## Do you need distilled water to dilute isopropyl alcohol?

While it is generally okay to use it at the 70/30 ratio, many detailers prefer to dilute it down to a **50/50 (Alcohol to Distilled Water) ratio** for optimal results.

## What water should I use to dilute isopropyl alcohol?

TO MAKE A STANDARD SOLUTION (70%):

Dilute by adding 1 **part water** to 2 parts of this 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.

## How do you dilute 95% alcohol to 75 %?

All we have to do is to subtract the volume of 95% alcohol from the volume of 75% alcohol, in this case: 1.26 x 1.00 = 0.26 l = **260 ml**.

…**This means that you have 75% of pure alcohol and 25% of water:**

- 0.75 x 1000 = 750 ml.
- This is the amount of pure alcohol.
- 0.25 x 1000 = 250 ml.
- This is the amount of water.

## Can you dilute 91 isopropyl alcohol with water?

In terms of mathematics or statistics, you can **dilute 99% isopropyl alcohol to 91% IPA by adding about 9.8% of water in it**. In simple words, it can be said that just take 10 parts of 99% isopropyl alcohol and add 1 part of water to make it 91% IPA.

## How do you dilute 100% alcohol to 70%?

Add **350 mL** of 100 percent isopropyl alcohol to a 500 mL graduated cylinder. Ensure that the measurement is read at eye level with the meniscus, the bottom of the curved liquid, at 350 mL. Add an additional 150 mL of water to the graduated cylinder for a total volume of 500 mL, again measured at eye level.

## Can you mix isopropyl alcohol and water?

Because water molecules are polar, any liquid that does not have polar molecules—such as oil—is usually immiscible with water. Rubbing alcohol molecules have a **polar and nonpolar** part, which means they are able to form hydrogen bonds with water and therefore able to mix with it.

## How do you dilute 91% isopropyl alcohol to 70?

Measure out one cup of 91 per cent rubbing alcohol, and pour it into the plastic container. **Add one-third of a cup of water** and stir to mix the solution. The solution is now 70 per cent rubbing alcohol. Repeat this procedure as often as needed to obtain the desired amount of 70 per cent rubbing alcohol.

## How do you dilute 95% alcohol to 70%?

For example, to make 70% ethanol from 95% ethanol, **take 70 mL of 95% ethanol and add enough water to bring the volume to 95 mL**. You will then have 95 mL of 70% ethanol. This works for any dilution and all that is required is a large enough graduated cylinder.

## How do you dilute 90% alcohol to 70%?

1/5 of 15 ounces is 3 ounces. Thus, **3 ounces of water added to 15 ounces of 90%** rubbing alcohol will create a solution of 70% rubbing alcohol.
