Does anyone know where I can buy 100% food grade alcohol? I live in a dry county and am unable to buy vodka.

Can you buy some in the next county, and keep it on hand for when you need it?

You would have to go to a county that has a liquor store. You cannot have alcohol/wine shipped into a dry county, beyond illegal. If you want a 100% pure alcohol you would have to use Everclear(just don't drink it). Vodka and such is only about 40% pure or 80 proof.

I promise I'm not an alcoholic or anything lol. I've just been in the liquor industry for a very long time.

Pure Lemon extract is 77% alcohol. It is preferred over vodka if you are going to use it for painting luster dust. It is also the most shop lifted item by teenagers at my local Penzey's Spices store.
