70% to 91% is fine. Anything under 70% isn't strong enough and anything over 91% evaporats too quickly to kill germs so it has to be diluted with distilled water
I appreciate someone pointing out higher isn't always better, but the CDC recommends above 60%.

You're perfectly fine getting alcohol at 60% and up. COVID isn't immune to the effects of alcohol at lower percentages, then becomes susceptible once it hits 70%. It'll have effect even at lower concentrations. One study showed ethanol at 42.6% was effective against coronavirus within 30 seconds.

I would not hesitate to use 60% alcohol and I work in a hospital.

"Alcohol" is not a specific chemical, it is a class of chemical. So, the type of alcohol we are talking about is important. The CDC recommends at least 60% if it is Ethanol, and 70% is it is Isopropanol (i.e. Isopropyl Alcohol). Actual CDC Link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2...giene.html

I beleive the FDA has their information incorrect. The CDC recommends 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol. They also state the following:

"A final concentration of 80% ethanol or 75% isopropyl alcohol recommended in the USP hand sanitizer toolkit..."

(https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2...giene.html)

The problem with our government right now is a lack of the ability to put out _CLEAR_ information that the public can understand. You go to the CDC website and out of the blue that mention "ABHR" but never bother to explain what that means. They talk about "isopropanol" and "isopropyl" and never talk about the difference or ever make any attempt to explain this is every day terms.

Personally, I'd stick with a mixture that still keeps IPA at 70%. Even at 70%, you'd need to mix a lot of IPA with a very small part of something else to keep it at 60%.

I posted the same thing at the same time. Smilie

Thank you for explaining "Isopropanol".

But 91% cleans bongs and other glassware much better. 70% is pretty useless for that.
so 70% won't clean a bong well? I been using acetone for that since I can't find alcohol but want to switch

We have always used IPA but been having problems finding it in stock. Here is a brief break down including the price for 64 oz if you could purchase that volume.
CVC: Typically out of stock and when in stock it is very limited. Instore purchase only for one bottle limit. Don't recall the exact price but it was rather expensive.
Walmart: Never found it in any store. Online 64 oz will cost >$10 for 64 oz with shipping. Delivery has been running almost two weeks after order.
Sam"s:: Have never been able to get IPA from this store. Guessing it is all routed to Walmart delivery sales.
Target: Always out of stock in ALL the local stores except for this offer. $5.16 for 64 oz but sales limited to 1 bottle?
Costco: First visit in a month last week. It was in stock for ~$3.50 for 64 oz and no limit. Picked up two twin packs but wanted to get more; resisted taking advantage.
Kudos to Costco for not price gouging like most other sellers.
I use only diluted bleach (CDC recommended 4+ tsp/qt) for incoming foods. Also works well for produce, lettuce, sink soaking to kill e coli. Diluted bleach is very cheap and effective. I have used this santaizer, for decades, on all counter tops and sinks. It is always used to cleanup after handling raw chicken. Use the diluted bleach, where possible, to reduce the use of IPA and maybe do a better disinfection process.

Bullshisse, I swab my banger and clean glass with 70% it works fine. Though , I prefer 91, and did just score 4 large bottles.

70% and salt will be fine.

If you are going to the store, look for the 32 oz bottle. It normally sells for $1.98. I picked up a bunch 2 weeks ago!

Yeah acetone is a harsh chemical for you and the environment. 70% would be just fine. Heck soap & water would probably be fine if you can let it sit for a while. Let the solvent do the work.

Yeah, I understand that part. I meant to mix the 70% and the 90% and make 80% alcohol, which is supposed to perform better than 70%.
Don't think 80% IPA is better than 70%. Although there may not be a significant difference. 70% IPA (and 62% ethanol) is supposed to be the most effective concentration. Either higher or lower will be less effective.
