You can buy rubbing alcohol with a concentration of 70% or 99% isopropyl alcohol. Even though you might think a higher concentration is more effective, experts say 70% is actually better for disinfectants. It has more water, which denies it to dissolve more slowly, penetrate cells, and kill bacteria. The disinfecting power of rubbing alcohol drops at concentrations is higher than 80%-85%.
It gets rid of plant pests
Rubbing alcohol works in a natural way that is less toxic to get rid of pests in your home. You can find high-quality isopropyl alcohol for sale and wipe the insect with a cotton swab dipped in it to stop small outbreaks of mealybugs, aphids, whiteflies, and scale crawlers.
It eases nausea after surgery
It is common to feel stomach pain or vomit after surgery. This is a side effect of the drug that helps you sleep (anesthesia). Some research studies show that breathing in rubbing alcohol on alcohol pads can help to soothe your stomach after surgery. It may work faster than standard anti-nausea medicines, but the effects are short-term.
Clean around the house
You can use rubbing alcohol to clean some surfaces. For DIY glass and window cleaning, mix 1-liter rubbing alcohol with ½ cup of ammonia and ½ teaspoon of liquid detergent. Add enough water to make a gallon and pour it into a spray bottle. To get bugs and tree sap off of your car, first, wash your car and then dab some rubbing alcohol on leftover spots with a cloth.
