They might not be able to get t. HD did not have 1 can of exterior varnish  need to re-do my front doors. Odd... plenty of interior.


I like smoke! On food or in the air equally well.

probably shortage, because recently most of the global supply was converted to hand sanitizer

Assume that many random lines may be missing from shops. The need for IPA for hand cleaner wiped out the alcohols industry -everything was set to make IPA not denatured ethanol. Many things will come back to normal.

Hell..the Traverse City Distillery went to 2nd run ethanol instead of whiskey for 8 months I think. ‘Bout 170 proof/85% I think. Denatured it tho...sad :D But it came in their whiskey bottles. Appropriately labeled of course.

Yeah, HD don't seem to be stocking it in parts of the S USA. Walmart will ship it if you don't mind paying $38/gallon. I'm sure Duda Diesel has some in stock.

 

Liquor store carries non-denatured 190 proof (95%) Everclear or similar if you're not in a nanny state. Dual use!

 

Haven't seen any shortage of IPA 91% in Walmart stores or online either if that will sub appropriately for EtOH, and price is only about 25% higher than pre-pandemic.

 

It's available.
