Ethanol vs. Methanol In Winter Washer Fluids and De-Icers
Unlike many of our competitors, at nextzett we never use methanol (wood alcohol) in any of our products that require an alcohol base. This is especially true with our winter care products Anti-Frost Concentrate winter washer fluid and De-Icer spray in which the majority of the product is alcohol-based. Why are we against methanol? It's simple. Methanol can be highly toxic. Instead, we use ethanol (ethyl alcohol) which is safer to use and is not as toxic. Rubbing alcohol and hand sanitizers are made from ethanol for this very reason since they are both applied directly to skin. While you won't be applying any of our products on your skin (at least we hope you don't), if you do you can be assured that you won't be dealing with a highly toxic product. Of course even with ethanol you should always be cautious and keep away from the kiddos. So why don't more brands use ethanol? Well, because it's more costly. Call us crazy but we think safety trumps cost anytime. Learn more about our Winter Care products here
