For some things maybe but there are applications for which some sort of
alcohol is by far the best cleaning agent. I made what I thought
was a reasonable assumption that the OP had a specific cleaning
requirement that needed alcohol and that he wasn't just washing his
hands with it.
Soap is a wetting agent and is not a good cleaner and it doesn't kill germs
That is why soap powders have been replaced by detergents as they are far
better at cleaning.
Meths isn't very good at cleaning either, it is a solvent and you have to
keep diluting and then removing the solution.
There are better degreasers (for example) but they are a bit more dangerous
in the wrong hands.
Meths is still useful as antifreeze in the windscreen washers but it can
attack the wiper rubbers.
I have just bought the very same from a fibreglass vendor, CFS. Telephone
01209 821028. I have purchased polyester resin too and I have never used
such high quality resin. It flows and wets incredibly well, dries in a
sensible time and isn't sticky when cured. The service and prices are also
excellent in my opinion.
