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 ethanol.

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

If you use denatured alcohol just be sure what its denatured with. The denaturants may make it unsuitable for some purposes beside drinking.
