aha a more than 90%
well mine is 95% but it says Aqua and Alcohol so it has to be ethanol as google search showed

Highly unlikely. The sale and labelling of such products are tightly regulated.
  ... with a transistor and a large sum of money to spend ...
Please don't PM me with technical questions. Post them in the forum.

what do you mean ? i did not understand what you mean ?

i just put some pure alcohol in a cup and i threw the Shift registers 959 inside and after a while i took them off and cleaned them with a small towel and now leaving it to dry a little
is that a good procedure to do or it will have a negative impact on the ICs ?

Alcohol will not damage the IC's. For your own health, treat it as a toxic chemical.

depends on the alcohol

isppropyl alcohol  can work

Ethanol is subject to duty and very expensive.

Meths is a mixture of mostly ethanol and methanol to make it undrinkable methanol is very poisonous.

Meths contains an emetic to discourage you.

what do you want to clean off ?

deonised or distilled water should work for that depending what the dust is and you thouroughly dry it.
does nnot an air blast work ?

i dont have one,
i have the normal hair dryer which won't work

but anyway what i did is take a cup put some pure alcohol the one you can use on injuries or for cleaning and put some in the cup and after i threw the shifts inside and then take them out and dry it with tissue and left it to fully dry in the normal air

Well, somewhat poisonous.  The amounts cited are moderately difficult to ingest. :smiley-eek:

Not usually.  Generally a bitterantand possibly odorant.

There are fair few tourists who have bought cheap alcohol when travelling who would thoroughly disagree with that, a no of doctors as well.

In any case whatever the additive i find my local stuff leaves a residue so probably best not used for pcbs.

I'm not quite sure of the difference between a bitterent and an emetic but i'm not about to try and find out.

A bitterent make it nasty to ingest while an emetic make it easy to eject!   :)  :)  :)

grin.

As an addendum , industrial meths is an excellent solvent imo.

It does not have the residue associated with the over the counter.

Unfortunately eu taxation of alcohol encourages adulteration by criminal gangs and poisoning is too common.

This makes industrial meths extremely difficult to get.
