With a need to save money and also for environmental reasons, more and more people are making their own cleaning products.

However, when you are new to making your own products you can feel a bit nervous about which recipes and uses will actually work or not. This is your chance to share your knowledge if you have a great tip or use for this product, or get some tips of your own to make sure you get the best results possible.

(Please note I've collected methylated spirits, a.k.a. denatured alcohol uses here, since this is a bit different than rubbing or isopropyl alcohol.)

rubbing alcohol uses

Almost everyone has isopropyl or rubbing alcohol in their medicine cabinet for first aid.

Since almost everyone already has it, and it is cheap, it is exactly the type of item I love finding additional uses for, and there are a lot of rubbing alcohol uses I've already found for cleaning our homes, and for stain removal.

That is because alcohol is a solvent, so it works well in cleaning up some messes that water itself can't even seem to make a dent in.

Of course, there are even more homemade cleaning recipes and tips for using this common household product than what I've already collected. If you make a homemade cleaning product which uses alcohol as one of the main ingredients, or otherwise have a great use for it, I would love it if you would share it with me below.

In addition, check out this round up of tips and uses for methylated spirits, also known as denatured alcohol.
