Seems like there are two types of what we know as rubbing alcohol: the blue type that is apparently medicinal, and the clear one that is "multipurpose" and also used for firing up the old barbecue grill. I did a side-by-side comparison a couple of years ago, and decided I didn't want to buy the firestarter stuff to use on my skin -- can't remember exactly, but there was a difference in the ingredients. The esposo thinks the firestarter stuff is just fine, and that it's perfectly normal to fire up the grill and then go disinfect a wound or attack some zits. The blue one is harder to find though, and is it just me, or does rubbing alcohol smell gross here? That smell doesn't sit well with me. Never thought I'd miss the smell of US/Euro style rubbing alcohol! Weird.
