Plastics are generally inert to its environment. It can hold a corrosive acid pretty well than a metallic container. Its very often we come across HCl cans and Methanol cans made of plastic. I don't think, denatured alcohol would affect the plastic container that you tend to use... I really wonder if you bother about the purity of denatured alcohol that you use for fabric cleaning. Still, I can ensure that the methanol we use for DMFC, comes in plastic containers!!!! I can also ensure that holding up denatured alcohol in a metallic container is worse than keeping it in a plastic container!
