Compared to other solvents, isopropyl or rubbing alcohol is the most common solvent in hospitals, pharmaceuticals, electronics, cleaning medicals devices, and rooms. Various types of solvents with different concentrations are beneficial and effective when used correctly, however, if the solvent is mishandled the consequences can be dangerous. Join us as we discuss various ways on how you can safely use isopropyl alcohol. Let’s get started.

 

Swimmers ear

If you are a swimmer I bet you know too well about the swimmer’s ear. It is the situation when water gets in your water when swimming. Other than pain, the water creates a conducive environment for pathogens to thrive. In severe cases, the water may impede hearing. This is where isopropyl becomes a swimmer best friend. A few drops of the alcohols are put in the swimmer’s ear and helps the water to evaporate since the solvent evaporates quickly than water. This eventually dries all the moisture in the air and protects it against infections.

 

Astringents

Astringents make your body tissues like pores to contract and tighten. These substances are commonly used on faces to minimize the pores as well as making the skin smooth. The isopropyl alcohol acts as an astringent, that’s why it is normally used in making tightening formulas and skin toners.

 

Reduces muscle pain

When isopropyl is used improperly and in large amounts, it may irritate the skin. The solvent is used as a liniment to help in relieving pain from aching muscles. When isopropyl is rubbed on the aching muscles it irritates the skin and causes increased blood circulation. The increased blood circulation helps in easing inflammation and pain.

 

Electronics

When it comes to cleaning your electronic devices, isopropyl is the ideal option. The solvent cleans your devices perfectly without leaving damage or streaks. In the electronic industry, it is mostly used to clean IC packages and magnetic tapes. Also, it is perfect for wiping fingerprints on DVDs and CDs because it does not damage the surface.

 

Disinfectant

Isopropyl is used as a disinfectant because it has antibacterial properties. These properties make it a better option for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. It can perfectly clean surfaces like windows or mirrors. The solvent leaves your surfaces with a sparkling and squeaky finish.

 

Household solvent

Isopropyl is used in our homes to kill lingering bacteria in toilet bowls and countertops. It also helps in dissolving oil and grease residues. It is also used in erasing permanent markers by just adding a few drops on the mark and thereafter wiping it easily.

 

Antiseptic

This solvent is used in hospitals by doctors to swap patients skin before injections. Also, it is used to swab your ears before piercing to kill all the bacteria around the area. Additionally, isopropyl is used in hand sanitizers because it kills and protects your hands from bacteria.

 

Defrosting car windows

During winter isopropyl helps in keeping the frost away. This is achieved by mixing water and isopropyl in the ratio of 8:1. Spray the mixture on your car windows to avoid frosting. Make sure you repeat the process after rainstorms and after washing your car.

 

Remove stickers

Spray the solvent on the stubborn stickers and allow it to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. The alcohol helps in dissolving the adhesives allowing you to easily and effortlessly wipe the sticker.

 

Removes stains

If your cloth accidentally gets ink stains, isopropyl alcohol is the best option that will help you to remove the stains. Just soak the stained part of the cloth and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it.
