    Nope.

    Denatured alcohol is sometimes called mentholated alcohol or mentholated spirits. In the us you can usually find it in a hardware store in the paint and solvents area. Rubbing alcohol tends to have a much lower alcohol content and a much higher H2O content.
     
  3. but rubbing alcohol is still denatured alcohol, just a lower concentration of it.
