You might try seeing if your pharmacy or chemical supply house (i. e.
Alfa) has 90% denatured alcohol (ethanol) if you can't get everclear in
your state. Most scientific labs stock what they call "absolute alcohol"
for cleaning and disinfecting lab apparatus.
Here's a link: http://www.fishersci.com/wps/portal/HOME
and search for
There'll be a long list ranging from 20 proof to 200 proof and of
various grades from "reagent" least expensive to "analytical" highest
purity. Note this stuff is denatured by the addition of other alcohols
so it is not suitable for drinking.
Hope that helps

Everclear, being pure grain alcohol, is sold in liquor stores. I
have purchased it in NV and AZ, but not here in CA where I live.
Also, it would be considered a hazardous substance when it comes
to shipping due to its flammability. Due to the hazardous status,
the shipping would probably exceed the cost of a fifth. So if
someone is passing through a state which allows its sale, have
them pick one up. It lasts nearly forever.

I haven't had a need for everclear yet (except for when things
don't work out and I need medication)...
But where can it be found...and is it shipped across state lines?
