol is 67.5% alcohol

    Do they have 70%

    I bought in the 5L deal without issue.

    Just saying, in case anyone is wondering how it went with those sales.

    I grabbed 2x 5L and they were delivered within the stated timeframe to WA which is a feat in itself.

        Delivery times for most of my eBay purchases from eBay have often proved extremely optimistic coming from the eastern states.
        Much of the mail comes by truck as opposed to planes although things seem to be improving somewhat.
        I can get deliveries from the UK quicker than from Sydney on average.
        So I'll leave you to ponder that whilst dipping your feet in the Iso. ;-)

      I couldn't find anything else in that eBay store to bump the price above $50 for the 10% off code to work. All the stuff in that store is like $11 nail polish, $15 makeup tabs. Just gave up on it altogether.

      •  

        Do you mean 'PLENTY10'? You don't need to buy from that store to reach $50. Anything on ebay will do as long as all the items are listed in the same currency (AUD).

        •  

          I added some $1 things from China and it didn't work. They were exactly 1AUD each though, so must have been AU pricing.

        •  

          @AustriaBargain: If they were only a dollar each you would have needed a lot of them to reach $50? There's supposed to be a limit of 10 items to use the coupon. Only thing I can think of. I just checked out with this along with 8 other items including some cheap stuff from China and an auction I won yesterday, and the coupon worked for me.

    What is the use of this product?

    • +5 votes

      I use it for cleaning surfaces before applying adhesives, removing tape/glue residue and cleaning a screen before applying a screen protector

      I dont think I've used more than about 200ml per decade of my life though! Note I'm applying it through a spray bottle with a fine mist. So I wonder what others are using it for.

        Cleaning vapes!

        Also useful for cleaning bongs - not that I use it for that.

        Works well for art work too!

        substitute for metho when cleaning, metho has other chemicals added to stop people drinking it , something to make it taste terrible I've been told, which also results in a slight residue after it eveporates, the 99.9% iso doesn't leave residue …the 0.1% is water it absorbs from atmosphere before being bottled.

      Cleaning electronics. It's good for removing flux.

    • +1 vote

      In addition to what others have said, it is also useful if you get water onto something electronic. You can pour the alcohol onto the electronics which displaces the water and then the alcohol safely evaporates off.

      I use it to sterilise surfaces like keyboard, mice, game controllers, remotes, etc. (I'm kind of a germophobe), clean heat sink compound off of cpu/gpus (uncommon but cheaper than the stuff a lot of companies sell in tiny bottles) , clean watches.

      •  

        Be careful on keyboards and remotes, it can remove the labels from keys/buttons on some items

    •  

      Add to t the already long list of uses, pretty useful to clean up residue after you compound or polish your car paint work. Usually polishes and compounds have a bit of oil in them. Useful to get them off before Waxing.

      Rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting pads typically contain a 60–70% solution of isopropyl alcohol in water. Water is required to open up membrane pores of bacteria, which acts as a gateway inside for isopropyl. A 75% v/v solution in water may be used as a hand sanitizer.

    Will this be good for cleaning keyboards / mouse and kitchen surfaces both wood, vinyl and plastic protectors with the vinyl surface near a gas stove aka open flame? Also ideas for toilet/sinks/toilet seats?

    Need something for cleaning around the house or should I just stick to soap and dishwashing liquid.

    Main concern is that it is 99.99% so not sure what this would be useful for straight out of the bottle and don't want to dilute it with anything around the house unless i have a spare safe container to use because the people here use random stuff for everything so potential for somebody to mistake it for cooking oil or even olive oil or something is very high potential.

    •  

      99% might evaporate too quickly to be used a disinfectant but would work decent in removing grease otherwise you would dilute it with water(some say distilled water but household cleaning, tap is fine) to 60-80% depending on your preference.

      You can get plastic bottles/spray quite cheaply from Reject Shop or Big W and just mark it or put a sticker to indicate it as cleaning tools. Alternatively, use an old table disinfectant bottle from Aldi, give a rinse with water and re-use it.

      I don't haven't this product but I have wipes for my phone and screen which are 70%, and it works amazing in removing grease and finger prints.

      •  

        Mainly wondering if it might be too strong or strong enough to remove stuff like maybe the back plastic or colouring from my keyboard and mouse while wiping it or if it might destroy my plastic cover for the dinner table.

        Also flammability issues.

        •  

          Flammable - the liquid is highly flammable but it does evaporate quickly when you're cleaning so risk of a fire isn't high but you still gotta be safe with any alcohol! Although they do use this stuff to clean circuit boards…

          Not sure about the plastic part, I have a Razer Deathadder mouse for about 10 years and it's only lost the plastic due to wear and tear. My replacement one for about 1.5 years, no issues. But can't make any guarantees on your specific items. Maybe some youtube videos might give you a better answer.

          I think if it has any sort of ink/paint then you might rub that off but if it's engraved they you should be okay. DOn't know how long this deal is for but if you have concerns, maybe pop into a bunnings and see what they say. I was recommended this video on youtube.

          Below is one of their items and MSDS attached. looks like it is >99% IPA. Bottle says it can be used on a variety of household goods.

          I am using some Fantech stuff.

          My keyboard is a Pantheon MK881 RGB.

          My mouse is a X4S Titan Macro Gaming Mouse.

          Just cleaning with water and a very tiny bit of liquid soap for now but I guess main thing would be something that can get rid of oils from my hands and fingers after long periods of usage.

          My guess is just general hand soap for now so am using that.

          I think I have some isocol isopropyl alcohol the gator brand one which I might use for my glasses every now and then.

          Wondering if that is also good for my monitor as scared to use anything but water for nwo on it in case it damages the screen somehow.

          Kitchen is just a wet cloth and some dishwashing soap.

        •  

          @AlienC:

          I don't like using soap because it can leave a soapy residue unless you wipe it again with water.

          Glasses cleaner does a great job for monitors, mouse and keyboard. I use it sometimes because it's easy to spray and use, but I do find I need to put a bit more effort in and the small bottle can be used up quite quickly but I guess they're free when I get new glasses so no complaints there.

          I would think it's safer because remember, they're cleaning glasses which will be sitting on your face - so there won't be a lot of chemicals added and glass is generally easier to clean compared to metal or monitors.

          As for the kitchen/toilet/bathroom, I just get a bottle of multiuse cleaning spray from Aldi. Last me a whole year for a few dollars.

          Which leaves me thinking, you might not need this product unless you're going for the strong disinfectant.

    Possibly better than the 5litre. ie. I have the 5 litre and it is very hard to pour out a small amount, so I end up overusing and wasting some.
    The 1 litre should be much easier to poor small amounts without spilling or accidentally tipping too much out.

    Spray this on Toilet paper before use.

    FYI you can mix and match this with other deal, ie 2x 1L + 1x 5L = $28.37.
    1x 1L + 2x 5L = $37.73

    Does this smell like Dettol?
    And to confirm, this is more concentrated than that?

    Good for removing thermal paste from laptop GPU / CPU? (Prior to reapplication)

    for greasy items, best to use turpentine first as it dissolves oil based gunk better, then clean reside with alcohol ….much quicker and easier than just trying to use alcohol.
