Remove permanent marker
Do you write accidentally on your whiteboard with a permanent marker instead of a dry erase marker? Add a little alcohol to a damp sponge and rub the area gently. The alcohol will dissolve the unwanted markings on any non-porous surface.
Eliminates the smell of your shoes
Put a sprayer on your bottle of alcohol and spray alcohol inside the shoes. Let the shoes dry in a well-ventilated area during the night, and enjoy your shoes without odor.
Remove difficult stickers
Don’t you hate not being able to remove the price of a garment for a gift? Try this trick: pour alcohol over the label and leave to stand for 10 minutes. The alcohol will dissolve the adhesive, making the sticker peel off easily.
Cleans and shines appliances, electronics
Pour a little rubbing alcohol on a sponge and rub any dirty appliance. The alcohol will leave a spectacular shine.
Soothe those sore muscles
After a particularly long day in the gym, the accumulation of lactic acid can make you feel sore. Apply a generous amount of alcohol on your sore muscles to get some relief.
Ticks are generally a nasty part of the outdoor fun, and can even transmit diseases. If you find any in your body, dip a cotton ball in alcohol and apply it directly on the tick.
Alcohol can stun the tick, making removal easy. After removing the tick, use alcohol to sterilize the bite.
Freshen up your home
Make an air freshener that is eco-friendly and easy to use to improve your home. Dilute 1 part alcohol with 4 parts water in a spray bottle. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 20 drops of an essential oil of your choice. Shake it vigorously and spray the places you want, leaving it pleasantly scented.
Clean your glasses
The isopropyl alcohol evaporates extremely fast, which makes it a perfect eyeglass cleaner. Simply spray the lens with a rapid discharge of alcohol and use a microfiber cloth to clean them. You will be left with nice clear lenses.
And this is all, clearly, this multi-purpose liquid is a winner in any home.
