No rubbing alcohol but isopropyl alcohol. True technical iso has as much in common with rubbing alcohol as Everclear has with light beer. My bottle of isopropyl from MG Chemicals is labeled as 99.953% pure anhydrous alcohol and is specifically labeled for cleaning magnetic media heads. The label also states it leaves zero residue.

I paid $7.95 per liter at Fry's.
