Woops! I bought Propylene Glycol, which I believe is safe. Not the
stuff that you buy as pet safe anti-freeze as it has a lot of additives,
but I think the jug said USP or some such on it.
I have found from past bitter experience that anti-freeze makes printed
circuit boards **permantly** conductive. At least nothing I found would
clean them. So a few drops on a pc board and it goes in the trash.
