The problem, as we all know, is getting the alcohol-based stuff.
Was lucky as I use industry strength isobruntnol alcohol in work for cleaning the laser beam lens.
Before we was laid off for a month last week i borrowed a few liters.
One in a spray and some in some small spray bottles. These i keep in the car for petrol pump cash machine spraying before i use them,
plus while wearing my black surgical gloves, again from work I wear them a lot for working on the lasers and robotic electronic equipment.

We ran out of the hand wash soaps we have in the kitchen by the sink. So rinse the empty one out,
Filled with lynx shower gel and 10% of my alcohol mixed in. Seems to be ok. It did not blow up. :lol:

Isobutanol? Me personally, I'm using Balkan 176 vodka which is 88% ABV. Internally, mind you. So I'm not worried about catching the virus. In fact, I'm not worried about anything...

Heard today on the radio: 'I decided to do some panic buying, but I checked my bank account first and realized all I could afford to do was panic' :lol:

Some southerners heading north to self isolate in their second home.

Unusually the press have released their names : Charles and Camilla I think!

I wonder if the Atlas C.1 at Aberdeen on Sunday was in connection with their arrival - or perhaps, given Charlie's health, they flew in it?

The Atlas was called on to fly a critically-ill patient from Shetland to Aberdeen for treatment.

I reckon he should have his and his wife's British passports rescinded.

The Health secretary Matt Hancock has also tested positive

PM and Health secretary - that sounds careless to me.

Perhaps they were infected before social distancing became normal practice?
