People have been using medical alcohol as a disinfectant and to remove sticky substances for a long time, but there are more uses behind disinfection that most people don’t know about.
** Here are some of the lesser-known medicinal uses of alcohol:
Getting rid of bed bugs
Bed bugs are a very annoying problem. Even if you’re diligent about cleaning your bed daily, you can bring it home after staying in an unclean hotel or after vacationing somewhere abroad. Fortunately, sprinkling some medical alcohol on your pillow and mattress can get rid of these pesky insects. Fill a spray bottle with alcohol and spray it on the bed. You can repeat this process several times to eliminate bed bugs and their eggs as well.
Alternative to deodorants!!
If you forget to take deodorant while you are on vacation or spend some days outside your home, don’t buy another deodorant. All you have to do is spray some alcohol on your armpits to kill bacteria and prevent odor. However, you should only use this method in the short term because alcohol can harm your skin.
Fill a spray bottle with alcohol and spray it on your head to get rid of lice. Then comb your hair to remove dead insects. According to the Public Health Organization, the comb should be soaked in medical alcohol for an hour before performing this procedure to remove all dead lice.
clean your ears
Mix some white vinegar with alcohol, then dip a cotton swab in the mixture and use it to clean your ears. This method is better than using cotton buds that push the wax deeper into the ear canal.
Removes nail polish
Girls usually remove nail polish with acetone, but this can be harmful to the nails. So you can wipe the polisher with alcohol and your nails will be healthy.
clean your skin
Instead of using anti-acne creams that contain benzoyl peroxide, you can use alcohol as an alternative. It has anti-inflammatory properties that clean your skin and calm inflammation, in addition to preventing acne breakouts. Apply alcohol directly to the pimple as it may irritate the area around it.
Mix ½ tablespoon of medical alcohol, aloe vera gel, and a few drops of tea tree oil to make a natural hand sanitizer.
