What is the difference between denatured ethanol (IMS) & Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA)?

Both are equally effective disinfectants so the choice is down to other factors. IPA dries more rapidly, but has a strong acrid smell and a lower occupational exposure limit than IMS. However IMS has a sweeter smell that some users may find unpleasant.
