RV Anti-Freeze

I have always used RV anti-freeze to pour down the drains into the p-traps while winterizing. I had a friend question me why I used RV anti-freeze in the drains instead of regular anti-freeze. I didn't have an answer. Does anyone know of a problem using regular anti-freeze in the drains?

Thanks. BTW it might be a good idea to make the water heater and by pass valves in that compartment more accessible. Having to take screws off each time is a pain. A door panel there would be appropriate. Those who are DIY will do it anyway.
I'll write for the script.

Regular anti freeze is HIGHLY toxic. As in only a few drops will cause kidney failure and death in animals. It's VERY important to use only RV or residential anti freeze. It's pink. I don't even top up my car antifreeze in my driveway if I can help it. If I do, I keep a hose handy and wash down the area with lots of water. Auto antifreeze is also sweet, so animals like it. Oh and yes, it's toxic to people too!
