It is still possible to find methyl spirit. It was used in surgeries as disinfectant a long time ago, it will do for me. In Screwfix at £2.99 for a 500ml bottle, but my local has run out - or in B&Q for nearly a fiver (it used to be dirty cheap). Managed to find two packs of my sensitive skin soap this morning, I'd have done a backflip if I could.
thanks. I might check B&Q out
