Rubbing Alcohol Uses

Most may think that rubbing alcohol only belongs in the first aid kit or in your bathroom just for emergencies. It’s a versatile product, using it with water can do so many things.


You will be surprised by the things it can do, all you will need is a spray bottle, water, and the rubbing Alcohol. You can clean furniture, sanitize your home, make your own hand sanitizer and lots more.



Help Prevent streaking.


Most cleaning agents will leave streak marks on furniture when you wipe them down. After that happen, you would have to go over and wipe it down with a dry cloth, which will make your work twice as hard.


Mix one part rubbing alcohol with one part water and clean most things in your house, like windows, Stainless steel and lots more.


Lift dirt 

When other cleaning agents won’t lift the dirt or take too long, rubbing alcohol will do that in no time.


The components that make up the rubbing alcohol will break down the dirt or grease quickly and effectively.


Clean Your Window Blinds


Because rubbing alcohol breaks down dirt and grease fast, cleaning your window Blinds will not get easier than this.


Spray the rubbing alcohol on the window blinds, get an old sock that you’re not using and just wipe the blinds down.


Make sure to flip the blind to make them flat. When that side is completed open the blinds and place your hand around each blind and run your hand across it.





You can use it to clean anything. As soon as it comes in contact with bacteria it kills it immediately. Just wipe the area and let it dry. This is perfect for wiping down your toilet to destroy all that bacteria that’s on the seat.

Cleaning Your phone


Holding your phone and other things will transfer bacteria to the phone and your phone is constantly on your face which isn’t good and can cause acne problems.



Makeup as well will get on your phone, along with grease from your face. Get a small Spray bottle and add one part rubbing alcohol and 2 part water to make a small but effective electronic cleaner.


Cleaning Your Face


The majority of us will have acne at some point in our life. Most of us don’t take the time out to properly clean our face from using all that makeup and dust that blows on our faces.


You can use your rag or anything you use to clean your face at home and add rubbing alcohol to it and give it a proper clean. You will be so surprised by what comes off your face after doing this.


Cleaning Chrome 


As I said earlier rubbing Alcohol will leave no streaks so cleaning chrome will never be easier. Your cabinets handle, car door or door handles will look so shiny.


This will also disinfect each area you wipe down as well. Just use a microfiber cloth and wipe them down.


Make your own Hand Sanitizer 


Go to your local pharmacy and get a small Spray bottle and a bottle of Aloe vera jell. Add one part rubbing alcohol, 2 part Aloe vera jell and a few drops of essential oil to the bottle.


You can add a teaspoon of almond oil to it just to help your hands keep moist when you use the hand sanitizer. Shake it well and you’re done.



Making An Ice Pack 


Place a new sponge in water and let it soak it up. Place the sponge in a ziplock bag, then add some rubbing alcohol and place it in the freezer, this will make the perfect ice pack.


It will form a gel-like substance that is flexible and holds its temperature for longer. This is ideal for places that need the ice pack to bend to form over your body.
