Removing PVC-E Glue & Solvent Abuse
By Paul Camps

Hi All,  Can I just clarify that I was not suggesting anyone should
drink mentholated spirit; it was just meant to be an amusing anecdote.
Obviously some of you took it the wrong way.  Sure, tramps used to
consume it as a substitute to whisky and gin; it was much cheaper,
for one thing.  And certainly it would have killed.

As for children drinking meth's, I would have thought this most
unlikely; there are far more readily available cleaning agents in the
cupboard under the sink.  However, "White Meth's" is probably the back
bone of the French polishing industry; we certainly used the stuff in
the organ building trade.
