Why is rubbing alcohol so damn expensive?

It’s about $9 a bottle now. What the hell happened?

by Anonymousreply 32February 11, 2024 1:36 AM

It's $1.58 at Walmart, dumbass.

All the most delicious drinks are overpriced right now.

Wherever you live, OP, you should move.

And stop drinking rubbing alcohol.

by Anonymousreply 4February 10, 2024 5:58 PM

$1.25 at 1.25 🎄

What do you rub it on, OP?

by Anonymousreply 6February 10, 2024 6:46 PM

Just stick to drinking vanilla extract.

OP, are you buying it on Amazon now because the clerk at Walgreens was getting suspicious? That extra $7 is the hidden shipping and handling charge.

Everything on Amazon is ridiculously overpriced. That’s what monopolies do.

The multi-packs on Amazon are cheaper per ounce than the big bottle. Also, the smaller bottles are easier to hide in the toilet tank and in other places around the house. Try that, OP.

In looking up “can you drink rubbing alcohol?*” I discovered that the alcohol we drink is ethanol. They put ethanol in gasoline which is cheaper than rubbing alcohol. Just a thought.

*the answer is no.

R12 You're probably the only person here who didn't know you can't drink rubbing alcohol.

by Anonymousreply 13February 10, 2024 9:17 PM

But I’m also the only one who does know that you CAN drink gasoline.

by Anonymousreply 14February 10, 2024 9:18 PM

You see what an alcoholic you are? You'd even drink gasoline if it was in a bottle! You stink like an alcoholic! Positively disgusting!

As a math person, I know there’s variations with the purity so it’s not always apples to apples but the dollar store carries it. It’s only 70% out think. I believe there are strong variations but it’s not $9. That is unless you’re buying it in Manhattan or at some remote camp store with no options.

I* not out, been there done that LoL

I believe Drano would be more cost effective.

Mouthwash or hairspray will get you through in a pinch.

Rubbing alcohol costs $12 where I live it’s absurd!

$9 for a bottle of Rubbing Alcohol

OP buys his rubbing alcohol at Bergdorf Goodman

by Anonymousreply 26February 11, 2024 12:52 AM

R26 You think for that price you would at least get grabbed.

by Anonymousreply 27February 11, 2024 12:54 AM

Many items are overpriced nowadays.

A few weeks ago I paid $3.50 for a gallon of Washer Fluid at Stop & Shop. I remember buying a gallon of washer fluid at Kmart in January 2004 for only ONE dollar for a gallon. Prices are not up 350% since January 2004.

I don't think I've ever bought rubbing alcohol in my life.

I use it to make homemade cleaner for household chores

I bought a new bottle just last month at my pharmacy, I'm sure I paid less that $3 for it.
