    I bought this same brand a while back and I'm not sure how pure it is. Takes much longer to evaporate than the previous stuff I had. Not sure it's electronics safe.

    • drop an alcometer in there

    • Interested in impressions from others on this? Running out of my 100% from Sydney solvents which has been great.

      Keen to get this if it's genuinely pure isopropyl but not if it leaves a residue

    • Fine for me. Sure it’s not the 70% version they sell?

    • +3

      Agreed.

      I discussed this last time this deal came up, but that type of container should not allow them to package 100% Isopropanol, because unless the whole facility is in a vacuum, it'll have some moisture content from the air (hygroscopic).

      If they'd claimed 99.7%, I'd have believed them, as it's the most pure I can order from a chemical supplier without paying HUGE fees for vacuum seals.
      But 100% at that price? That last 0.3% costs a fortune to refine.

  • I think I bought 2 litres for 19 on ebay delivered figured 5 litres would be too much and last me too long.

  • Yeah, not so sure for the shaver cleaner. We have a braun shaver and we had two foils fall apart, and then the shaver stopped working, when we started using our own mixture. Might be a coincidence but we didn’t have troubles before this and haven’t had troubles since with the new one on the real cleaner.

    • I've been making my own for Braun shavers for years with no issues

      • You got a recipe please.

          This is the one I use, I think. It's pretty easy.

          Shaver cleaner (Makes 1019mls, 6 x 170ml cartridges refills)

          Ingredients

          95% Isopropyl alcohol - 950 ml

          Distilled water - 60ml

          Baby oil - 2ml

          Clear liquid shampoo - 12 drops

          Lemon essential oil - 7ml

          Few drops of food colouring


          Add lemon oil & baby oil to methylated spirits (tip 50ml out first) mix by shaking until it is well mixed.

          In another container mix shampoo with lukewarm water. Slowly add water/shampoo mix to ethanol mix keeping the new mix clear (it may go cloudy for a brief moment then back to clear)

          • @mickeyjuiceman: Unless you're a chemist, I don't know how you stumbled upon such a complex formula. What a legend.

            • @teajay74: I got it from the web somewhere, and modified it a little. Seems to be fine, which is what counts. Last shaver went five plus years using it, so I'm happy with its efficacy.

              • @mickeyjuiceman: Wow, I've never cleaned my Braun foil razor, just run it under the tap…
                …replace when getting blunt, usually yearly.
                If this could make it last 5 years??

          • @mickeyjuiceman: thats almost 95% iso propyl alcohol, seems quite high

            ive been looking at various recipes and they seem to say about 15%/litre of 70% iso, maybe its not that important and too strong/too weak will get the job done

            also do you need all the lemon/oil etc?

            im thinking of using this at a 60/40% ratio (Iso/Water) just to be safe and nothing else as i dont care about smell or colour

      Seems a bit drastic. Try relaxation methods instead. Besides, you'll find it tastes terrible.

    • Isopropanol is metabolised to a chemical very similar to acetone, so very no.

      However, 'off the shelf' methylated spirits in AU and NZ, contains no methanol, and is actually 97% Ethanol.
      So while I'd never ever advise it, on a purely technical level, that should be.

    i bought with ABN.

    Lately i have been using this as an ant killer (Overpriced i know). Put it in a old spray bottle and use it in the house. A lot cleaner and non toxic after it dries.
