Uses For Rubbing Alcohol

DVD MorguefileRubbing alcohol as its name implies is soothing and disinfecting to human skin. It can be used as well to clean and disinfect other surfaces. It also may be used as a solvent that is much gentler and less likely to damage surfaces than acetone or other ketone-based solvents. It is more polar than gasoline, and so can be used to remove traces of many substances such as adhesives gasoline won’t touch. Rubbing alcohol is well-suited for the cleaning of CDs and DVDs. Interestingly, rubbing alcohol is useful for special effects in watercolor painting. Keep up-to-date with Bright Hub articles about the medicinal and other uses of rubbing alcohol.
