Best Answer

Isopropyl alcohol and rubbing alcohol are not the same thing. For most uses, yes you can. This is because:

• Rubbing alcohol may contain either isopropyl alcohol or ethanol.

• Rubbing alcohol is a mixture of compounds (type of denatured alcohol) whereas isopropyl alcohol is not.

Isopropyl alcohol is not the same as denatured alcohol. The former is a rubbing alcohol that is poisonous. Denatured alcohol, on the other hand, is methanol that has been treated with denatonium benzoate and is not fit for human consumption.
