Gamma-Butyrolactone Liquid (γ-butyrolactone or GBL) is a hygroscopic compound with a weak characteristic odor and is soluble in water. GBL is a common solvent and reagent in chemistry and is used as an aroma compound, as a stain remover, as a superglue remover, as a paint stripper, and as a solvent in some wet aluminium electrolytic capacitors.
Gamma-Butyrolactone Liquid GBL (gamma butyrolactone, ‘geeb’) is a clear liquid solvent. It is a prodrug for the illegal substance GHB, which means that the body naturally converts it into GHB.
Gamma-Butyrolactone Liquid, It is sold in the grey market, often as ‘alloy cleaner’ or ‘rust remover’ and smells pretty much like you’d expect an industrial solvent to smell like.
It is hard to store, requiring a glass bottle or bottle of a certain type of plastic. It will melt through most plastics. Yum!

There is a very good reason for starting small, which we will come to soon. Do not drink it neat straight from the pipette.
If it’ll clean alloys, it’ll not be nice to your teeth, gums, tongue and throat. Most people prefer to mix it with fruit juice in a shot glass.
