I am fairly new to pen turning and actually just got hired to work at the Cincinnati Rockler Woodworking & Hardware store because I was always in there buying supplies. 🤣 I look forward to learning from all of the seasoned pen turners on this site. I am wondering if it is safe to use denatured alcohol to clean up an acrylic pen blank after sanding it and prior to polishing it.

Welcome Lois! Denatured Alcohol works well with cleaning off blanks - both wood and acrylic. Just be sure to let it dry before applying a finish, especially if using CA, or it can cloud or whiten the end results.
Looking forward to seeing some of your work!
