I want to have some 99% isopropyl alcohol for cleaning purposes and I'm wondering where to store it since in my apartment I don't have a storage room or much space.

I've read it needs to be air tight and away from light and heat.

Would it be ok to store it in the cupboard under the sink close to other regular cleaning products? There won't be much ventilation there.

    $\begingroup$ You've probably bought that in a store. How do they keep it? I assume you're not storing hundreds of liters. $\endgroup$ Feb 28, 2022 at 19:12

Unless you have a gallon or more, under the sink is good . I believe I have some under the kitchen sink and I know I have some under the bathroom sinks. My 16 oz isopropyl plastic bottles are 90 %.
