What is the difference between absolute ethanol and 95 ethanol?

The absolute alcohol has only 1% or less of water while 95% alcohol has about 5% water. The difference is a slight difference in specific gravity and a potential very great difference in reactivity. True absolute alcohol has no water at all, but may contain trace amounts of benzene used in its manufacture.

Can I use 95 ethanol 190 proof for hand sanitizer?

are not strong enough for hand sanitizer. Rubbing Alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol) is denatured ethanol, and approximately 70% ABV, therefore should not be diluted. We use 190 proof (95% ABV) and therefore can dilute it with glycerin and still have enough alcohol by volume in our hand sanitizer to be effective.

Why is 70% alcohol better than 95%?

70 % isopropyl alcohol is by far better at killing bacteria and viruses than 90 % isopropyl alcohol. As a disinfectant, the higher the concentration of alcohol, the less effective it is at killing pathogens.

What is the difference between isopropyl alcohol and denatured alcohol?

Isopropyl alcohol can be found as a bittering agent in denatured alcohol. After producers add bittering agents, denatured alcohol becomes more toxic than isopropyl alcohol. Denatured alcohol can be used as fuel stoves or lamps. Both types of alcohol can be used as solvents and, in some cases, desinfectants.

Can I clean my bong with denatured alcohol?

I would NOT use denatured alcohol to clean pipes, for concern that those bitterants would eventually ghost the pipe. Benzene is a commonly used adulterant in denatured alcohol and causes cancer. There is more to worry about with denatured alcohol that just a little off taste.
