Previously we have reported on toxic admixtures to alcoholic beverages legally sold in Russia [1,2]. During the anti-alcohol campaign in the former Soviet Union (SU) (1985-1988), many distilleries producing alcoholic beverages of standard quality were closed and dismantled. Restrictions of sales resulted in drinking by many people of industrial liquids, window cleaner, lotions etc. Considering the large scale of the window cleaner sales in some places e.g. in Siberia, it was knowingly tolerated by authorities.
