    You can use a ton of stuff, even Dawn dish soap and water. Isopropyl is just a fast, easy, and inexpensive staple.

    I use the 70% for normal wound stuff, but need the 91% for cleaning the glass bed of my 3D printer.

    Could that "3D Printer" print me one of those micro-Bikini Chicks from the 1980's Hawaiian Tropic suntan ads ?

    Err, just asking for my Grandson up in Dallas. . . . . . . . .

    If it could, I'd have it going 24/7

    Can you not use acetone or methanol for the 3D printer cleaning? Acetone is widely available at the hardware store, and methanol can be found at racing supply stores for about half of acetone's price. Methanol needs you to wear a couple pairs of gloves to prevent it from getting on your skin however
    The glass I use has a fine mesh grid on it so the prints stick better to prevent warping. I've tried using Acetone once and it destroyed the mesh after 2 times. I've also tried Windex and it will wear out the mesh pretty fast. 91% alchohol seems to work the best from the things I've tried so far.

    I have had good luck bumping up the bed temp a bit so I'm a little farther into the glass transition region of whatever plastic. Seems to keep my warping down to zero for the size prints I typically do. I print on bare borosilicate glass
