Be careful with methanol Stu - dangerous stuff. The skull and crossbones are not on the label for fun. It is readily absorbed through the skin and it won't do good things with your cognitive functioning.

Possibly Doc - IPA perhaps - I think it's also known as rubbing alcohol?

It's far safer, (but only if you don't drink it Stu) :lol:
