Anyone using an alcohol torch??? I bought a new one and the instructions say to use only ethanol or ethyl based denatured alcohol. We all I can find is the methanol based denatured alcohol that the instructions say not to use. Who knows where to get the ethanol based stuff???

"denatured alcohol" is simply ethyl alcohol to which a poisonous substance, such as acetone or methanol, has been added to make it unfit for consumption. methanol is an also an alcohol, and acetone is a ketone, and both are very toxic.

I use the denatured alcohol you get at Home Depot also. Been using if for nearly 30 years with NO problems- unless I fall asleep with my flame under the wrap.
