Propan-1-ol vs Propan-2-ol as laser lens-cleaning solvents? [Answered elsewhere] Answered
I was going to buy some propan-2-ol (isopropyl alcohol) to clean my laser cutter lenses.
Before I went and bought some, I found a small bottle of propan-1-ol (so, I'm a hoarder!).
I know they have different structures, and slightly different chemistries, but I can't find anything about their comparative properties as cleaning solvents.
Will the 1-ol do the job of cleaning laser-gunk off lenses and mirrors, will it do nothing, or will it damage them?
I'd rather gather your wisdom before I risk having to buy new optics...
