.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Shucks, don't waste any perfectly good food grade alcohol when some rubbing alcohol will work fine!

All my old queens end up in the kids bug collections!

    I have one in isopropyl (-1sp?) alcohol.  I just don't know how long I can go until I need to throw it out.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I don't think you'll ever need to throw out IPA.

So, rubbing alcohol is good then? I thought it might leave a funny smell behind. (I'm sure everyone knows not to use the green "winterfresh" stuff...)
