Alcohol is often used as a disinfectant, but it can be used in other cases. And everything else is a great cosmetic product.
1. Getting rid of bedbugs
Alcohol will help get rid of these nasty insects. Fill the spray bottle with alcohol and spray it in large quantities on mattresses and pillows. Since bedbugs lay eggs, it is necessary to repeat the operation several times to make sure that they have got rid of this problem.
2. Replacing deodorant
If you go on a weekend to rest and forget your deodorant, do not worry. Just sprinkle alcohol in the armpits. It eliminates bacteria that cause unpleasant odors. But you need to be careful and use it from time to time, as prolonged use can cause skin irritation.
3. Homemade ice bag
If you put the alcohol in the freezer, it does not completely harden, but will turn into a cold mass. Why is this so important? Thanks to this property, you can use it when you need a cold compress. Pour 1 part of alcohol and 2 parts of water into a sealed plastic bag. Remove all air and put the bag in the freezer. After about an hour the mixture will reach the desired consistency. You can use it in case of bruises or, if you are away from home, to cool food.
4. Kills lice
Alcohol is ideal for removing head lice. Fill them with a dispenser with a dispenser and add a few drops of lavender oil. Go out to the garden or to the balcony and spray the mixture on the scalp. Comb your hair with a comb to remove dead lice. It is recommended to put the comb in hot water and disinfect it for at least an hour.
5. Cleans your ears well
Very often for cleaning ears use cotton swabs. This is a dangerous method, as a result of which the sulfur from the ear moves deeper into the ear canal. For safer cleaning, you can use white vinegar and alcohol. They need to be mixed in containers, moisten a cotton pad and place it in the ear.
6. Removes nail polish
Many varnish removers contain acetone, which can damage your nails, and its strong odor can cause nausea. Using pure alcohol can be a great alternative. It may take longer, but nails will be healthier.
7. Relieves irritation from ingrown hair
Ingrown hair is difficult to remove. After the hair is shaved, some parts of the skin become covered with red spots. To cope with this phenomenon, you need to wipe the skin with alcohol, which will remove irritation, leaving the skin smooth.
8. Cleans the skin
Benzyl peroxide is commonly found in creams used to combat acne. Alcohol has the same characteristics. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it not only disinfects existing acne, but also softens the skin and prevents the formation of further irritation. Be careful when applying alcohol directly to the affected areas, because prolonged use may cause skin problems.
9. Fights Herpes
85% of people are carriers of the herpes virus, but not everyone has it. If you suffer from this, try using 70% isopropyl alcohol directly on the affected area. This will speed up the healing process.
10. Used to disinfect hands.
Alcohol is an excellent home disinfectant. Mix 100 grams of aloe vera with 50 grams of isopropyl alcohol gel and you get a great hand sanitizer.
