Flex sheet cleaning substitute

I normally clean the printer with IPA alcohol, and have had great results.

Unfortunately, it’s becoming very hard to come by as people are hoarding it in fear of a certain virus. 

Any good substitutes? Vodka?

Hot water and unscented detergent scrub does fine on it's own.

Print something after so all the water is baked off.

Fine for both smooth and textured sheets. 

Although if I could not get IPA, 190 proof Everclear might add an extra fillip to printing...

I've noticed the price of IPA where available is also creeping up!.

I did foresee this, so actually ordered 5L in advance.

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet.
