Methylated Spirits (or Denatured alcohol) is ethanol that has additives to make it more poisonous or unpalatable, and thus, undrinkable.
Uses for methylated spirits.
- It's great as a glass cleaner! If you're going to use it in hot conditions, dilute it with water.
- In fuel stoves - methylated spirits burns very cleanly; a little too cleanly in fact as it can be hard to see the flame etc,.
