Everclear is available at most liquor stores in South Carolina by the
name Everclear. It is 200 proof, or very close to it, grain alcohol.
I suspect most liquor stores everywhere have something similar.

I have not had any streaking issues with VDB or kallitype with the
papers that I use. On the other hand, I recall that Carl Weese
mentioned that he got some streaking with kallitype on Lenox paper. I
now have some Lenox paper so I am going to test it by adding a few
drops of Everclear to the sensitizing solution to see how it works as
compared to the sensitizer with no Everclear.
I guess my question for those with some experience with both
Everclear and Tween would be how do they compare. Does one substitute
for the other?
