Explanation:
Surgical spirit is ethanol to which has been added a small amount of methanol to render it unfit to drink. It is used to sterilize surfaces and skin. Commonly called rubbing alcohol in the US. Also called methylated spirit in BE, according to NODE. Sometimes Americans refer to a Wundauflage as a surgical dressing.
