is it ok to use EtOH or MeOH instead of Butanol?

I just ran out of butanol and only have ethanol and methanol in the lab. is it ok to use those to make a smooth surface for lower gel?

In my lab butanol is usually "borrowed" by people who use it for TLC so we switched to amyl alcohol.

We never had any problems with EtOH.
Some groups I've been at also use water.
