Methylated Spirits is commonly known as Meths, Denatured Alcohol or Ethanol (Ethyl Alcohol), it is a virgin alcohol mixed with a small quantity of Methanol to make it unfit for consumption, and dyed purple.
Orders containing 5 litre Methylated Spirits will be delivered within 3 working days.
Also available: 4 x 5 litre.
It is a commonly used fuel in Meths burners on boats or outdoor heating and cooking. An alternative popular heating fuel used in greenhouse heaters and portable heaters is Paraffin, which we stock in 1x4L or 4x4L packs.
Methylated Spirits (Meths) can be used to thin spirit based stains, varnishes and paints, leaving your paint brushes overnight in a jar of Meths will enable them to be cleaned easily with warm soapy water the next day.
Furniture restorers and French Polishers regularly use Methylated Spirits when cleaning, removing wax and stripping furniture, as well as mixing with French polishes when finishing fine furniture.
Household cleaning using Methylated Spirits is a tried and tested application, including window and wipeboard cleaning.
Please see our Oil, Spirits and Solvents section for alternative spirits including White Sprits, Clean Spirits and Rustins Brush Cleaners.

Window Cleaning and Whiteboard Cleaning:
Mix a solution of 50% Meths and 50% water and pour into a spray bottle. Spray onto the window glass or whiteboard and clean off with paper kitchen towel for a clean smear free window or whiteboard. This is particularly good when a permanent marker pen has been used on your whiteboard.
