what is denatured alcohol ?
Denatured alcohol is an alcohol that was potentially consumable by
humans, but has a poison added to it to make it unfit for human
Alcohol is not expensive to produce. Since it is a pleasurable drink
to many folks, alot of governments apply a hefty tax to consumable
alcohol. To insure that they get their tax, the governments required
all alcohol on which tax is not paid by the mfgr. must be rendered
unfit for human consumption. This is done by adding a poison of some
kind to the pure alcohol. Usually there’s a colorant added as well
to differentiate it from pure alcohol, since pure alcohol is clear.
Thus the term ‘denatured’ (no longer natural). In the US most
’denatured’ alcohol has a purple colorant added.
