    Is isopropyl alcohol commonly called surgical spirit?

    I read somewhere that you can use isopropyl alcohol instead of blending solution with alcohol inks. I am having problems getting hold of it. Is surgical spirit the common name for this chemical? Any ideas anyone - its just that I seem to be going through loads of blending solution with my alcohol inks and dont want to pay 4.99 again and again

    It's rubbing alcohol, right? Boots probably has it...

    Oh, this is what Wikipedia says: In the UK the equivalent skin preparation is surgical spirit which is always based on an ethyl alcohol-methyl alcohol mixture, and which often has the addition of small quantities of iodoform as a topical bacteriocide.

    Not sure if it has another name but I did use alot of it when I was cake decorating, so you could try a shop that sell cake decorating supplies. Hope that helps. I threw a bottle out because I have given up the cake decorating before I had discovered all about alchol inks in scrapbooking, could have kicked myself

    Don't know what it's also known as, I have some (I bought it to unblock printer head), didn't know you could use it with alcohol inks too .

    Maplin electronics sell it for about 6.50 for a 400 ml aerosol
