Post by Walrus81 » Thu May 23, 2019 5:16 pm

Ordered what I thought was the antiseptic solution.

However what I ordered was actually the following:

Can I still use it ias a no rinse sanitiser?

No, I don't think you can. You need the antiseptic solution.

As the alcohol is meths (methanol) you do not want to be using it, although the dilution rate is so low, and you use it drip dry, some might consider that you could 'get away with it'!! The risk to health is not worth it IMO

That would have bought you a decent size bottle of star san. The dilution rates are crazy too.
