In our everyday life, we notice that our various household and everyday use commodities become smudged with dirt, filth, spots and marks due to their regular usage. Most of us wonder what the most effective way to clean all these products is.
In this blog, we mention a cleaning agent called isopropyl alcohol also commonly known as spirit which is usually used for disinfecting injuries and scrapes.
Unlike normal alcohol, rubbing alcohol is incorporated with other chemicals that makes it bitter and undrinkable.
Here are the top 10 cleaning uses of rubbing alcohol.
You can easily clean the marks and stains of permanent marker from your uniform and normal clothes by using some rubbing alcohol. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to a cloth and wipe the stain. Don’t be too aggressive when rubbing as you might damage the cloth. Wait for a few moments and rinse with lukewarm water.
You can also eliminate the ink of fountain pens, gel pens, and ball-pens with this product.
Cleaning Your Electronic Items
You can also clean your regularly used electronic gadgets like tablets, laptops, mouses, and keyboards easily with this alcohol. Our laptops, mice and keyboards get stained fairly easily mainly because we are normally drinking or eating something while using them. So any time coffee or water gets spilled on them, just pour some alcohol on a cotton bud or a small piece of cloth and wipe the smear site with it.
Note that if the liquid has spilled inside an opening, don’t try to clean it with rubbing alcohol, rather turn off the machine and unplug it from its electrical source to prevent it from short circuiting.
Get Rid Of House Flies
Insects can create real trouble in your daily life. The scents of fruits and vegetables attract them. These flies can bring different types of germs into your house which can result in different diseases.
To prevent house and fruit flies from coming in, take an ordinary spray bottle, fill it with rubbing alcohol and next time they appear, spray it on them.
