Useful Benefits of Rubbing Alcohol

Most people keep a bottle of rubbing alcohol in the medicine cabinet. First, there are two types of rubbing alcohol. Isopropyl is commonly made with a concentration of 70 percent alcohol and bitter additives that make the toxic substance unattractive to drink. Ethyl alcohol is made of 97.5 to 100 percent denatured ethanol, which means it has been made unsafe to drink. Rubbing alcohol is traditionally used as a disinfectant, but it has a number of benefits that you may never have considered. Kill bedbugs. If you’ve been plagued by bedbugs, follow the advice of American Pest Control and fill a spray bottle with isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Spritz the braiding of the mattress, headboard and box springs. It works because rubbing alcohol kills the bugs on contact. Kill fruit flies. Attack fruit flies by spraying them. Remove stains, mixing 1 part rubbing alcohol with 2 parts water. Pour into a spray bottle and spray directly on stains. This works on everything from ink to coffee. Deodorize sneakers. Spray the insides of your shoes allow the shoes to dry overnight. Heal cold sores. Shrink cold sores by dabbing alcohol directly on the sore. Sanitize hands. Instead of using store-bought hand sanitizer, make your own using 3 parts rubbing alcohol and 1 part aloe vera‚Ķ.Ed
