Also, is there a substitute for rubbing alcohol?
The best alternative from an overall health and environmental standpoint is hydrogen peroxide. This chemical is used in either a 3% or 6% concentration in water today and, in contrast to IPA, it is capable of controlling spores in addition to bacteria.
Can I use hydrogen peroxide instead of rubbing alcohol?
FALSE. Using hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol to clean an injury can actually harm the tissue and delay healing. The best way to clean a minor wound is with cool running water and mild soap. Wounds that are large, deep, or bleeding nonstop should be treated by a professional.
Why is 70 Alcohol a better disinfectant than 95 alcohol?
Ethyl Alcohol is also a slightly better virucide than IPA. A 70% solution of Ethyl Alcohol 95% kills organisms by denaturing their proteins and dissolving their lipids and is effective against most bacteria, fungi and many viruses, but is ineffective against bacterial spores.
