You can also use Isopropanol (Isopropyl alcohol), which is just the oxide of propane. I actually heat my cold bathroom during the winter, just before I take a shower, using Isopropanol and a garden sprayer (with a brass tip) as a flame-throwing blow torch. It takes about 1.3 seconds to bring the temperature of the whole bathroom up from 54 F to 86 F. Just burning the Isopropanol after pouring it out onto a surface isn't enough. An air-injected Isopropanol flame combusts more completely and produces much higher temperatures. Even propane can't compete with it. I would like to point out at this time that I take no responsibility for anyone else's carelessness, and I make no warranty for the performance or safety of anyone else's Isopropanol flame-throwing apparatus.
this really intrigues me.
Since I live in Michigan and the weather is getting a little nippy,
I couldn't help but think of your bathroom heating technique when I
came down to the bathroom today. I predominantly heat with wood,
so of course my bathroom was a little chilly. Just a couple of questions.
I have the hose and several brass tips to choose from, also maybe I
could use acetylene since I have a good supply of that. My concern is:
we have a vinyl shower curtain along with vinyl pulldown window blinds.
Also we have stacks of magazines and my wife likes the towels with allot of
fuzzy nap on them. Do I need to remove all these thing before I try out your
"instant bathroom heating method" (my wife is a little particular) or have you
had good luck in controlling flame bursts.
I realize your post is from a while ago, but it's getting that time of the year again.
thanks in advance,
