I am having trouble finding Energine cleaner. Do you know what stores carry it? Thank you!
I have a can of Energine that I am looking at this very moment. It says, and I quote, "Contains 100% Naphtha." No mention of Trichloroethane or any other ingredients. I also have some Zippo lighter fluid that cleans and smells exactly the same as Energine as far as I can tell.
they used to have 2 kinds. Flamable and Fireproof Maybe this explains the different ingredients.
1,1,1-trichloroethane is the less-toxic replacement for the original carbon tetrachloride cleaning fluid. CarbonTet was also used as a fire extinguishing fluid (in sealed glass "grenades" you threw at the fire) and thus was the "fireproof" Energine. Naphtha, even low- flashpoint, can be used as cigarette lighter fluid and so is obviously not the original Fireproof Cleaning Fluid.
where can I buy Energine Cleaner
I remember Energine--boy, it really worked! No more energine. Would gasoline work?
