This is the wrong alcohol to use in your recipe. If you'd like to make your own homemade Berger lamp oil recipes then you need to follow the directions carefully. If you don't this can cause issue. Using 70 percent alcohol will cause a lot of smoke and it is not good at all. I would rather buy the oil than to have an issue in my home.

It might be a bit more expensive but check your home improvement stores for 99% isopropyl alcohol. I saw some at Ace Hardware recently in a metal can, like you used to see kerosene in.

I also was able to get some 91% at Walgreens. You might ask your local store when their next shipment comes in and/or if they will save some or let you preorder.

Good luck!

Do not use 70% alcohol. It has too much water and can cause issues.

70% is not recommended, It tends to smoke more- here is a recipe on how - www.ehow.com/how_6567904_mix-lampe-berger-oil...

70% cannot be used.
Occasionally our local Walmart and CVS will have it in stock but you have to be there and that is difficult unless you have someone checking for you.

Here is a link to the CVS site and they seem to be keeping their site up to date but you have to check everyday.
