This would be damaged by the isopropyl alcohol.

There are two standard kinds of rubbing alcohol: (1) one made with isopropryl alcohol, which has a certain toxicity but is more pleasant or neutral smelling; and (2) one made with ethyl alcohol with an added denaturing agent to make it inedible. The ethyl alcohol (ethanol) variety has a bitter or sour or unpleasant smell, and is therefore much less popular than the isopropryl alcohol variety. This is why even though the pharmaceutical definition for "rubbing alcohol" is denatured ethyl alcohol, isopropryl alcohol is far more available commercially and is also labeled as "rubbing" alcohol. The uses of both varieties are the same, although isopropryl alcohol, because of its inherant toxicity, carries warnings about overuse and safe handling.
